Since a long time I have been busy with old Zippo from 30´s, 40´s and 50´s years, and often those old Zippo had to be repaired or restored. This is why I have started my own, private "Hospital".
I try to bring old lighters back to the original condition. Therefore I have to make some parts by myself (for example: piston spring or 3 and 4 barrel hinges).
Here you have a look to a few repairs, I have made.
