Well, with a small flame and 7psi regulated on both tanks, the flame isn't as hot as you'd think. Or at least it's hot, but the btu output i'd imagine isn't quite as high. With low pressure and a wide tip, the flame's low and it's not quite as concentrated as a smaller one, or at least that's my impression of it. Let me say as well that an assistant to keep constant pressure on the stud, while heating, till it breaks is basically a must because without it's pretty tough to balance the torch and pull/push on the wrench.
