Ratings & Reviews
Great starter kit a lot of bang for your buck!
by Andres Marquez
Well I want to give it 5 stars but for some odd reason it won't let me give it 5 stars must be some kind of glitch but anyhow I'm rating it 5 stars based on the kit not the torch itself because there's already reviews on the torch but for $750 shipped to your door for everything it comes with is amazing and I loved it, although the picture did throw me off a bit showing the V tool and the blow hose that aren't included they're not listed in the kit description so I can't even be upset cause it was such a great deal for me to start glass blowing.
