I know it’s not woodworking but this Harbor Freight weed torch works great, I bought the one with a igniter for $30 minus the 20% it was $26, don’t burn down your house.

I assume this is to kill weeds around the house, not for…..smoking.

Was there a recent recall for this? I think I saw something like that.

That massive torch also works well for adding black color highlights to outdoor projects.
Some folks know it by it’s fancy name: shou sugi ban (焼杉板)

Cheers!

I used the same torch to blacken basswood for my plantation shutter project. Turned out rather beautiful. Would of been better if I had more experience with burning wood as I can now tell where in some places needed more time under the flame.

I donated my old torch, after buying one of these. The control over the flame is great.

And, yes, the beat weeds and snow pretty hard.

Have your say...
