Tool Review, Arnold 141/3 ES, Not Your Typical Hand Torch
There are three control knobs on these torches. One for the entire burners’ propane, and two for oxygen. While most all torches allow for inner and outer adjustment of propane, Arnold believes less control means the lampworker can further focus on their glass instead of making constant torch adjustments. Just turn on the propane to the burner, adjust the inner and outer oxygen, and away you go with the hottest and most direct flame available on a hand torch. If the outer fire is not needed the outer oxygen can be cut and the flame will die to just an inner fire with a propane flame roaring. Similar to other torches in that there is inner and outer control, but engineered with one less knob to work with.

Just Being Green At ABR Imagery
When you shop at ABR Imagery you are also helping support green business initiatives. For example, we recycle shipping boxes we receive so that we use as few boxes as possible to ship products. We also use biodegradable wrapping materials so that if the end user doesn’t recycle them, they break down organically back in to the environment. We use a biodegradable foam when we ship so you get great protection, but we also reduce transportation demands do to lower shipping weights. Also, our warehouse lighting is on motion detection so if we are not in that isle the lights go off to save energy.
