Cheetah (13 Jet) Hand Torch
Optional Multi-Position Hook for Cheetah Hand Torch
The Cheetah hand torch is a 13 jet, Triple Mix Surface Mix Torch. The Triple Mix technology produces the most efficient flame available for today's glassblower. By surrounding the fuel with oxygen and then injecting oxygen directly down the fuel stream, the fuel is completely burned for a hotter cleaner flame. The oxygen streams are independently controllable by the green and blue valves. This provides a wider flame range and chemistry that is easily adjustable by the operator without changing tips or torches.
The Cheetah works soft and borosilicate glass with finesse and ease. The Cheetah is capable of a small flame the size of a pencil up to a 3/4" wide 20" long flame. The flame is hot and penetrating for borosilicate work up to 2.5" solid, and soft and clean to work the most delicate soft glass colors. The Cheetah is easily adjustable from a fuel rich reduction flame, to a clean neutral flame, to an oxygen rich oxidized flame, to an over-oxidized flame that is necessary for special glass effects.
The Cheetah hand torch is available with different size neck lengths from 6" to 18" or more. The neck length is measured from the valves to the head of the torch. The hand torch comes with 4' of 1/8" custom hose that is lightweight, durable and abrasion resistant. The hose features an aluminum mounting block that makes hook-up easier and a convenient mounting location to keep the hose out of the way.
GTT hand torches are great for hot shops, lathe working and finite heating in many applications. The powerful, lightweight setup allows for pinpoint heating and versatility in any situation.
