    Default Weird torch question for you guys

    One of the machinests at work just found this torch buried in a old cabinet and gave it to me, which was cool! My question is at first I thought it was damaged, but after going through it, there are no marks indicating it got damaged. Has any of you guys seen a curved torch like this? Even the oxy lever is offset on a angle as for purpose to fit the rest of the design. At first I would have swore it was damaged, but all the evidence point toward thats how it was built. Am I hallucinating?

    Never seen one like that.
    But I use to work with, and had several guys work for me over the years that could break a cannon ball, so a torch wouldn't have a snow balls chance with guys like that!

    I was confused as well, then got to thinking maybe its a offset straight torch for overhead so your hand will be ofssset from slag drop. Still just guessing, looks to perfect and with the offset oxy lever its a real head scratcher. The company is, S-S torch company Brooklyn NY. Label says they have been around since 1914.

    If you google the serial number, it indicates that it is a military torch first issued in 1963. Figures the the military couldn't get it straight!

    Probably used on a mechanical track system or on a pipe cutter/beveler or a pattern tracer. What they used to do before CNC.

    If it were a regular torch that got bent it would have a right angle tip but it's straight.
    AND it's right handed looking at the bend!

    Very true! I think Mark may have hit the nail on the head with the pipe beveler.
