this is a great torch for beginers on a tight budget. it offers interchangeable tips that allow for small flames up to big bushy ones. a great torch to learn on! add a stand and ur good to go!
Nice ,cheap torch.

The national is a great torch to start out on. the versatility of tips makes it a great torch for bench work or as a hand torch for lathe application. The flame gets plenty hot for its size. I have seen guys pull stacks and make large solid sculptures with it. If your looking to get into glass art and don't have a lot of money go with this torch.

The national 3B is a good standard hand torch. There are many different tips available, and even a retro fit kit to use the smaller hand torches tips. Other than being slightly bulky in comparison, this torch can do everything a Smith or Gentec can. This version has the barbed fittings to hook into cut hoses. While the 3B-B has threaded connections for fresh hoses. I highly recommend at least 1-2 hand torches per station.
