Torches for Sale

I attended The British School of Neon back in 1990. At the end of the course I purchased several new torches direct from the school. They have been in storage for many years, and the time has come for me to sell off the bench and ribbon burners.

But first I have to figure out what a fair price would be... so a bit of assistance would be much appreciated! If you recognize the make/model of the bench burner, or if you know current values for these specific torches, it would be MOST appreciated if you'd reply with any info you have. Thanks!


Bench Burner - Unknown Manufacturer - Premix? - Runs on Gas / Air - For Soda Lime or Leaded Tube Bending / ~ 40mm flame width


Ribbon Burner, Tubular - Herbert Arnold Model 150-D - Premix - Runs on Gas / Air -OR- Gas / Air+Oxygen - For Soda Lime, Leaded, or Borosilicate Tube Bending / Adjustable flame length, 90mm to 500mm (max length = ~19.5")


I am currently seeking a local neon shop where I can potentially bring in these torches to be tested. I have a small oxygen tank & regulator so I can potentially test the Arnold Ribbon burner completely. Both torches are used, but the bench burner has very few hours on it and no visible wear. The ribbon burner's tube had developed some surface rust while in storage, it has since been lightly sanded and oiled, and it has had a good port cleaning.

Again, any info on the current value of these torches would be very helpful. If you have any info, or are interested in either of these torches, you can contact me by either replying to this thread, or emailing to


PS: Click the link below to see pics of the 2 torches. It appears I cannot post the photos here. Thanks!
