Hi fellas, ive always liked my Handi Kero Pet's, i have retored a few back into life / service. One of my biggest hurdle has been the generator needle, like a lot of parts for lanterns you can not get parts anymore so you have to either buy up clapped out ones hoping for good needle or bits or be resourseful and inventive. I have done both over the time. Starting off with the lanterns as a newbie things are a bit daunting, but i have worked on my fettling skills, some of my posts show how ive improved over time. Now i have successfully for the first time after a few trial and error have made a pricker needle that has become fully funtionable for a Handi kero-pet. Its been a labour of love, i can now replicate it and basically repair my clapped out Handi's. Im impressed with my fettling skills. To encourage other lanterneers who think they may not have the skills, i certainly did not.
