    I used it daily for years and was happy with it. Rarely you clean the carbon from the tip. I have lost track of it since retiring. I can't justify leasing the tanks when they get used so little.

      For sleeves I cut the legs off jeans that the kids/grand kids out grow, sew a hem in the cut end and run a lace through it.

          One of my "strikers" is a repurposed EMPTY BBQ style lighter. After it had served its initial purpose, I ground / sanded the tip back a bit to be able to get my torch tip closer to the igniter spark. Works well.

              I still use the old fashioned strikers like the one you mentioned, no problems with those springing back.
              II did have one that would get stuck and wouldn't spring back but I think it was the flint's, they were too soft.
              I do have a more modern one, it's one of those piezoelectric type strikers.

              About the sleeves.... Never wear an old Carhartt jacket when MIG welding.

              I have some heavy-duty leathers that I use for welding or cutting. I also have a real light flame retardant lab coat.
