Hi just acquired two nice Patterson TV 1's , have stripped them down but my question is (if i needed to) , how do you replace the wicks ?
i also have acquired a nice old iron topped marsaut Naylor of Wigan lamp
can anyone give me an idea of the age of this type of lamp off this description
marsaut type , single row of round holes to top of bonnet,
bonnet crimped onto top ring
four leg cage very shallow fuel cell
lock is just two holes that line up (poss lead rivet ) ?
flat wick burner with only a ******* for adjustment
single gauze (slight taper
glass held in by a glass ring
lamp number and Naylor of Wigan is on a brass strip crimped around two of the brass legs

any info is welcome
Thanks Andy
