Now, this is one gimmick that I love, when it's working. But it's been giving me trouble recently. The flint wheel doesn't seem to be contacting the striker anymore, I've tried playing with the catch, taking the wheel off and putting it back on again, but still, I can't generate enough friction to get a spark. Can anyone please help, or is my set faulty?

Hi,

Maybe the flint has worn down?
Twist that little black stick bit below the head, and it will pop down on a spring. Then remove the flint wheel and put in a new flint. (available from any news agent)

Hope that helped. If not, sorry Smile

Lewis.

Or maybe you could try and send an email to Jim Pace. There is nothing better than going to the source of things.

Hello,

There is an adjustment type screw or control. It pushes the flint either closer or farther depending which way you turn it. Adjust it and try that out. Smile

The flint wheel on my inviso torch (Phoenix)
broke the first time I used it.

I just bought a refillable lighter and used its flint wheel assembly.

This inviso-torch sounds cool.
It's not the size of the wand,
but the magic in it !

My inviso torch melted the first time I used it, and I hadn't even left it on for very long. I got another one, and the wheel broke off it. It might be salvagable with a little rigging, but it kind of turned me off from the effect.

Inviso torch has broken on me 3 times!!! I'm sure I didn't apply too much pressure and still, snap and the flint wheels broke as well, Jim Pace has a lot of great stuff so is this it just isn't built to last.

Honestly, I hate the Inviso Torch. Even though it looks good, It breaks too many times and is a real hasel to deal with. I just simply threw mine in my Cupboard and use my Fire Card instead.
