Step Up From Minor

This torch is perfect for soft glass or small boro. I have worked 19mm heavy wall pretty easily with this torch. Offers a little more heat and oxy efficiency compared to the Minor.

This is my first dual fuel torch and I absolutely love it! I melts my soft glass in seconds and also works well with small boro work that I am now learning to work. It has a great flame that gets fairly bushy down to a pin point flame for small detail work. It is a new lampworker must have torch at a great price.

I've had this torch for years now and have never had an issue with it.. Very little maintenance required and I've managed to make some substantial pieces on this torch. It packs more punch than it looks like!

Although Nortel torches are a bit of an oxygen hog I love my mega minor. I've done everything from vessel pieces to micro pull millefiori with it. Works great by itself or as a top mount.

Great beginner
