Whatever is needed to put the piece back into operating and as good as can be expected cosmetic condition- I have repaired and restored all types of cigarette boxes, cases, ashtrays, mechanical and figural cigarette dispensers and whatever else has come my way from my own collecting and from other collectors related to tobacco. It costs you nothing to send me an email- with a small format digital photo if you have one- (I’m on dial up!) – and I will advise.
This is a hobby for me- but my passion is in seeing these pieces making fire as they should. If you share that passion you should visit the OTLS and PLPG websites and learn more about the world of collecting lighters of all types. And most of all have fun with them!
