This sale is for a nice vintage blowtorch, manufactured by the George W. Diener manufacturing company. This is a quart size blowtorch. The top of the tank is embossed, "TORRID" / M'F'D BY GEO. W. DIENER M'F'G CO.. CHICAGO". The pressurization pump is located on the handle of the blowtorch. The top of the pump, which is circular, is embossed, "GEO. W. DIENER MFG. CO. / CHICAGO.U.S.A. // TORRID / No.09 / TORCH". The handle moves up and down. The control valve knob to the burner does turn. The tank and handle are brass, the priming cup looks like cast iron, and the burner is probably bronze. The turn screw to the base does not turn, but is in nice condition, with no evidence of tool marks. No evidence of oxidation on the brass, and no dents either. A very nice blowtorch.
NOTE: I should have some photos available by tomorrow.
