    "use acupuncture needle" That is a Great Idea! Those needles have to be strong, well made and have precise dimensions. I think a trip to China Town is in my near future. And a super nice lantern as well. thanks!

    Hi

    Wish you are good.

    I just have chance to have this Sirius lantern. I was going to clean it but the problem is I don't know how to separate the main part which are the burner and the generator.

    I tried many different way but still can't separate the parts, I am not sure it is too tight... as I don't have the digram and the part list so not sure which parts can be separated.

    Could you please guide me to the good way to separate the parts in order I can clean the lantern.

    Thanks

    Hi wwhcfy.

    Check this out. I answered the same question you made there. Atleast as good as I could from memory.
