Safety Lamps Page 2
brilliant thanks. Sounds like a plan. I will upload some photos later but maybe we should start a new thread for this, as it may attract further replies and/or comments from others. By the way I’ve been naughty and also picked up an original pork pie short handle for the collection....
@Alex74 picking up a short handle porkie is quite a find. Your acquisition just goes to show that “naughty and nice” do go together
Thanks Pete. The plan is to fettle 3 lamps during the Xmas break, as I am not flying back to Italy this year. Lots of photos will follow.
I have two pork pie Tilleys with short handles. They're both great runners but you can't carry them very far without burning the hell out of your hand! That's probably why Tilley lengthened the handle on the later pork pies.
I’m looking forward to feel the pain on the hand then...part of the vintage experience perhaps? ...let the old lamp burn a hole in your hand....
Alex, just wear a good, heavy asbestos glove and you will be just fine! lol
