I bought a BernzOmatic propane torch.
It say's on the back it is a manual triggered.
Meaning they want you to buy some type of sparker for it.

I am just wondering if I can use a match instead of buying the sparker?
Or if I can some how create a spark for it without a sparker to get it going.

Thanks for any help.:rolleyes:

How about an intro 1st, in the introduction forum, that's the 1st step on getting answers on here.

Thanks

So , is using a match not the thing to do?
Because in chemistry class to start a Bunsen burner we just used a match.

Why would this be any different?

Wow. I can't express enough words how important this is. Just when I thought I have taught it all, you show up. I have a better, and more obvious question for you. What the hell do you need that torch for in the first place?

I need to start it so I can solder some copper pipes together.
At least can I pick up a sparker at a cumberlands.

I usually just disconnect a gasline and spark that off.......hold my copper fittings over the flame and Wa La its soldered. No torch needed. To make the spark i use an old electrical cord i cut off and I just groend it out to the gas line.....Bingo we have ignition. You might need to reset the breaker in the electrical box and then call the fire department. Just remember safety 1st!!!!!<a joke...do not attempt>:laughing:

Seriously dude, you could have bought a sharkbite fitting. Take the torch back and buy a sharkbite. My whole house is plumbed in sharkbites. I used a bunch too. had to put those 6ft sticks of 1/2" copper together under the slab with something. No solder required, you just stick them on and Wha La. Finished. Take the torch back, you'll burn your eye out.
