    Default 1996 PSL herbert arnold. 40mm fresh J Howard tune

    Sad to have to make this decision, but we are moving, and my wife said i was only allowed to have one torch that cost over 1000$ for the time being. So this one has to go. You can confiem with Jason that he tuned this torch in the last 4 months. TOrch works great, and does not have very much wear for its age. it could use a spit shine, and as well people keep thinking it is a color model, but this is just a rust free metal paint job I did on the base and the back cover, but still a good paint job IMO. The L marver on it is not inclded, and you dont want it anyhow, its just a shitty one I made a few years ago. I may entertain trades, but cash is king. Paypal fees and shipping are on the buyer, expect shipping to be around 60$ (but your shit will get there safe).
    2800$ OBO

    He has not.

    jason puts lock tite on the valves inside, not to mention he just paid hundreds to have it dialed in.

    This was after he could not get it quite right himself.

    boro is correct. Can't imagine why I would spend six hundred bucks on a torch and then change what I had done to it.

    I am keeping my mirage for the time being, and eventually going back to an esl. This 40 is great, but my mirage works way way faster, and that is more valuable to me right now, nothing makes prettier fume and color than a herbie. I hate to see it go. Keep in mind Jcrust... I am not broke, so keep your attitude in check. I have you blocked for being a dick to me in the past and I can only see this because I am on tapatalk. I will sell you, and you can ask around, I do shit right and keep my word always, but I have no need to deal with any bs from anyone.

    Yeah I wasn't a dick to you at all actually I was super polite and respectful to you as I am with everybody in real life or the interwebs and you flipped out on me. I just asked about the tune because I know you tinker with them. Anyway I guess I'll pass dealing with you sounds like a headache. Good luck with your sale and no hard feelings.

    still available. Keep in mind that this torch has a reducer and the fittings needed to install the reducer and torch as well it was just refurbed and tuned by jason howard. Got several messages complaining about my price because jason is selling new ones for 3300$. Keep in mind that you will still need a reducer and fittings for this new torch. They are only 2600 new from HA right now without jasons tune (in my opinion the tune has value). Your paying for the custom tune and refurb, along with the regulator and fittings, quick connect ETC if you buy rom me (torch is ready for the bench). As well, this is a vintage zenit.... not the same torch as the jason howard model or the new zenit (preference is preference, I have heard plenty). 2800$ shipped, paypal fees on the buyer, shipping on me...... if you dont like my price, please send a pm and tell me what price would make you a buyer today (if you just want to message to complain about my price, dont bother)
    thanx

    PS. I do not use air, so I have none of the air fittings, as well dont forget you will have to buy this stuff for any torch if you want to use air, none of them come with it, unless noted in the description.

    Wow tune jobs have gone way up since 2 yrs ago! I wonder why it cost so much to tune? Does it take that much time? Just curious and suppose J will chime in possibly. Hey why does the face look like it's all dirty bro? And my real question is how much o2 does this need to rage larger vessel/ sculpture work constantly, and I use a kobuki now but also love beths softer flame so always thought one day? Big thanks ahead of time

    It is an oxy hog, and the face looks pretty black and shit because I was burning on it for 2 weeks before I took the pic and did not buff it off. The tune from J was 300$ and the resurfacing and valve cleaning, shipping etc made the price double. The face of this torch is fresh as fuck (because of resurfacing), and there is no internal leaking.
