    There were a few question about Claus' 1381 so I thought I'd post mine. It's got all the bells and whistles that could be ordered extra, so might be a good example.

    It is a 1381 from 1944 (AI 3) and has the optional level gauge as well as the optional pressure gauge. It is still configured for alcohol. So far I havn't tried it.

    The second last picture shows the air restrictor which is just a flat strip of metal across the air opening to the jet.

    Thanks Nils! Many and good pictures, just like we want.

    That was exactly what I wanted to see in my question regarding the air restrictor (In Claus topic).
    Yet another way to solve this.

    How does it perform?
    The alcohol lamps aren't always the easiest to get to work flawlessly.

    Edit: By the way I see that the "Recent Gallery Posts" to the far left seems to be out of order.
    Neither your lantern today, nor Claus the other day appear there.
    I'll alert Ross.

    Stunning Lamp Nils :lol:. How come they made my 1381 without a tank-meassurer. I feel cheated :?
    Sorry I didnt have time yet for showing Pictures of the jet/airtube. I have been very busy fixing another lamp.

    These were optional extras that you had to order specifically. Not everyone did.

    Christer, as I mentioned I have not had this lamp lit. It was one I just cleaned up and put away meaning to get back to it. Now that I have dug it out again and dusted it off I shold give it a go. Will be away for the weekend so hopefully next week. :)

    Can I ask you to take the messurements, widest diameter and the total hight of the green tophood, just the greenpiece and I will be a happy fellow-collector. I will try to spin it and enamel it.

    Well I measured a 981 but it is the same part. The diameter is 110.8mm which probably means the metal itself is 110. The height is difficult to measure without taking it apart, but I estimate it to about 36mm.

    I've got one such lamp (1381), but never used it :
    I'd like to know what mantle should I get for it ?

    (Btw, I've also one 391, and the same question : what mantle will fit for it?).

    (And sorry if I'm out of the forum rules, it's my first post).

    Both the 1381 and 391 will use the same size mantle. You should be looking for a 250cp mantle. There can be small differences between brands, but in general it shouldn't matter where it comes from.

    I would make sure the seals are in good order before using either lamp, as alcohol is very flammable. If in doubt, replace them.

    Btw, welcome to the forum. :)
