    Hi all
    here is my new Lilor. This lamp is on the 24/25 and 25/26 catalogue. Perhaps too modern style for the 20's ? only 2 years of production. This is a 300 gasoline candle power lamp (2 x 150)

    It has a shut-off valve and a cleaning needle. A device that screws onto the fresh air intake tube allows you to adjust the air / fuel ratio.

    I unfortunately do not have the original opaline, I cut a more modern opaline, but I think it should be higher.

    I have to wait for testing as there was a bit of rust in the bottom of the tank, I had to treat the bottom with epoxy

    That's pure Art Deco, the style of the 20s.
    Really beautiful:thumbup:

    HI all
    the resin has hardened enough, I did a try.
    No problem of ignition, these generator are intended to start with a match.
    On the other hand, the lamp tends to pulse, the light is not regular
    Due to the size of the axis of the needle, I do not think it is possible to put a brass canvas around
    Originally, were these Quicklite generators filled with asbestos?

    Nice work, Michel. :thumbup:

    If you can't fit a mesh coil in the vapouriser, can you fit a spring like coil (steel, copper or brass) to help control the pulsing?

    Ohohoh ](*,)
    it's hard to get old
    I did't realised I had not enough gasoline in the lamp
    The old lady alternately aspired air, then gasoline, then air ... etc hence the pulsation asthmatic [-(
    now, with the full, she purrs
