    This is my first tilley i found, original condition, as found. just new seal etc, and away she goes.
    It is a bit fumey, the mantle pulses, but i like it just as it is.
    1st time ive had her going in probably 2 years.

    Hi Darryl,

    I rather like those chrome x246s and yours is in good nick from what I can see in that photo. I also like the line up you have behind, hanging from the ceiling. How many do you have now? Send a shot of ‘pizza by Lantern light’ will you? Good stuff.

    When a Tilley is giving off fumes, it usually means that some part of the burner is loose.
