with the solder tip attached push upward on the little black knob on the tip, its spring loaded and on one side reveals a small little chamber where you can see a small flame once you turn the gas on and apply a spark/match to the little opening. keep the knob still pushed up all this time. let the fire inside keep going, if you let the knob down and the window to the chamber closes before it gets hot enough the iron wont work but if you wait for a bit with the fire inside, then right below the tip you'll start to see that area glow red, once its glowing red your good to go, you can close the chamber and the catalyst will "burn" the gas in the area and make heat instead of the fire heating the tip. once you close the chamber you're holding open with your thunmb then the fire goes out, if its hot enough you're set to go, otherwise rinse repeat.

How do i clean torch? thank you for any help

Ginoni Milan Serum If you use a curling iron or other heat tool on your hair, be sure that the products you use for cleaning, conditioning and styling your hair are heat-activated. Heated hair appliances used on a daily basis can damage your hair, if you don't take the proper precautions. Heat-activated products can provide your hair with extra moisture, and help to reverse the damage caused by high temperatures. If you plan to head out right after work, it is easy to get a fresh look by dusting some matte powder on oilier areas with a big brush. Make sure that you take care of your cheeks, as this is where a lot of oil will fester.

Torch doesn't have correct flame

Without knowing the specific torch tip you're working with and what you're welding/soldering the only thing any one can suggest is cleaning the tip. You can get welding tip cleaning files any where that sells welding supplies.

My Ryobi string trimmer (CS26) starts fine but bogs down when it gets hot.

Try turning high speed screw (furthest out from engine) clockwise 1 quarter turn. Also check spark aresster screen. You will find it at muffler exit. Usually 1 screw holing it in. Remove it and clean, I use a bernzomatic torch to burn out deposits.

Starts easily, but won't rev for 10 mintues. After warm, max speed is low / lacks power. New plug & gas filter

Check to see if the muffler is blocked.There is a screen (spark arrester) at muffler exhaust these get blocked. Usually 1 screw holding it in. Remove screen and replace or clean. I use bernzomatic torch to burn out these deposits.

Bernzomatic 165w cordless(gas)soldering kit keeps going out even when full of gas

It sounds like the main orfice in the tip is partially plugged and causing a lack of fuel after startup, take the unit apart and using a torch cleaning set clean all the small openings and blow out any loose dirt or contamination you find and then try it. Be carefull when you clean out the orfice that you dont sratch it or deform it in any way as it will have to be replaced if this happens. Hope This Helps Don
