  • Old torch

    Does anyone know how old this torch is? I got it from my dad a while ago who brought it from an old man who retired from worked for a guy that designed and built formula one racing cars. Here is what it says on a metal tag which looks like is held in place on the bottom of the handle with brads or tiny rivets.
    UND LAB.,INC. INSPECTED
    OXY-ACETYLENE BLOWPIPE
    PUROX
    00
    MADE IN USA
    There's an identification number next to the knobs:
    W4113131 FM
    The FM looks like it is separate from the number.
    If anyone has any info on it or other torches similar to it let me know if you could

        torch

        Obviously quite old because of the barb type fittings. Purox os now part of Esab, so probably not a lot of info available, but you might try them.

          I realize that john12865 I know it isn't worth much more than a pack of gum. I just like the old stuff. I might hang it on the wall next to the propeller.
