Saw it demo'd at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale last year and was really impressed. He brazed 2 pieces of 20-22 gauge sheet metal with regular TIG rod and didn't warp at all with really nice beads; wouldn't need much grinding at all.
Now he was a professional and I haven't brazed in years, but again, it was impressive.
these have been around for years, dillon/ henrob/ cobra are a few names. i was given one ages ago and for hammerwelding thin sheetmetal they are ok but i prefer using a standard long handpiece with a #6 tip which uses about the same amount of gas. this style puts your hand closer to the heat & when doing long welds your hand gets too hot. for the price of it you can buy a couple of plasma cutters which will cut way better with less heat.
