Hipolito H-502 Automatic with reflector. Stripped, serviced, clean and polished, runs well.
G'day @Alex Smith , a nice job cleaning up the lantern.
I haven't seen the reflector before but in the pictures it appears to go completely around the lantern and clip closed. Am I correct?
You are correct the reflector closes completely around the lantern. It clips shut. There are no markings on the reflector so can only assume that it is original to the lantern. Regards, Alex
That type of reflector used to be sold here in the U.K. as an after-market accessory. I got my "Reflector Protector" (a long time ago now) from Maidstone Angling but I'm sure they don't sell them anymore.
A fine example and the link below shows relevant information.
@JEFF JOHNSON and @Henry Plews Thank you both, very interesting to learn the history of the reflector. I had assumed that it was a original accessory.
Never seen that type of reflector before. Looks good and clever design.
Another one for the like to have list.
Thanks for the additional information on the reflector protector. Certainly something different.
Had it running up tonight:
Looking good @Alex Smith, and I do like that reflector.
Thanks @AussiePete . She is a good lamp, really pleased with her.
