    Arrived, cleaned and fixed. A stubborn NRV finally gave in and pressure was obtained. Nice looking isnt she? Have to dismantle the vapourizer to se if she has a bottom-valve, as there is a small leak through the jet in closed position.

    Looks to be in very nice condition and working well.

    There is no valve in these lanterns and the cleaning needle is only that and not for closing off the flow. They are designed to only have pressure in the tank when they are running.

    Getting an 1082 HV is no problem. Getting one of these from the 50`s however, is a different issue. Cheap - Depends on Your preferences. I can get used, complete, but not refurbished lamps at the eq of USD 87. At Your end there will be the usual p&p, tax&customs fees. PM me if you are interested and I can guide you to various Sources in Norway.

    I have not succeeded in finding a copy of the operating manual for this lamp. Anyone that has a link?
