Hi and welcome to the forum!
Hi Ben and welcome to the forum. You’ve got all the answers above, enjoy the fettle!

Looks toasty! Cats? They’re all heat thieves!

Looking good, well fettled!
Looks great, wouldn’t expect anything less from you guys.... you’re going to need a bigger shed!
Hi and welcome along. There are some good how to videos on YouTube by our very own Broadlander (aka Jeremy). Well worth a watch!
Back to doing its job! Nothing like that first pop into life....
Very nice! I have a similar lantern though not working as yet, my memory has let me down on where I ‘hid’ the new nrv and seals!
