It's very similar to the Meco Midget torch that is very popular. It was marketed as a jewelers torch. I think it was a predecessor to the Smith Little Torch and was discontinued. A quick google search for tips didn't turn up anything so it looks like tips would be hard to find.
It is very similar to the Meco and the tips attach the same way. Perhaps they would fit. The person that would know would be Kent White. (crystallographic)
I would contact him through a PM here or through his website.

I machined a simple adapter to use the Meco tips. Works well.

My torch has a 1/4" tube. Not sure the previous thread, but as I recall it was not standard. So, I cut it off and silver brazed the adaptor. If you are up for that, I can send an adapter.

Hi Bill,
That is a cool adapter. Great that you can help solve this torch problem because I have found no answers at all for this chap. :):)
