@Gareth Shepherd looks good mate, is the 300X from the pair we bought?
Both are working well.
Yes I know it not a pressure lamp, but I picked these up at the weekend, military air raid lamps, I believe, came with the original box marked...
Tilley X246A, you will be able to date it with the numbers underneath the tank.
This is one of the best looking lanterns I’ve found in a while so grab a bargain.
To be far it’s a bitza and some poor sod is...
@Gareth Shepherd it looks great, at last working well. Probably one of my favourite lamps and really reliable.:D/
Very nice, I love the 300X
@Johnny19 nice, I do like the M1 lamp.
Wow very nice. An early example as well.
I have been lucky enough to recently purchase this Chrome Vapalux 320, it came complete with box, instructions, looks like it has never been lit....
Forget the Donut lamp, there’s a nicely restored Vapalux 300 and equally nice unrestored Vapalux 300...:mrgreen:
That lamp would have originally been painted cream I think, could it have been a factory repair, i.e originally underneath the paint. Solder or...
It looks like a patch that had been put on the tank maybe in an attempt to repair some damage. Does it scrape off?
Looks like the hood is off an earlier Vapalux 300.
Very nice lamp...:D/
The hood looks really good, probably not had a lot of use.
Ok, yes I’ll keep onto the blue top. It looks like was maroon originally.
X246, X246A and X246B control cocks.
The control cock shown that’s fits the X246 came off a chrome version.
