Blow torch

A small self-contained hand-held torch that burned some volatile liquid hydrocarbon such as gasoline. The fuel was fed to the burner by pressurizing the fuel tank with air from a small self-contained hand pump. The flame was not hot enough for welding and was mostly used to heat Soldering irons or pipe connections requiring soldering.
