    Hi all,

    Here is the HC 500 "firefly" hanging lamp (HC 500 hanging lamp on paper)
    Amish manufacture really well made stainless steel and brass.
    Tank capacity: two liters.
    All personal possibilities to fit a shade.

    I test the adaptation for runing with alcohol.
    Fillers cap safety valve and Amish brass hand pump.

    Thank for sharing.

    Regards,
    Titoo

    Not NOS but currently manufactured in Pennsylvania by an Amish Lighting company HD Lanterns. I believe this lamp began production at the end of 2017 or beginning 2018. They can be ordered directly from HD Lanterns, they ship UPS in America or from a seller on ebay. Directly from HD is the cheaper cost. The generators are made by HD themselves and can be gas or kerosene , gens cost about $10.
