Hello, I picked one of these up as my first lamp as I'm sure many here have. It had clearly not been used in some time and had quite a lot of rust on the frame and vapouriser. I did a quick initial clean before changing the washers (all hard / falling apart). It wasn't pressurising with the first pump leather I used (I think it was too wet), so I changed the leather and it worked much better. It's not roaring - it's just giving a gentle hiss at the moment and not as bright as I thought it'd be, so I will see if the tube into the tank needs poking through with a copper wire. I had already removed various dead spiders / egg sacs from the hood / air ways, but I think I'll need to remove the heater to be sure.
