    Gentlemen/ladies,
    I'm a collector of camping stoves but I've recently acquired a couple of tilley type lamps, I'm wondering if anybody could tell me what the thread is that the vapouriser screws into the pressure vessel/tank, I know what the thread diameter is 1/2" but measuring the pitch I think makes it a manufacturers thread i.e. a one off.

    No it's 1/2" BSB. 26 tpi and a standard thread. A 1/2" Right Hand Cycle thread will also work.::Neil::
