    hehe, I like Dennis' answer. But yeah, it's a decent lighter, big as hell, like cell phone sized with a jet engine inside of it. So you can use it to light your cigar and weld at the same time.

    HA... I won one at an event at my local shop but haven't fueled it or used it as of yet. Nice freakin' lighter and I hear it's well made. It's big though. I wonder if the fuel lasts a good while? Anyway, it's a nice lighter.

    According to Tim (TGO), the fuel lasts a good while. I've used his and the thing is a beast.

    I heard you have to have a butane tanker truck come to your house and fill it up and then they send you a bill just like heating fuel ......I'm just sayin' ...

    I think the pOint of table lighters is that the fuel lasts for a while. This would explain the size.. A pocket lighter can't have that big of a fuel reservoir or it wouldn't fit in the pocket. A table lighter, however, can have a significantly larger reservoir because they generally aren't regularly transported.

    This is good because I was in need of a good welder and now I can save myself a little money... What would I do without you guys ?

    So I fired this puppy up tonight. Wow is all I have to say. Only thing is, for the price (which well I got for free but still) there is no fuel gauge. Other than that you could light a couple of cigars just from the FLAME!

    I have a buddy that keeps one in his golf bag. NO WAY he'll run into too much wind out on the course now. It is heavy as hell, but a great tri flame that'll light anything - Cank make sure you use a good mask and gloves with this one (lol)!

    I have one. Pretty nice, holds a lot of fuel. The flame is huge. I burnt the Sh** out of the 1st stick I tried toasting. My fault though. I should have played with the flame a little more before lighting up.

    This is the house lighter at the Lit cigar lounge at the Snoqualmie Casino. It is a beast and gets the job done quick. I'm really thinking about getting one...
