Quick Overview



From pad work to soldering our new Butane Heater offers technicians a versatile heat source for the repair shop. Designed to be used either as a torch or as a hot air supply with features that include precise flame control from soft yellow to sharp blue, hot air 'flameless' tip attachment, and reliable 'Piezo' self igniter for easy one hand lighting.

PAD WORK: With the hot air 'flameless' tip attachment the Butane Heater makes an excellent tool for doing pad work, greatly reducing the risk of scorching pads, felt, cork, or bodies. Designed with a unique heat exchanger to provide a focused hot air stream, along with easy temperature control the heater performs very well in heating key cup sizes ranging from piccolo to saxophone.

Remove the hot air tip attachment and use a soft yellow flame for melting the ends of shellac sticks or hot glue adhesives for application to the pad back or key cup. The angled torch head is designed to prevent shellac or glue from dripping down onto the heater and clogging the orifice.

SOLDER WORK: The Butane Heater has two controls for gas volume and air/gas mixture to get just the right flame size and temperature for any solder job from a medium yellow / blue flame for soft soldering (tin/lead) up to a sharp blue flame for high temp hard silver solder. Tipping or repositioning the torch will not alter flame intensity.

In addition to the hot air tip attachment, a pointed solder tip is also included to turn the heater into a soldering iron for electronic solder work.

The heater's broad no-tip solid design provides good stability on the workbench with the torch head positioned at a 45° angle. For additional versatility we offer the #2336 BASE (optional) to rotate heater and change head angle from vertical to horizontal or anywhere in between.
