    My coworker just sold me a Propane torch setup for 5 bucks. It has a 2500'F propane tank, 3 attachments and the sparker deal to start it with. Now, my silly question is...what can I do with it? I mean as far as my truck is concerned. Any help would be appreciated.

    Seriously, 5 bucks was too good to pass up. I can probably use it for Soldering or something, does anyone have experience with these things?

    I had to take the easy joke... The only thing I've really used the propane torches for is soldering. They're also pretty good at starting camp fires. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I think I have a friend who uses it to shape things, plastic and stuff. Wonding if I didn't waste 5 bucks cuz I don't do any plumbing. Sure I'll figure out something to use it on...like set fires!!!

    Could also use it for heating stuck bolt/nuts to help loosen them when removing when liquid wrench doesn't work. But don't use it right after spraying the liquid wrench on the bolt/nut. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
