    Thanks to @Mackburner - I know now that this is a Kerosafe - no pricker= made between 1915-1920.
    Pics are from my shed during first take-off.
    The handle is Cast Iron and heavy.
    I use a standard Coleman pump, which fits fine.

    It had stress cracks which I sealed - As per advice from Neil/Mackburner I removed some ugly brown asbestos from inside the Generator and replaced it with some very fine brass mesh rolled up inside the Generator.
    Mantles are two old Coleman 21 Silklites.
