    Here's a photo of my Tilley lantern illuminating the work bench while I work on the R1 heater. 20191127_200005.jpg

    Soon you'll be fettling another lamp by the light of the X246B and the warmth from the R1..... then it'll be darker and colder as winter draws in and you'll need some more :lol::lol:

    Nice photo! Put it this way. I only used to collect Duplex and central draught oil lamps until about 6 months ago, when I bought my first Pressure lamp (a Tilley PL53) as a ‘bit of fun’. 6 months on and have 9 of the buggers and had to build myself a new display cabinet to put them in! And now it’s full and I can’t stop buying lamps. You have been warned! But welcome!
