8M Combo Surface Mix - National

2 Reviews


A great low cost and versatile mid level torch designed specifically for lampworking. Select any one of three surface mix tips (not included) or add the PA-1 pre-mix adaptor and use any of Nationals hand torch tips you may already own. Simple screw on design make changing tips a snap with no wrenches needed! The 8M comes standard with swivel ball mounting on a U shaped base for stable and easily adjustable operation, with stand included this torch is a bargain. Selecting the large 21 slot surface mix tip (SM21) will ensure you get the most out of what this torch offers. Also the 8R Rider premix torch was designed just for the 8M and bolts right on top, together the two offer surface mix heat and premix flexibility.

Can't beat it for the price.

Have experience with both the sm-7 and sm-21 tip. Great torch for small to medium sized work. One needs to recognize, however, that this is a starter torch. Haven't had any problems with configuration or operation for that matter. Word of advice: buy the 8r Ryder top torch kit.

Long lasting and versatile beginners torch

I started with this torch 12 years ago and still have it on the bench today. The thing that is great about this torch is it can go from surface mix to a premix with an adaptor. The wide variety of easily cleaned tips help to make any flame you can need for a torch of this size. After using both surface mix and premix options this torch provides, your decision will become a little easier when your ready to step it up. I fully recommend this torch to any beginning lampworker. I think I will go work with mine now. Remember never to change tips while still hot!!!!!!!!
