I finally got around to buying a trigger activated propane torch - a
Bernzomatic TS 3000.
My old brass need-a-spark-to-light-it torch has a single dark blue cone
in the center surrounded by a longer lighter blue flame.
The TS 3000 has three small dark blue flames that point away from the
center of the nozzle and then the rest of big flame around them. There
is no center cone.
Is the TS 3000 broke or just different?
