You might consider the BT-100 torch from "Solder-It Company" in
It has push button ignition (no matches in the wind!) and is easy to
use. They also sell silver bearing solder paste (SP-7) in a syringe
that melts at a lower temp than regular solder and is easy to use.

This might sound like an ad, but I have no connection with the co. I
just saw a demo of the torch at the Arlington, TX Hamcom last weekend
and bought one for myself. Its really neat!
