    Hey!
    I just got a Stickbrick Jr that Im really enjoying-totally impressed! Only thing that concerns me- Im noticing some charring at the flame intake hole. Is this typical? Anything I can do to prevent it? Is the hole too small or something?

    I have never had any combustion occur, Ive only used the torch that comes with it. The only sign of any charring anywhere is on the edge of the intake, in the pic.
    Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Ok quick follow up, I used some sandpaper and a small dowel to enlarge the flame intake. Works great now. Really like this thing!

    can't see your picture for some reason...

    not important to see it for this statement though...

    ANY...and I repeat ANY charring or scortching of the wood is not normal, but it is expected if your not aiming right...

    if it's on the exterior to prevent it..you can cover it (the portion around the base of the intake) with foil...until you get the hang of the operation.

    if it's on the inner portion...you can find metal tubes and get them cut to fill whatever section is affected to cut down on potential charring...

    BUT, it's easier to develop a method to change the way heat...i'd start first by backing the flame up...if it's getting close enough to lick the wood on the inside it's (hot) enough to combust.

    make sure you aim in the center of the tube too...think of a toilet seat...and don't heat the side of the intake (think I saw a video of it online..lol)

    good luck!

    Thanks for the suggestions! I get the feeling that the intake hole on mine was a tiny bit off center. After enlarging the intake hole the way I described above with sandpaper, the charring has never returned- it works really well now. I esp like using it with a water attachment.

    No that was some great advice. Mine really wasn't off by much at all- but enough that the lip/edge of the drilled hole was getting direct heat on one of the sides. I sanded it until the intake hole in the wood matched up with the hole in the glass tube and its been great ever since. Hope that all made sense.

    Sorry I don't have a pic...and Ive already demonstrated how bad I am at posting them lol

    it makes perfect sense...my beta hydro brick has a hole that is slightly off and it has the same issue.

    I'm just surprised a production unit has that issue, just because they machine so well over there.

    I just let it be and it hasn't progressed past the initial scortch

    I'm a beta unit with a bunch of war scars too..keeps me and the brick bonded.

    Yep, I guess other possibility is the intake glass was off center and the drilled hole was fine. Either way, Im glad it was an easy fix. The scorching I had was getting worse with each hit. After sanding it looks fine now though, no sign it was ever charred.

    A small glass tube with a similar trumpeted end for the flame intake would be nice mod I'm thinking:sherlock:
