Common Zippo Problems __EXCLUSIVE__

Download :::

Check the flame to diagnose any problems with your lighter first. Is the flame turned up too high or too low When you ignite the lighter, a consistent flame should emerge. If the flame shoots out in on-and-off spurts, the fuel tank could be empty or full of air, which you have to bleed from the tank before you can refill your lighter. Adjust the dial that controls the flame height up and down to see that the flame responds.

George G. Blaisdell invented the Zippo lighter in 1932, and got his idea after discovering a large and bulky Austrian made pocket lighter. Blaisdell was an oil engineer who saw a audience for a good looking lighter that would function even in windy conditions. He produced the first Zippo lighter in Bradford, Pennsylvania.he called it the ZIPPO because he liked the sound of the word "ZIPPER"Zippos are classified as windproof lighters, and are are able to remain lighted in almost any wind situation. They were common in the United States armed forces, particularly in the second world war standard silver Zippo a military zippo lighter was standard gear for all men in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. During that period, all Zippo lighters produced went to the Allied war effort. In fact, during the conflict, since brass was needed for weapon systems, the interiors of zippos were primarily stainless steel. Following the war, Zippo reverted to the traditional brass design.Additionally, Zippo lighters are known for the lifetime guaranty they carry: if a Zippo breaks down, no matter how old, the company will replace or repair the lighter for free.Approx. 200,000 Zippo lighters were owned by U.S. military personnel in the Vietnam War. In one instance, a Zippo lighter transported in a shirt pocket blocked a bullet from going in a soldiers body.these are the facts i have read from various websites. now while i did copy and paste,I ALSO READ THEM AS THOUROUGHLY(spelling) as possible.I have confirmed their accuracy,but feel free to comment otherwise.

what i like about zippo lighters:1.the reliability2.they are refillable3.they can use any type of lightr fluid,although zippo brand is recommened by zippo4.they are rewickable5.they are reflintable6.cost effective(inexpensive)for most models7.they last forever7a.i have seen many models that were made in 1932,and they still work!!!!!!!what i don't like:1.the fact that zippo(this is more directed at the company) only suggest zippo brand fluid,while really any fluid can work just as much.this often confuses new buyers,and causes them to be picky about what type they buyPLEASE note:there is only one thing i don't like,and now you can avoid that problem.

i will list below some do's and some dont's.1.ripping off flint from disposable lighters.......DObut please note that you shoud have to cut it to zippo length flint pieces(i can usually get three pieces from one bic)2.using alternative fuel........DON'Tlet me explain.i mean only use lighter fluid,.and,in an emergency,axe.please look at my other instructable for further explanation -flame-with-a-zippo/3.buying zippos from'Tthey grossly overprice thier items.4.buying zippos from grossly UNDER priced and sell genuine zippos.(my zippo that is on order right now with 10 flints and 1 wick was the same price as just the zippo on the zippo site.) also shipping was 3 dollars less

and now because i promised a complete guide to zippos,the basics.&apos&apos&aposreflinting&apos&apos&apos gently pull on the chimney and the insert should come out pretty easily.there is a screw in the bottom of the insert.take it will shoot out of the tube it is placed in,so keep a tight hold on it.once the screw is out,you will notice that the screw is attached to the spring and a small brionze piec at the supposed to be that way the bronze piece is NOT the flint,dont pull on it.the flint will come out after the small piece,or if you were completely out of flint,nothing
