    Good day everyone,

    I hope someone here may be able to assist in identifying this lamp. It appears to be an early lamp, and the best I can describe it as some type of hybrid between Primus and 'Petromax' styles. The lamp was sound in Spain. There are no visible stampings/markings that appear in the photos of the lamp that the vendor provided. Many thanks in advance.
    Paul

    Hello @Michel

    Thank you for your quick reply. Good eye! Referring to the one CIMSA example in the reference library, you may very well be correct, as the pump and filler cap do look very similar.

    Hopefully someone may have some paper work to identify it further.

    That's a very nice clean lines design.

    Yes, with you tied to the other end of the rope.

    Matty, then be sure to choose a good knot. [-o<

    I resent both those remarks as they imply I can't tie a knot. I'm a fisherman from way back and have only ever lost half a dozen anchors. Fair enough the last anchor I tossed in fell off as I tossed it but anyone can make a mistake.

    @Matty, so that’s what they mean when they tell me to get knotted ....... they don’t want me to loose my anchor, how considerate of them. :lol:
    Cheers

    Pete,

    Yes, perhaps that is their endeavour, to keep your anchor safe :)

    I suspect you probably guessed it: I suppose it is time that I point out that both Paul (@Pchamp ) and Larry (@coleman54 ) are good mates of mine. Perhaps not Paul anymore after my boat anchor comment - we'll have to wait and see [-o<

    @Matty my sincere apologies, I had no idea that you were so challenged with making knots. Did you by chance lose the half dozen anchors all on the same day?

    @coleman54 Larry, perhaps we should create a tutorial for poor old Matt on how to tie a mantel to a lamp.....:-k

    @Pchamp Paul, the challenge is in his type of fishing experience I think, images I’ve seen of him not having a tied knot for the bait hook, he was wade fishing evidently for piranha in short shorts with beer in hand and smile on his face.
    (Please don’t try to picture that at home)

    @coleman54 Larry, I recall seeing that sad photo of him in the piranha infested waters. Fishing you say? I thought the poor sod was looking for his anchor

    @Pchamp Paul, if that’s the case maybe he was multitasking ? You know he probably was looking to tie one on.
    Maybe an anchor too ?
    If he could still find one.

    No, my record for one day is two. Both times I had to cut the anchor line because my knot didn't fail. ;)

    I was using a sand anchor but fishing over some rocks. Both times the anchor got caught in the rocks and would not release. Why use sand anchors over rocks? That is all I had onboard. 90% of the time a sand anchor was all I needed.

    Pirahna's would be the least of my worries. The constant low water alarms from my sounder in 5 or 10 meters of water remind me that sharks are ever present. In fact, my son-in-law caught a nice shark from my front lawn over Christmas.

    @WimVe
    The first photo is of me fishing at mid tide about 20 metres in front of my lawn. It is a rocky high spot. The second photo highlights my position. On a normal full tide the water would cover my legs if I was game enough to stay there. The fishing is normally pretty good but best in winter. In the summer, a band of weed grows, perhaps 30 meters in front of where I am standing. It can be a pain. The mangrove tree to my right has grown quite considerably since its size in the 2nd photo.

    As the tide comes in I can fish from my front lawn. King tides will have the water on my front lawn as far up as the closest tree in the third photo.

    The land mass you can see in the distance is North Stradbroke Island.

    @Pchamp Consider your topic officially hijacked.

    As long as you stay out of the water, it's a great place to live.

    I should have got some photos from a couple of weeks ago. We had 110mm of rain in 30 minutes. That's nearly 4 1/2". I can tell you, that was some rain storm. The lawn that you can see in these photos was all under water.
