I bought one and can't get it to do anything but barely light. There is no adjustment with it. I am torch-challenegd at this point so I don't know why. Any suggestions?

First, try opening the valve all the way when you light it, then throttle down to your working flame size.

If that doesn't work, try covering the air holes with aluminum foil, then after the torch lights, remove the foil.
