The Bobcat is newly redesigned for more versatile flame characteristics. The Bobcat
is a standard surface mix torch with 7 jets. The Bobcat is capable of flame sizes
from a 2" long pinpoint flame for detail work and finite heating to a 9/16" diameter,
13" long flame for 1.5" solid borosilicate glasswork . The Bobcat can work up to
3" borosilicate pendant. It is great for making beads, marbles and sculptures in
soft or hard glass.
The flame characteristics of the Bobcat make it a very efficient, clean burning torch
that makes the most difficult colors and effects easy to work and control. The penetrating
heat of the flame make borosilicate beads and pendants easy without any change to
the torch setup.
The Bobcat runs very well on 5 LPM 5 PSI concentrators with optimal performance on
a 8 LPM concentrator. Fuel pressures can be run as low as 1/4 PSI on Natural gas
or Propane. The Bobcat makes the most heat out of the available fuel and oxygen
for an extremely clean flame with no carbon on the torch when run properly. The Bobcat
is not limited to small concentrator use, it does extremely well on 10 LPM concentrators
as well as using tanked oxygen. This means that it maximizes the output of smaller
oxygen concentrators and is very efficient on tanked oxygen too!
The Bobcat comes standard with barb fittings and in-line filter screens to easily
slide on 1/4” ID grade “T” hoses and clamp securely. The stainless steel base has
4 holes for securing the torch to the work table, and can be used as a forming and
shaping tool for hot glass pieces. Also included are complete instructions and cleaning
