Picked up this little pint sized torch the other day...
Its an "Auto" style Blowtorch made by the P. Wall Manufacturing Company. Blowtorches of this general flattened shape were called auto torches because they were made to fit more easily into an automotive toolbox. The tank is steel and the burner is cast iron - as opposed to the brass and bronze components found on ealier torches. She's missing the original control knob. Looks like someone soldered a little metal arm in place to do the job instead.
Not much left of the old label:
The Wall company eventually merged with the Lenk company (who also made small blowtorches). They still make small torches today, although they are of the less dangerous propane/butane variety.
Here she is after some time in my shop:
I don't think the plumbing for this old girl is original, and I don't think she would work as is. Most likely someone started to repair her years ago and gave up the effort before finishing the job. I replaced the makeshift control knob with a small knob/needle from the parts bin. The label is a 5 minute photoshop effort that contains most of the elements of the original. I'll probably refine the label design a bit and replace it at some point.
