If you are referring to the micro torch oxibutane ones Radio Shack sold, the refills are extremely expensive for the amount of gas you get. For anyone needing to quantity of micro welding such as a jeweler. instead of buying expensive tiny cylinders, they move up to a micro welding torch. Invest in a jewelers torch instead.

You can see the normal lighter inside in this picture:

wow! you got that lighter torch at the hardware store? i thought you could only get them online :oops: sweet!
as for refills, you could find butane, and reuse an old cartage, like refill it.

lighters are really really cheap when bought in bulk... Last year I bought several dozens of them for 0.15$ each... and they were not the cheapest ones

@Jack_hogg
wow that's just sooo cool

Ah well, I think I am just lucky in this case.. :)
It's just has the same gasflow, but way hotter, like 1300 °C.
Well, Hope you find what you are looking for!

Yeah thats what I meant was the torches with the little yellow lighters inside, was curious if I could find a bulk pack of those online somewhere without having to buy the torch part. If they are really expensive maybe ill just look into something refillable.

Non-refillable, disposable lighters are very cheap. However you will save money if you buy a refillable lighter and a canister of butane to use.

I'd seen those small torches in bunnings, though didn't know if they were any good. I might have to grab one soon. (how do they compare to pencil torches?)

Is this what u mean?

inonickname wrote:(how do they compare to pencil torches?)

I havent used these, but I do know the flame is way bigger and
adjustable then those torches I bought.. If I want to adjust my flame
I should take my torch apart and adjust the lighter insise for a
bigger/smaller flame.. These pencil torches are perfect for soldering.
The reason I bought mine is for the upcomming fireworks in new year's
eve.

Back to the pack.., those are more expensive then a refillable lighter with butane gas...
although I got 50 lighters for €1,- :roll: But I think I am also lucky in this
case...

I would go for a refillable lighter :wink:
What is it for?

Possibly fuel for a combustion cannon, I really wanted to go with a portable propane setup however there aren't any small canisters that suit my needs. Ideally I wanted a propane canister the size of a 12g co2 cartridge but yeah they dont exist. At least not that I know of.

You could machine your own- there was a thread a while ago about smaller DIY propane cylinders and the safety issues involved.
