I remember my Dad using one of these years ago when I was a kid.
Exactly as you say, pump it up, let some gas into the trough, light it and when the barrel is hot turn on the gas again and you will have a nice blue flame coming out of the "blowtorch". Just think of how many of these were used "back in the day" with nary a single mishap!
I worked in a prison where one of the inmates smuggled one of the copper soldering irons out of one of the shops and used it to stab another inmate. He took off the wooden handle, sharpened that end and stuck it into the other guy's back.
The copper end was now the handle with lots of weight to propel the "shiv"!
I'll never forget seeing that copper soldering iron sticking out of the inmate's back!
Interestingly, The victim survived with little injury as the weapon missed anything vital.
