Thorens filling station

Post by Self Starting »

When making some use of the petrol lighters, and anyway for the beauty of the piece, at a certain point adding a filling station to the collection makes sense and indeed has some serious appeal.

I was lucky enough some 15 years ago as to find a Thorens store desk filling station with pump.

It was complete, but needed some work as it was slightly leaking from the bottom soldering, as probably the base had been strained, plus other minor issues with the filling pipe and cap.

Repair fully successful, and the pump does work.

It has just those dings near the pipe, but that doesn't detract much from it.

Thanks for pointing to the existing thread. I looked for it before opening this one, and I guess I missed it out because it was in the "market" section and not in the "historic" one. Or I didn"t use the right keywords...
