    I know this is a torch used by the old-school plumbers, but that's about all I know about it. With the inclusion of the pump on the fuel tank I presume this item uses naphtha gas like the Colman lanterns but I could be wrong. Perhaps someone could comment and fill in the many blanks I have for this torch.

    I just really liked the brass and the wicked cool bad-a** look of this thing, so I took in a partial trade for a bunch of computer stuff.

      Thanks for the information and the link. It looks like a LOT of reading on that webpage but will make for some good education on a blustery rainy day sometime in the future!

      I did read just enough for now to learn never to try and fire these things up!
