Works brilliantly and easy to use. Arrived on time.
All the tools you need to torch fire your metal clay pieces in one convenient set!
This set includes:
* 1x Deluxe Torch - The Master Class blowtorch comes in stylish chrome, with a non-slip metal body, piezo trigger ignition, safety lock and detachable stand. It has a nice large flame, perfect for metal clay firing. Manufactured to British Standard BS EN ISO9994. This torch really is easy to fill, lasts longer than the economy version, and is self-igniting.
The torch has a base, so you can put it down safely if you need to take a short break in the firing. Use with a firing block. Fill with standard aerosol butane gas lighter refill (which you can buy from most supermarkets, tobacconists, hardware stores and news agent). PLEASE NOTE: Butane gas is NOT the same as lighter fluid - you must make sure you get gas, not fluid.
We recommend you let the torch rest and cool off a little every 10 minutes of firing.
PLEASE NOTE - You must direct the flame at a 45° angle, and with a distance of about 5 centimetres from your silver. If you do not fire at the correct angle you will cause damage to the plastic casing around the nozzle.*
* 1x Fibre Brick - Place your Art Clay pieces on the heat proof firing block when firing with a torch. Measures approximately 110 x 50 x 150mm.
* 1x Stainless Steel Tweezers - Stainless steel high quality tweezers with a pointed tip. Approximately 12.5 cm.

The set was good, BUT the ignitor has stopped working on my torch. I haven't even had it a month yet. Also the lock is very temperamental which is not exactly safe! **RESPONSE FROM METAL CLAY** Hi Kelly - we're sorry to hear this. These things do happen sometimes with torches but only very rarely with the deluxe torch - it really is a great torch. We've sold thousands of it and have had very few problems so this isn't normal after a month's use. As mentioned on FB and via email, we will certainly do what we can to get this sorted for you asap.
