Using a soldering iron or a blow torch in both a functional and creative way can be a skill that can go a very long way and expand your way of thinking around certain problems you may encounter. Used when a high-temperature naked flame is required, a blow torch can be used for soldering, brazing, or even softening paint in preparation for removal – anything short of any welding applications.

Differences between Brazing and Welding
Brazing is a process that involves the joining of two or more metal items by melting and flowing a filler metal into the joint, with the filler metal having a lower melting point than the adjoining metal. Unlike welding, brazing does not melt the base metals to create these joints as the temperatures in which brazers run are much lower than that of welders.

Piezo Ignition – What Are They?
A piezo ignition is a type of ignition that is used in portable camping stoves, gas grills, and some lighters. Piezo ignition uses the principle of piezoelectricity, which, in short, is the electric charge that accumulates in some materials in response to mechanical deformation
