  2. im going to steal your phophore bronze shim slides..
  3. they are really nice..........the more weird the antler is the better i like it ....
  4. i think i have a spare chimney for that alladin..............if you ever need it give me a shout..............
  5. that is a beast of a knife..........it looks in good condition as well.......nice one.. i wonder if you could trace the name to a person on the war records ???
  6. i bet they thro a bit of light..................are they still in working order ?
  7. ooohhh they are nice....................
  8. cheers for that..............to be quite honest it works and throws a nice ammont of light......far more so than a candle...............it is 3/4 's full of parafeen and sits on the desk and no longer smells...but is always ready to be lit ....as we have several power cuts here from time to time...... i have been looking at some of the large drawing room oil lamps on the net ...some of them with glass shades.....i bet they threw some light as well...
  9. put the wick back in and trim it ......polish it up ....clean the chimney and light it up ....... jobs a gooden.........
  10. heat up the handle and melt it away from the body..............clean.....(it must be clean)...and re-solder......
  11. what about a bottle of Justeni and a packet of pork scratchings.......that was a good night out on a park bench...
  12. next thing was to .....give it a good old clean up and check what needs fixing.....the burner was ok and i had the wick out and washed and flattered it and trimmed it ...then a look at the body ...and as you can see ...where the handle joind the body ...the solder is cracked............
  13. they look reqally nice................i re-built a HY 77 a while ago..........not to that standard tho........mine was a barn find and has alot of the blueing missing / worn off...and had a very very strange mod on it......i will put some pics up of it some time... but that pair you have are really smart..........troulble with the HW's you need a wheelbarrow to cart them around ..
  14. in the back of the shed .......i have this old diddy parafeen lamp.......dont get used in the house as it has a couple of splits where the handle joind the body....so it does stink on parafeen..........so i had a bit of time on my hands about 3 weeks ago...and decieded to take it apart and clean it ..take the dents out and mend the holes...cause i rekon it is a pretty little thing and should be bought back into use... will post a few more pics of progress later..............
  15. i have a very low alchohol tolerance...........i can get slap faced on a wine gum and a glass of water.............also i sober very quickly.........i have awesome kidneys.. (and a childish sense of fun.......im not ready to grow up yet )
