Review

“The Alpha is the most amazing all purpose torch I have ever used. It blows all the others in it’s range out of the water including the Lynx. Running it on an oxy compressor, it’s efficiency is unbelievable. It cuts through 8mm boro like butter and also has one of the finest pinpoint flames for detail work.”
