The mighty Cricket is a standard surface mix burner featuring 5 jets. It is an entry
to intermediate torch, but even the skilled lamp worker will be surprised by the
performance of the Cricket.
The Cricket is capable of working both soft and borosilicate glass with ease. The
Cricket can work 1" solid borosilicate. The Cricket can work up to a 2" borosilicate
pendant and larger soft glass pieces. The flame characteristics of the Cricket make
it a very efficient, clean burning torch that makes the most difficult colors easy
to work and control. The penetrating heat of the flame make borosilicate beads and
pendants easy without any change to the torch setup.
This torch will be a great economical choice when setting up a studio with multiple
torches. The Cricket was designed to get the best performance possible out of an
economical 5 LPM 5 PSI oxygen concentrator. The Cricket 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! It can be run on 1/4 PSI fuel gas and
3 PSI oxygen! The Cricket 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 Cricket 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
wires. The standard Cricket valve body/cone is anodized purple with green and red
