The reason I use it is, that I am worried about getting the beam into my piggies eyes and hurting them. A good Beam Torch is a pocket Mag-Light which is internationally available, and if you twist the lens at the top, it will narrow the beam. If you feel that that is still too wide and gets in their eyes, then merely cover the lens with a peice of card and sticky tape in place, leaving a tiny gap for the light to get through. A torch is the general term, and the beam part of it is referred to the narrow focused beam.
Hope that clears my name from blow-torching piggies !!! ;o)
Peace, Love, and Happiness, Always
