    @tim newcombe
    G'day Tim, and welcome to CPL
    It's good to teach fettling skills to Antony whilst he is young and I'm sure he enjoys the time you two spend together.

    Hi Tim and Antony. Welcome to the forum. Having a good hand at gas/electric soldering and welding sure helps in lanterns and stoves restoration and repair work.
    All these stuffs at the age of 9? Well, wow!...that's really uncommon.:shock:

    I have been brought up helping dad building kit car and keeping old cars on the road and rebuilding boats I'm so glad I'm a 80s child as there was no Xbox etc, its the reason both my children spend time with me in the shed i let him use all tools under supervision except an angle grinder if i can teach them both to fix things catch things hunt and grow i think there be all right when im 6ft under lol. So many people let schools educate the kids but myself and wife are strong believers education starts at home

    One of the lamps we have both just done, this one belonged to a neighbor who passed away so we striped the poor paint and polished it up

    @tim newcombe

    This is a great introduction post.
    It's good to see the kids learning skills that will serve them well in the future. :thumbup:

    The Tilley lantern has cleaned up nicely but the restoration of the boat is excellent. :clap:

    Looks like you have a very nice family. :)

    Welcome @tim newcombe from Queensland Australia.
    You are bringing your children up learning a lot of life skills, well done. I’m an avid shooter, as is my lady and all of my grownup kids.
    I see that the lampie bug is about to bite you, resistance is useless, you now have to get more lamps and let them breed.
    I’m looking forward to seeing your future posts.
    Cheers
    Pete
