    I’ve fettled the AL10 whilst waiting for the new mica shade to arrive.

    A couple of nice design details became apparent whilst working on this lamp. The first was the pump’s non-return valve jumper, which has a little groove in it just behind the cup, to retain the spring:

    The second is the letters “G.W.R.” stamped into the pump shaft, presumably at the Tilley works:

    I’ll post a picture of the finished lamp once the mica shade is fitted.

    The lamp is now finished and back with its owner.
