The Red Max Torch - A torch for both small and large work. This torch is really two torches in one with two independent sets of valves. The large flame torch is surface mix. The top torch can be either surface mix or pre mix. You decide. Same price for either configuration. Two completely different sets of oxygen and gas valves allow you to control each flame independent of each other. The large flame tip is a 44 port surface mix round shaped flame.

Choose your torch - Same Price

redmax tip Surface Mix Red Max Torch -Choose between a Minor Bench Burner (minus the heat sink) OR a MEGA Minor which are mounted on top of the torch. Because the top torch is a surface mix, you can work any type of glass, both soft glass (Moretti/Effetre) or hard glass (Pyrex/Borosilicate).
Or
redmax with premix Pre Mix Red Max Torch -  Many artists believe a pre-mix works better for borosilicate (Pyrex) glass. You CAN NOT work with Soft (Moretti/Effetre) glass with this torch. A pre-mix torch allows you to change the top torch tip, anything from a small single hole tip to a multiple hose tip. Two tips are included with this torch. See more tips below.

Gas Hoses


Use this gas hose when you use a two gas torch (oxygen and propane) like a Minor Burner. Most torches are attached to the hose by pushing the cut end (no brass fitting) on to the torch and securing with a hose clamp. These hoses have two attached hoses, one for oxygen and one for propane. The end of the hoses are attached to the gas regulators. Propane hose fittings are always left handed threads and oxygen is right handed so there is never a mixup attaching hoses. The green hose is oxygen and propane is red. 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. All hose endings have brass fittings and are female. The fastest way to order any of these items is to call us toll free at 1-888-4HOTGLASS.

(You can get the smaller 1/4" hose listed above on these large inlet fittings with a bit of effort. A trick is to emerse the end of the hose in very hot water to soften the end.)

Flashback Arrestors

Flashback Arrestors - In some rare situations, a flame can travel back down a hose to the gas tank and cause an explosion. This device helps prevent this reverse gas flow and flashback. This device uses a reverse flow check valve and a flame arrestor that stops this flashback flame. Packaged and priced with both an oxygen and a propane arrestor.

Leak Detection Fluid

Item# Description Price
leak detection fluid 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.
