Are there best results brands to look for?
Assume high wattage is important, but not sure what wattage is acceptable.
Getting closer to ending all the dumb questions. Catalina 22 should be Gulf Worthy, soon.

I had a cutter with a butane lighter as the source of heat. I found it useless. The blade needs to be very hot.
