Typical Japanese zazhigalochnoe creativity 1960s - a huge table in the form of gasoline lighter gas station (Zippo next set to scale).

    Two not quite normal issue :)
    1) How to fill this miracle
    2) does not imply whether petrol
    I understand made on the principle of eternal matches, but there it is twisted, and here as?

    Wahler, tucked it underneath (but I have not experienced for flowability).

    Made not on the basis of eternal match, no. On a string at the end of a conventional wick, tuck it into the top hole and strike sharply wheel, it lights up.
