    I decided that this run down Kayen needed a face lift, as i like these Australian lamps.

    Me too, also the variety of colours, all we see in the U.K. is boring brown.

    Looking sweet and a great save! Australia must love the speckled look. Speckled blue Coleman 4A iron--exclusive to Australia and a standout amongst the rest of the Canadian 4A family.

    @MikeO ..Hi Mike, Wow! :thumbup:..Thanks for sharing :)

    Do the Colemans get as hot as the Tilley irons? :-k

    They get pretty hot although I've only had mine running long enough to see how they work on a couple of shirts. The charred handles I always see are probably from folks not lighting them correctly and getting fireballs.

    Dang, a speckled Coleman iron would like great beside Michael and Brian's Kayen!

    Mike.

    The final touch to an excellent lamp.
