The MECO Midget is a lightweight (just 6 oz.), compact torch that fit neatly in your hand and stays comfortable over hours of soldering/welding work. Its control knobs are close against the tip tube, making the flame easy to adjust with one hand, but preventing it from being knocked out of adjustment by casual bumping or jarring. The Midget is ideal for a variety of shops and home studios. Use with either acetylene or propane. Its all-brass construction makes the MECO torch handle durable and long-lasting; fits hoses with type "A" size hose fittings.
