Torch Striker Made Using Ignitor From Old Torpedo-Style Space Heater
I removed the ignitor and transformer from the heater as a one-piece unit and placed the transformer inside an electrical box. I ran the unitís wiring out through connectors to the ignitor, which I bolted to the outside of the box. I also mounted a push button on top of the box.
