    It took some fettling to get this one going again. It was completely clogged up but with some patience, elbow grease, parts from the forum sponsor and - last but not least - some great advice from the nice people here the lamp is working again.
    Unbelievably bright and fun because of the unusual preheater lever. Also pimped an old lamp box to make it a nice set.
