Minor Burner, Mega Minor, Bobcat, Lynx, Mini CC Bench Burner - High Oxy, Little Dragon Bead Burner 7

Mid Range, Mid-Range Plus, WildCat, HellCat, Little Dragon Bead Burner 21, Bullet Burner 7-14
Suggested usage's: For soft or hard glass. Flames are from two to three times as large as the torches listed above. Work soft glass up to 1" in diameter or heavy wall hard glass tubing up to 1" in diameter comfortably. You can work slightly larger glass at a slower pace. The Mid-Range Plus has two flames, one above the other. The top flame is a Minor Burner.

Major Burner, Red Max, CC Bench Burner
Suggested usage's: For soft or hard glass, except for the CC Bench Burner which is recommended for hard glass only.
