    Awwww Mate!!! ....... This 9955 of yours really “floats my boat”. I’m totally in lust with it.
    It’s a fine example and I’m sure that you want my address so you can send it to me.
    Enjoy.

    Dribbling members? Leaky orifices? This forum is starting to feel like a French farce... but totally in a good way. I've not laughed so hard in days!

    Oh, and your lantern is absolutely spot on @Greenboy23 - I'm green with envy! (Badum tish)

    My orifice isn’t dribbling, l always tighten up my nuts first. :shock:
    This ensures that no fuel leaks out and causes a calamitous fire ball. :oops:
    Agree Colin, a good giggle by all.
    Cheers
    Pete

    That reminds me - I've got a leaking gland I need to attend to. Thanks for jogging my memory, Pete... :thumbup:

    Don’t you just hate it when you discover your gland is leaking?
    You now know what to tighten to cure the problem .... :shock:
    Of course, you could get someone to give you hand. :clap:
    Cheers

    ..:roll:.. Anyway that is a very fine lantern ! ... And seems to work fine, too:thumbup:

    Did you have to do much fettling or was it more of a clean and service? Just out of interest, what mantle was used here?

    Cheers!
