Lampworking - Lighting the Torch

When using my smaller torch, I always lit it with a flint and striker (like the ones in High School Chemistry labs.) Much to my surprise, when I went to light my larger dual-fuel torch with the same flint, the propane came out at a much higher rate, and the flint did not light it on the first or second strikes. On the third strike, a very large fireball was created. Lesson learned: unless you don't care if you lose all of the hair on your arms (I wasn't really fond of mine anyway,) use a lighter like those for a gas grill; do not use a flint on a large dual-fuel torch.
