Re: 20160129 Marketing Venue: Kerosene heaters

Postby tahanson43206 » Fri Jan 29, 2016 3:00 pm

To include kerosene as an 18th Century technology is a bit of a stretch, because (according to Wikipedia) it was invented in the 19th Century.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kerosene

However, it seems reasonable (to me) to suppose that a person living in the 18th century could have understood lamps and heaters designed to use kerosene.

On that basis, I would like to open this thread with a link to a provider of wicks and related items for kerosene heaters:

http://www.milesstair.com/

With the assistance of instructions provided by Mr. Stair on his web site, I have brought an Aladdin Blue Flame Heater back to life.

A wick trimming tool, and a recently manufactured wick are on order.

20160203 Kerosent follow up in 18th Century Providers

Postby tahanson43206 » Wed Feb 03, 2016 5:40 pm

Mr. Miles Stair sent a replacement wick for an Aladdin Blue Flame Heater, and a wick trimming tool.

The tool appears to be an original manufactured in England.

The wick appears to be well made, and I understand from correspondence with Mr. Stair, that the wick was manufactured recently, since he sold out of previous stock.
