G Money: the patina is part of the charm of a brass zippo. you really shouldnt have
to polish it, especially often. go for a chrome one if you want luster.
brass zippos can also get a little smell to them as they tarnish and it
gets on your hands.. not major its just a weird metalic smell.
ddddddiiiiiiiieeeeee: Cool vid man, love zippos.
seasonedtoker: once the brass gets passivated by patina, you can polish it every day and
it won't stay shiny for a day. I polish mine briefly on a wire wheel every
once and then just to clean the pits. other than that just costs you time.
I once even got it to a perfect shine with a polishing compound but again,
after a day in my pocket the patina came out again
Stephen Powers: Rise against :D
anotheraccount420: i like your accent
TheForgottenWolf: @JacobRTweedy No, Keep the music on bro, Because of you I found another
GODLY song to listen to while raping noobs at halo reach.
Squee00: Interesting. I'm gonna clean up mine using this method. Also your accent
22869334: i think i have the same zippo
binolar: i've try both of them and i've found that silvo had a longer clear finish.
the brasso was awesome the first day but then fade back to old crap.... I
prefer silvo for everyday use, but if I park this brass zippo for a while,
I use brasso coz it protect the brass
binolar: thanks a lot dude! I always use zippos, they look awesome, i like the style
of theses lighters
iloveiphone93: kl cheers i was so pissed when i found out my brass zippo got in tha state
after i onli had it for like 6 months
GoFigureSkate1: @SupermanReckz I also read somewhere that if you send in the whole lighter
(or maybe just the case if the rest is ok) that they will still clean it up
for you even though they're not supposed to according to their official
policy. But I have no idea if that's true or not as I've never had to send
one in. Although I may have to soon cause I kinda screwed up the hinge on
mine somehow lol. It closes with a gap near the hinge and just doesn't
quite line up flush...
GoFigureSkate1: @47guss It will just get dull and look its age... You can clean it as often
as you like. Whether or not you clean the case will not affect its
operation. It just depends on how you personally prefer it to look, some
people like the aged, well-used look, others like to keep the brand new
shine... What I do is leave the top and bottom alone and polish all the
sides, so it's shiny and new looking but you can still tell its age from
the top and bottom.
Cheung Shum: i have a fully brass zippo and it stopped working. i changed the flint wick
and when i out fluid in it it works for a lil while then it stops. Can you
help me out on how to make it back to normal? Thanks
jacob harris: i like maas metal polish cuz it works better...and protects for a longer
79mystique79: silvo is for silver and brasso for brass. i have them both but dunno the
difference except the color and smell. I polish my brass zippo with brasso,
but once you touched it and lay it down it will oxidate again. i have a
zippo venetian XII (1996)
Mississippi1313: thanks! i have a brass 1937 and i couldn't some stains out. until i watched
umpus: So use Silvo and polish the hell out of it. Okay.
GoFigureSkate1: @SupermanReckz Send it in to Zippo (address is on the bottom of your
lighter) and they will fix it up for free and send it back to you brand new
(except for the case, they don't replace the case just fix the hinge and
ddddddiiiiiiiieeeeee: They have history in themselves, the last zippo I bought on my birthday was
1941 brass replica, it s awesome.
Eric C: hey im gettin a brass zippo... do u HAVE to clean it? like what will happen
if u dont.. and how often do i clean it.
GoFigureSkate1: A word of warning from experience: DO NOT try to clean the insert with
Brasso or any other solvent if you want to keep it's brass color! As I've
discovered, the insert is not actually solid brass, but is instead
electroplated to have a thin brass coating. Brasso WILL remove that,
leaving it silver colored. It will never regain brass color after that...
If you DO clean it, use VERY LITTLE and do it very briefly and softly, then
clean it with rubbing alcohol to remove any trace of Brasso.
