I just got the Inviso Torch. I also have the Inferno. I like the Inviso Torch much better and lately I've been using it on everything. I carry around the butane refiller in my pocket. Practically every trick I do I use the Inviso Torch somehow. LOL.

I love the Inviso Torch too. I don't believe the Inferno is available for sale anymore. It was a rip off, I believe.

The Inviso Torch is great. Just a little care and maintenance every so often and it will last for years! Smile

Hey, I have it too and I love it. Unfortunately, I can't use it on stage. There's sort of a pyro ban.

But what do you mean you use it on everything? Do you mean you combine it with other tricks? Or do you burn everything down with it?

If the latter, then I suggest you get some help.

Have fun and be safe.

I have two Phoenix's and an inviso torch, and they are a great item!

Fire from almost anything, at almost any time (safety considered....) makes them a great buy for the performing magician who can use fire.

My Inviso Torch broke (no spark is produced) and is completely useless!

It's a shame, because it's a great gimmick!

Is the flint used up?

When the flint gets real small, after a lot of use, it can actually fly out so the spring is against the wheel, and that won't work.

But by broken, what do you mean? Does the wheel fail to turn, or simply fail to spark? If it turns, does it turn easy or with a little friction?

I once lost the little part that holds the flint and spring in. And the wheel just spun freely, so I knew there was a problem. I just pulled out another Phoenix and did the show, and found the missing part in the bottom of my fire magic supplies case. (I keep all my fire seperate from everything else.)

A great tip seldom spoken!

I keep all my flammables in a tight, well built metal toolbox. It has several notices concerning the contents permanantly applied to the exterior concerning the danger of the contents. If anything ever does accidentally ignite I may lose all my fire and flame effects but at least it won't burn down the house.
Boy: Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead only try to realize the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Boy: There is no spoon.
Neo: There is no spoon?
Boy: Then you'll see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.

Just go get yourself a cheap lighter, cannibalize it for its flint wheel, attach it to your Inviso Torch and you will be throwing flames again in no time.

I sincerely hope that your box is not air tight, but has holes in it, so if it catches on fire, the blast will have some way out. Otherwise you have a little bomb on your hands.

Good point!

But, yep, it is reasonably vented, but separate enough to keeps other things from bumping into the volatile objects contained within...

If your Inviso Torch is just missing the flint, go to your local grocery store. They should sell Ronson flints at the courtesy counter (or where they keep the cigarettes). They are cheap and come in packs of five, so you have a few good months before you have to buy more. Smile

I don't have an Inviso Torch but I did watch a demo on line. It did look very impressive. My question is on the demo— it was used with both hands put together, is this the only way to use it or is it just being shown how it is most often used? I really don't know what it is so can it be used with one hand against a prop or used with one hand alone?

It seems to fill the hands with gas from what I saw on the demo. If this is true I should be able to place my hand or hands over a fire proof bowl and light what is inside it. Has anyone done this before? Am I on to something here or do I not understand what the Inviso Torch really is? Thanks.

The Invisio Torch is a device that allows you to have a large flame come from your hands. Furthermore the device can quickly be removed from sight once the fire is out, so you can, say, make a large flame, then immediately turn your hands around to show them empty.

It's a pretty cool item, unfortunately it seems I have lost mine. I don't know where I put it! If you want a cool flame from your hands this is the item to get. It has nothing to do with gas or anything. It's a lot like a normal lighter, but modified, and with a much larger flame.

Jack thanks for answering back. Now that I know I won't have to deal with gas lines running to my hands to cause the flame I'm more interested than ever. Can you load it at a moment's notice or do you need to plan ahead and be ready to perform? I guess what I'm saying is that I want to at anytime or place be able to shoot the flame from my hands.

I just got my Phoenix back from being repaired (for free!). It's great, I've only used it a few times but I love it, easy to use.

Den, talk to Jim then...

I have three, one original Invision Torch, and two Phoenixs and use them a lot, with big flames, and have never burned one up. I can see that happening if you hold it flaming too long. But I think the greatest effect comes from the surprise flash, and then you are clean before they can deal with the thought of "WOW that was real fire".

But Jim Pace stands behind his products better than anyone else I have known. SO if the device was faulty, it is worth a try.

Well I should hope that he stands behind his product. It seems that it is the Zippo of fire gimmicks. With all the regulations that you have to follow to make things like this legal, you may as well go the extra mile and make it so good that you have a life-time guarantee. Smile

I noticed that the plastic parts of my invisotorch are also melting. I was wondering if shifting up the noose would help... haha... but I had a problem shifting it up too.

So perhaps I did hold the thing too long.

Oh, and I lost quite a bit of hand hair due to wind direction and the flame not extingishing completely.... dangerous stuff... Smile
