National 3A Blowpipe
and 6B Torch
for Flameworkers and Glassblowers


national 3BB torch for glass lampworking glassblowing National 3bNational 6B

These torches accommodate a large variety of tips. Torch body does not include a tip. Select tips from below. If your not sure which one, try the HTC-1 Tip, a medium size tip. These torches are premix torches. These pre-mix torches work well with borosilicate glass like Pyrex. These pre-mix torches do not work with soft soda-lime glass like Moretti/Effetre Glass. The only difference between the 3A-B and 3B-B torches is the hose fitting.

The HT-2 and HT-3 are the most sensitive tips to burning out and these are not recommended for beginners who are learning how to adjust their torches properly - therefore these and all tips are not guaranteed from burning out. Please see the person who instructed you to learn the proper torch adjustment.

Gas Hoses Gas Twin Hose Set

Use this hose when you use a two gas torch (oxygen and propane). To attach torch, push the cut ends onto the torch and secure with a hose clamp. These are twin hose sets, one for oxygen and one for propane. The brass end of the hoses are attached to the gas regulators. Propane hose fittings are left handed threads and colored red and oxygen is right handed and colored green - This prevents a mix-up when attaching hoses.


CAUTION Do not use the easy to find oxygen/acetylene type hoses. The propane gas will rot them. The hoses we sell are made for all types of gas including propane. Hose ends have female brass fittings.

The below larger diameter hose is only used if when you need a large hose to fit over the large inlet fittings on some torches. (You can get the smaller 1/4" hose listed above on these large inlet fittings with a bit of effort. A trick is to immerse the end of the hose in very hot water to soften the end.)

Leak Detection Fluid

Item# Description Price
leak detection fluid
LT100
Leak Detection Fluid 4oz bottle

A must if you assemble your gas equipment. Use when connecting gas hoses, regulators, torches, flashback arrestors, quick connects, etc.

After tightening your fittings, pressurize your gas line. Then dribble a few drops on every fitting. If there is a leak, you will see bubbles at the leaky fitting. You may hear about using soap to check for leaks. It is VERY DANGEROUS! Many soaps have oil in it and oil + pressurized oxygen can be very dangerous. Google it! This liquid is specially formulated just for this purpose and is the only liquid you should use for checking gas leaks.
