    Hello all here is one of my Kayen table lamps in action this is the one I use in the shed.

    I've had some trouble with the vaporiser, this is the third one that I've changed over the other two had enlarged holes, I did try the tea spoon with a hammer trick but to no succes, but as they say third time lucky.

    This lamp has a reproduction Tilley shade on her, as I wanted to see how the shade would look while working, also to defuse the light and by how much? Could I now look directly at the light? Would I still get a good amount of light?
    And the answer was yes to all so I'm very happy with the out come of the shade, I will leave this shade on permanently.
    Now for the photos.

    I have a Kayen table lamp very much like yours and fitted with a similar repo shade. Give a beautiful soft white light quite bright enough to illuminate a room and excellent for reading or similar tasks.

    Very easy to light and reliable. Obviously these kero pressure lamps were built to be easy for a householder to use on a daily basisi.

    She looks good @Buggerlugs.
    I too have a similar repo shade.
    Enjoy
