    I used to get them at local auctions, but the last auction room closed a few years ago, but sometimes a lamp or two will come my way, the word gets around in a small place.

    It's currently very quiet which is why I fettled the ones which are shown in this topic.

    Ahh ok,

    auction houses. I have never explored that opportunity. Perhaps another source of raw fettling material down here too. I’ll look into it!

    That's a good idea, scrapyards and recycling centres may also be worth checking out.

    I love the PL and the R1 as well, you have done a wonderful job, nothing like bringing a Tilley lamp back to life.
