Default Please help me find a new lighter for my bottle caps

Please someone help me. I am tired of buying the wind resistant lighters at Walmart. I do such a high volume of caps that I swear I should buy stock in lighters. I need a good long handled torch lighter or refillable lighter. Anyone know of any? I prefer a wind resistant flame (one that doesn't move). I have googled till I can google no more lol! Here's the ligthers that I pulled out yesterday..............NONE of them work. UGH.

Have you tried an embossing heat gun? Someone mentioned that on here for singed flowers but maybe it can help you out?

I use a culinary torch. (The same one I use to make creme brulee. Yum!) It is refillable and has a "lock on" switch so you don't have to hold it on. About 15.00 I think.

WOW.. You SHOULD really invest in a heat gun.. it doesnt blow as hard as a hair dryer which makes it ideal for bottlecaps.. Use the 50% coupon at micheals.. you should be able to pick one up for less than 20.00.. Now refilling needed

Someone in another goup who makes caps said she uses a toch and loves it. I hate the lighters too mine are all out and when i make a huge batch it hurts my hand holding the safety lock.

Cristi,

I use a butane torch that we got at Lowes. It works awesome. It is so much easier, you don't have to keep holding it down, you can lock it on. Makes life much easier. HTH!
