    Hi again So I’m making great strides with the old blow lamp, it’s all sealed up and works to a certain extent.
    The issue is that the Leather cup has had it. I’ve popped in a Tilley x246 but it’s a smidge to small.
    Would you have any idea if you can get something slightly larger?
    Cheers
    Glen

    Tilley pump tubes are 16mm Dia. Most pressure lamps are 17mm and that includes Bialaddin/Vapalux, Petromax and Primus. Optimus are a tad larger at 17.5mm and most Coleman are 20mm. ::Neil::

    Awe thanks Neil, so if I get a Bialaddin etc, they should fit?

    Well I don't know but it is likely. 17mm seems to be a very common pump leather size and if a Tilley is too small then a Bialaddin or Petromax is perhaps correct. ::Neil::

    Still a work in progress, this is my pump tube diameter list. For when you may have a washer handy that's close enough.

    You're welcome. base-camp.co.uk is always worth a look, after all, they are our sponsor.

    Henry.

    Top tip Henry, i never knew that page was there and i thought i had seen every last bit of the Base camp website.
    I didn't know they were the CPL sponsor either, i thought that was Fettlebox.
