I am in search of some information and advice. I need to get a good high-BTU propane torch for silver soldering. My hand-held canister types are too small, so I've made-do by courting oxy-acetylene disaster. It's just too hot.
1) Does anyone know of a Sievert dealer in the USA? I'd buy Sievert equipment if convenient.
2) My second choice would be Goss. Does anyone use Goss equipment? If so, what does your kit consist of? Goss offers a bewildering array of choices.
a) What would be preferable, Goss threaded handles and tips; or
Goss snap-in handles and tips?
b) What would be preferable, pencil-type tips or "brush" tips. The
Goss brush tips bear a close resemblance to some of the Sieverts
that I've seen. I realize pencil tips focus the heat better; but, I don't
want to cope with a high velocity flame that blows flux and solder
all over the place. I suspect that it will boil down to using brush tips
for pre-heating and pencil tips for the actual soldering.
3) An on-line source mentioned Victor Turbo Torches; but, I'm finding their Web site less friendly than Goss's. So, I've not been able to get much information about their equipment.
4) Does anyone have any more information or advice to give?
I'll be posting this on the General forum, too.
