This torch will be a great economical choice when setting up a studio with multiple torches. The Cricket was designed to get the best performance possible out of an economical 5 LPM 5 psi oxygen concentrator. The Cricket is not limited to small concentrator use, it does extremely well on 10 LPM concentrators as well as using tanked oxygen.
This means that it maximizes the output of smaller oxygen concentrators and is very efficient on tanked oxygen too! It can be run on 1/4 psi fuel gas and 3 psi oxygen! The Cricket comes standard with barb fittings and in-line filter screens to easily slide on 1/4” ID “T” grade hose and clamp. The standard Cricket valve body/cone is anodized purple with green and red knobs.

She is a great starter one!
Have been using this torch for 6 years, no problems at all. Gets nice and hot and rarely have to clean it. Great for beginners as it will not break the bank and can teach you all the basics of setting up and melting. Very fuel efficient as well

This is a great smaller torch. Don't let the small face fool you, this one packs a punch and can work 1-2 inch boro marbles. It may take longer, and it's not as versatile as larger torches, but it gets the job done. It's very easy on the oxygen - I run it on a 10lpm concentrator very happily, and it probably would be fine at 5. Because of this, it travels well, is a great starter torch, and a good torch for smaller pieces.
