Getting Started Soldering - Torches

There are many different torches for soldering, I am not going to go into all the ins and outs of these. I suggest starting with a small butane torch (the Micro Butane Torch is excellent) like the ones used in kitchens for crème brulee – these get very hot (2500°F) and you can get a lot done with these small torches. It is less intimidating than getting tanks and is easily portable (in case you don’t have a permanent studio set up).
