    Hi all,

    Exemple of an Optimus N°:200, i think of the mid 30s with the original glass.
    After the technical inspection and cleaning, it makes its way with an Optimus N°: 2730 - 200 cp mantle and fresh kerosene.
    I bought it in Sweden four years ago.
    Thank you for watching.

    Regards,
    Titoo.

    Hi Tony,

    It is fantastic to see this lamp in original condition function as the first day.
    The construction is solidly made, it still gives the best.
    I love old fiber control wheel.

    Regards,
    Titoo.

    Very nice original lantern.

    That fits with my estimation of the variations of the Optimus 200.

    Hello
    Very nice maintenance/restoration job!
    I have had for a long time a Petromax optimus 200 which used to work when I was young (i.e. 30-40 years ago!). However nowadays, the seals and rubber based parts are no longer sealing, the pump is inefficient etc. I wish to restore it to its former condition but am not sure where to find adequate spare parts. Seeing the nice job you have made with a similar lamp I was wondering whether you (or anybody else) coudl provide me with useful hints on to how to find them?
    Many thanks in advance

    I'm sure Petromax / Optimus seals will be available from The FettleBox - click on the link at the top right of this page. If he doesn't have them, Ross will make them up for you but I'm pretty certain these will be off-the-shelf sizes. Hope that helps and welcome to the site... :) :thumbup:
