    This was the one I bought - a fraction dearer but Hamilton were out of stock and I wanted the shorter hose anyway. The 4m one would really have been annoying.

    I'm still delighted with it ( and I'm loving all the suggestions of what I can do with the micro torch!)

    Buy from Cousins at your peril, as they have a dreadful reputation for poor customer service.

    Thanks for that info - even if I buy somewhere else do you think I need the regulator as well

    Hi Efo,
    The torch in the picture that you linked has a propane outlet already crimped to the hose, just plug this into a red propane bottle, the thread will be in reverse (opposite to normal) test the joints with a leak detector spray or foam after turning on at the bottle. …. And away you go…… always turn off at the bottle when finished.

    This type of torch is great because you can change the nozzles to different sizes from very small like the one in the picture to really large. … hope this helps…. Nick

    That's the one I'm using. I still love it. It comes complete. The only thing else you need, as Nick says, is a cannister of propane.

    A "quirk" to be aware of is the black button on the brass end that attaches to the tank. You can see it in the picture. When you light the torch after turning it off at the cannister you need to press the black button to get it to flow otherwise the flame dies. I was luckily warned as I'd have thought I had a faulty torch.
