Re: R.K. Imperator mit Sicherung

Here is a new purchase from U.K. eBay. I believe it is the tall RK rebranded for the English market as the Orlik '3-1/2 Weeks'. It has a lot of amateur personalizations scratched into the finish and is hand-marked '1913' in three places. ++++++ Hier ist ein Neukauf bei eBay in Großbritannien. Ich gl...

Hi Seb. Looking at the shape of your snuffer, it looks like your lighter may come from the same manufacturer who produced these Clifton models.

While relaxing and doing some housework yesterday, I had an inspiration. Even though the tab broke on the original clutch, there was still a nub remaining.

I am very interested in the genealogy of the Bernhardt family.

Re: Apollo by RAMLighter

After talking to Russ at Ronsonrepair.com about the 'Apollo', I decided to go ahead and take it apart. Before I did this, Russ warned me he did not have spare parts for these lighters and probably cannot fix the problem. He has not worked on an Apollo before but told me the likely problems to look f...
