    Still missing a needle and using a cheap mantle for testing but a very pleasant little lamp:

    Union Metal Works Hong Kong. Imported years back by a pair of board members here. AKA Solar. It seems well made mostly with some aspects letting it down (mainly the cap and glass)

    Those are well made lanterns, but the vents in the hood are a bit large for windy places.

    видGood afternoon or night !. I have such a retromax 2827/200 lamp. I am trying to unscrew the pressure pump, it is unscrewing, but it cannot be pulled out. Even unscrewing the nut of the lamp carburetor regulator and I can not pull it out either.

    Хорошее время! Напольная лампаGood time! The lamp has on a larger surface the original paint of the combustion chamber cover without soot, all mechanisms are clean, not subject to corrosion.Бак лампы имеет незначительные повреждения краски.Отсутствует возможность определения возраста лампы,отсутствуют цифра и буквенные обозначения. Бачок металлический Может,времена ww2?

    Long tweezers are also helpful.

    Добрый день! Good day! Thanks a lot for the link! I will try to follow it! I would like to ask for more, if possible, send a link to a complete disassembly of the lamp, with all its points! Best regards, Evgeny
