Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 377

Welcome to The Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 377! Our featured interview tonight is with Jim Paul & David Pitts. They are experts at repairing and restoring Vintage Dunhill Rollagas Lighters. A new one will set you back anywhere from $700 – $1,600, but refurbished ones can be had from $100 – $200 for the most part. They have a Facebook Group for discussions of Dunhill Rollagas Lighters, and a Facebook Page with links for purchases. In the Pipe Parts segment, we have a perfect tie-in with our holiday gift guide.

  • Really enjoyed the show- I learned a lot and your guests seem like real craftsmen. One question- is there a preferred type of butane that they recommend to use in these expensive lighters? I have seen triple refined, quadruple refined, and “premium” butane. Does it make a difference?

  • This was a really good show! Your guests, Jim Paul really acquitted themselves during the Q&A. Jim Paul almost floored me when he said “he remembered when the war ended”. I figure the guy must be 79 years old. I know the piping community contains a lot of Codgers, but that’s up in years to be still working. I don’t think I have ever seen an actual Dunhill Rollagas lighter. And they got through the “The Fast Five” in pretty good shape.
    The music was pretty enjoyable.
