    Not sure what you were doing but the idea of the torch is to heat the scraper and not the gum.

    As Tony said, there is no substitute for hot water when removing gum.

    .
    I went back to the first video clip. Could swear that the operator was heating the gum. The torch is the same as I used. I have built a scraper that is foot powered. The idea is you place the scraper to the gum, freeze it and push the scraper ahead with your foot. Where else are you going to get the same amount of muscle power?
