    Yes, I'm wondering whether the ones on the bay are ex military or some other surplus...

    Are these the ones for sale at $Au149.99?

    Not a bad price for a BNIB lantern but shipping would probably kill the deal. Also, I'd have the dilemma - *to light or not to light; that is the question...

    No, I'm going to be happy with the one I already have, warts and all, *which, having been lit, lights on.

    * with apologies to William Shakespeare - right on, Bill...

    Also on sale from another trader for $129.95 with "free post" but I suspect that is Australia only - I've asked the dealer the question about postage to the UK in case you change your mind... 7 left...

    I've become rather fond of my new Austramax 3/300 which I bought on the bay of evil. It came with the German round globe, and a very big mantle supplied by Austramax. I will post a photo of it separately in the Gallery later in the week, but here is an action shot from last night - too much light for my phone to cope!

    ... and here is my older one up and running in my shed - the only thing I did was clean out the fount and put a new O-ring in the pump. I had it burning at a party on Saturday ans it went for 6 hours without missing a beat.

    I will now get some good photos of both my Austramax and get them post them here in the Reference Gallery.
