    I was recently gifted this 930 in the condition on the left. It cleaned up nicely and I just had to make a wire handle to complete the restoration. A lovely lamp for the cost of a globe.

    Thanks for the welcome Jeremy. The Optimus was accompanied by a Coleman Peak 1 and a Coleman 400a stove. So yes a good friend indeed.

    Hi Robert

    Yes, I saw that post too. Are you new to lamp and stove collecting or just new to the forum?

    Regards Jeremy

    Stoves definitely not, but lamps only the last couple of years. It would seem they have me gripped now though. Also bought my first pressure heater and yesterday a blow lamp. HELP!

    Theres a seller on Ebay UK Tony. Not an original but a decent repro. I was told there are some Coleman globes that can substitute.
