    Are Propane blow torches common here.

    Before I start a forlorn quest to try and buy one. I've not noticed them here in local hardware stores. I need to heat up a screw held in with Loctite so I can remove it. My propane soldering iron doesn't have enough grunt

    I bought mine off Ebay.
    Gas, usually sold in a 3 pack, can be bought in Big C, Macro, Tesco, Homepro etc.

    I have the T shirt:

    "Describe the worst blow you ever had? Fantastic"

    That being said I don't wear the shirt often:-)

    I had one but the bugger near set me alight. Flames started shooting out from the sides as the tourch didn't seal properly. Not great when it happens indoors as you go charging for the nearest exit with it in hand.

    What about drilling the screw out or..... if you have a welder, weld a nut onto the stub and the heat through that should loosen it up
