My Primus 1001, dated 1930, without the very attractive blue top!
Very nice indeed
Did you respray the glass cage and collar?
Looks in good condition, George.
A fine example!
@Lighthouse Good eyes! Yes, my son painted it for me about 15-20 years ago! I think I should have left it unpainted...
When I got this lantern it was a real "basket case", it had what appeared to be the original glass, but it was missing one of the air intake tubes and really needed a lot of TLC. Also found some others parts, NRV and lower part of the burner assembly. I fell in love with this lantern and looked for years before I finally found all the parts I needed and the restoration begun. Real "labour of love"!
@george She is in fine condition, lots of time effort and love lavished on her. Thank you for sharing.
@george that’s a very nice 1001 you have there, and in good condition too.
I can PM my address to you so you can send it to me ......
Seriously, thank you for sharing.
Has the hemp oil helped your arthritis?
@Matty It helped for while but then it just stopped... They put me on prednisone now. Will see what happens. They "think" it's possibly psoriatic arthritis but not sure.
That’s a good looking lamp George and well worth the labour of love! Thanks for sharing.
It will help. Steroid drugs are remarkable in how much they can help treat the conditions they are aimed at. The biggest problem is side effects. You should monitor yourself and report any side effects to your Dr. I'm sure you know that, I'm just speaking from experience.
I'm hoping the Prednisone is a huge success for you with only minor side effects.
@Matty Thanks, I'm hoping something works... Getting tired of setting around in pain all day.
