Yellow Jacket Hand Torch - GTT
GTT's instructional DVD is now available to view at www.glasstorchtech.com and will no longer be included with torches.
The Yellow Jacket hand torch is a super precision hand torch featuring 1 jet that CANNOT be blown out … PERIOD*. This torch can be shaken, used in turbulent air, set down, and moved quickly without extinguishing the flame. This means no more lost work due to the flame blowing out or popping right at the most critical moment while working on your masterpiece.
The Yellow Jacket hand torch is capable of a super stable stinger flame less than 1/8” long and nearly invisible to the eye. It also produces a 16” long by 3/8” wide large flame with incredible power for only 1 little jet.
The flame characteristics consist of the wide range of flames that GTT is known for in every torch. From the reduction flame to the super oxidized flame and everything in between. The neutral flame range has a wide, easy to find “sweet spot”, unlike most torches on the market that have a narrow neutral flame that is hard to find. The oxidized flame is powerful and stable to keep the needle flame focused on the work at hand.
The Yellow Jacket hand torch comes with custom lightweight fuel and oxygen hose. The hose is coiled so that it stays out of the way when being used or stored. The ends of the hose have 1/4” hose barbs and a mounting block to attach to the work bench, table or lathe. This allows the Yellow Jacket to be at hand when needed, without the tangled mess of hoses all over. The hose length is 18” when coiled and over 48” when extended! The standard neck length is 4” with a 45 degree bend near the face of the torch.

GTT makes another banger
great for detail work. not sold on the "custom" hanger GTT sells with this torch, but overall a great piece of kit.

Been using a smith little torch for the last 5 years only 3 of those I had upgraded to a larger blast shield tip. As i progressed on welding attachments I utilized an extra national hand torch where I needed to move more glass.
<br>I got this Yellow Jacket a few months ago and it has really stepped up my work time which leads to faster welds and a more mellow work day. I only use the smith little torch for quick things mostly because the knobs are loose its very easy to operate with one hand. My crisp GTT not so much but I know from experience that will change over time.
<br>You can easily set this down on the knobs and have it easily accessible for longer welding projects in comparison my smith little torch would sometimes randomly flip over and start torching random things on my graphite pad.
<br>If you're an experienced glassblower working on a little torch I'd highly recommend owning this GTT! You will make back your money easily in improved welds and time efficiency.
