Pressure lamps and stoves ..

Post by matt86 on Sun Apr 14 2013, 19:05

Hello all some of you may know i have been dabaling a bit with tilley lamps in the last year , had around 4 of them but since getting rather anoyed with the new parts you get i Branched out to another brand

Got 2 vapalux lamps now . Only got 4 lamps at the moment .

I find it intreasting and enjoy getting old lamps rebuilding them and getting them going again , Only recentlly started but will be looking out for more lamps to buy . wouldnt mind to get a primus stove or 2 as well . Have quite a few hanging basket brackets around the garden which will be hanging lamps from in the summer when have a bbq .







As you can see between the two Tilleys one on the left is working great , but other one is not . Has a new type vapourizer which for some reason does not work as well as the old ones . So thats something il have to fix .

Matt

Ps i know there quite a few lamp enthusiasts on this forum as well .

I think the word lamping sounds better ... example I'm going to lamp him or I'm going to tilley him, just not the same Laughing Laughing Laughing

Matt you'll need a new shed built for all your new bits n bobs, milking equipment, tilley lamps, petrol cans what's next or have I missed some? Laughing

Stu , i need another shed anyway for the bigger engines anyway ....

I have a mound of soil to move , so i think il rope my dad to give me a hand and once thats done i will have some space for another shed ... i think it will be 18 x 8 ish , plenty just to store engines in . That way my smaller brick shed can be used for milking bits pressure lamps , cans , water pumps etc .

Cheers Matt, I will take it to Abbey hill, may use it as a slow cooker for some steak and ale stew Smile

We used to get called the glow worms at Netley Marsh years ago, but we're going back to Wurzel times Very Happy Me and my Dad seemed to be the only ones who took them up to the beer tent and arena at night.

That's something different Andy, you just need to test it the a coat of black grate paint and it's sorted. Very Happy

I know this is slightly off topic but I've noticed that a few people are now selling the converted gas bottles into heaters (stoves) there selling for £49 on ebay.

Does your new lamp have the proper orange enamel top? I think I still have a pork pie base one at my dads place along with 3 or 4 four posters and a vaporlux. I only have 2 red 2 gold a floodlight and a chrome primus lamp down here (only! ha)
