flame is directed; always keep the flame pointed down towards the
ground. Never point the flame towards flammable materials,
buildings or people. Carefully follow instructions on propane
cylinder concerning use; do not store cylinders near fire or source
of heat; do not puncture or incinerate empty cylinders. The nozzle
of the BareBlaster Ice Torch remains hot even after use; do not
touch the nozzle or put the nozzle down where it could come into
contact with flammable materials. Carefully allow the nozzle to
cool in a safe area.
The BareBlaster Ice Torch is designed to operate with most
standard 14 to 26 disposable propane cylinders available at most
hard or outdoor/camping stores.
