    Hi! Thanks for letting me in. I just found this beautiful lamp who needs lite love. I didn't found so much information about the lamp. It has a "w" on the bottom. The pump is not complete, in the rest i hope that it is complete. The glass i think it is original.

    I need to search the forum fir cleaning tips and how do you remove the bumps? This has only on top (i hope that is gonna be easy to fix) and few very little on the reservoir (those i think i vill not remove). Some pictures are coming. I didn't fired it, but soon :)
    Have a great day!

    Welcome Frank.
    You have a nice piece there. Looks to be in decently good shape. It has a fuel level indicator too. I like the pre-heater.
    The Radius 106 has all the basic features of the early(1930s) Petromax 828 in addition to some difference on the fuel cap, preheater design and the level indicator. Nothing less in terms of quality. I don't have one but from the pictures alone, the metalwork details tell it all.

    An excellent find! I like the pressure gauge on the preheat torch. The pump plunger seems to be the Petromax design rather than the Primus/Radius design one would expect.
