How a Zippo was made in the 1950's. Apparently this was some kind of apprentice piece. I tried to clean the image up as best I could without damaging the actual appearance of the original image. The smaller pictures below the main image link to images that are set to an A4 print size.

I recently added a few video links to the advertising page, some of which relate to Zippo manufacturing. The best of which is a 19 minute tour of the Zippo plant showing the manufacture of the case, all the way from brass strips to finished article.
