    I bought this from auction a few weeks back, doesn't look to have had much use as the hood is fantastic.

    Nice looking example!

    How do you preheat this model by the way? Do you pull up the glass or something perhaps? I have only seen the newer models being preheated but dont know how to light these older ones.

    Hi Kristian, have a look at my 315 [url=http://0flo.com/index.php?threads/4767 you can see the preheater a bit more. The cup is filled with meths and the push up inside the glass with the attached rod and then the little cut out sits around the bottom of the vaporiser whilst it warms up.

    Hum, your 315 has a more logical placement of the preheater cup. What makes me wonder about this 320 is that the cup is inside the glass and unreachable from the outside if you dont get to remove the glass somehow? Lamps are indeed fascinating, even the Tilley X246 has its own way of preheating which is pretty cool. So much to learn about each different lamp.

    Hello Kristian, if you look closely at both of those meths cups then you will see that they are both fitted with a lifter, Jeff.

    Yes as Jeff says they are both fitted with lifters. The one on the 315 is in the down position for filling and the one on the 320 is in the up position for heating.
