Re: David - Parasene torches etc
- Thank you David, that's quite a seminar in blow torch use! I'll just pick up on a couple of points:

GoSystem seems to be the brand in the supermarkets.
GoSystem also have a "DIY Blow Lamp GB2070H" (Grievous Bodily Harm 2070?) which says "use at any angle" which sounds promising (including upside down in a hammock presumably?).
I have also found Hamilton Gas Products who seem to have very sharp prices (GB2070H at £6.30, gas cartridges at £1.95) - have a look, they're at:
Minimum P+P is £5.75 so it might be worthwhile to order more than one cartridge at a time.
But first I'll see what the coming Parasene 761 Fine Flame does, or does not do, and decide where to go from there. I might like to have a Fine Flame torch as well as a GP DIY one. Meanwhile on Monday I'll ask Parasene whether the 761 and 762 are "use at any angle" or not.
