Re: Cleaning and repair Miners Lamps

Hi i have acquired a couple of Wolf 7RMBS lamps after removing the flint striker cartridge to strip and clean them , although i have not done anything to them other than clean and add a new flit , they have both stopped working ie they don't strike
they did however both work before i removed them , i was wondering if they were a bit temperamental as i don't really want to strip them down

any info welcome

Do you want a Light that Plugs In or do you want a DIRECT WIRED Lamp?

The SL30-71 I showed you above attaches to the back of your artwork frame. It is very different to choose from a plug-in to a direct wire style, as you most definitely commit to an artwork staying in the same part of your room forever when you choose to do a direct wire lamp.
