basically provides bulk steam, with no variation, to the site
required and it is then up to the user to provide the necessary fine
adjustments. It is possible to adapt the standard nozzle to your

(4 inches). It only splutters if water is allowed to collect in the

The Jiffy Steamer is available from:
