It is very hard to find the identical or substitute filler cap for many of the lanterns. If you have the exact thread size and measurements you could try to compare them to some of the replacement
fuel caps on W.T. Kirkmans website. It's possible that other fuel caps from different British lanterns might fit, but that is just a guess. Feel free to use the main contact form and then we can chat
with one another via email. This section is for comments only.

I inherited from an old friend, who had been a railway enthusiast from a small boy, a pair of railway signal lamps.
They are identical to the one currently for sale at (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VINTAGE-BRITISH-RAIL-WESTERN-RAILWAY-OIL-SIGNAL-LAMP/192870098933?hash=item2ce7f427f5:g:u3oAAOSwNjxbyhmQ)
Unfortunately one does not have the filler cap.
I can try to get one made but if there is a source where I might obtain one I would be interested in knowing
If you can help I would much appreciate it

Ik heb een lantaarn van frohlich en wolter nr. 105 met hund op de voet.
Met wit glas zonder opdruk.
Ook is er een hoekje uit het glas gebroken.
Nu ben ik benieuwd naar de waarde ervan.

Hello, we´re from the Czech Republic and we have found a latern at our loft, probably from 1939? Feuerhand no 225 medium - in dark grey-green color, everything is original. However we have not found
out more information about this in our country, there is no real expert to give advice. We think that this model is uncommon and rare and we would like to know some information about it, because we
have small Sudetenland (Silesia) private museum with WWII items. Please, if it´s possible, we would like to know what is historical worth of this latern? Thank you very much! Jan and Kate
Below is link website with latern photos.

Hello Melanie, Here to take a look at your collection and thanks again for your advice with my K & T lamp. There are several complete lamps in varios s/h shops here in Ibiza but to judge by eBay
prices the cost of safely packing to ship to you would be about double the purchase price. One in heavy glass in perfect state apart from some rust on the burner is 27 Euros but weighs about 2 kg. as
the glass base is thick and heavy. Or is it only lanterns you collect NOT lamps? Regards from Ibiza, Spain

Hello, In clearing out my Mothers garage after her passing, I found a Marswells #2 Cold Blast Lantern in pretty good shape. I am not a collector ... but seeing that you are I thought I would ask you
its value. Thank you firstname.lastname@example.org

I have been indroduced to your web site by Cheri Rugh from Workshop Hero.
I inherited a lantern that sat in my Dads barn and I assumed it is a railroad lantern. (may have been a barn lantern but we lived within a 100 yards of the Great Northern RR and about 300 yards from
the Northern Pacfic RR.
The patent on it says Jan 26, 1909. Adams and Westlake Co.. it is rust covered but in pretty decent shape.
I have been trying to figure out how to soak it in one gallon of workshop hero and can't find the right container and It seems I am destined to spend more money on more fluid. I that your experience?
Can I mix it with Citric Acid? Also the handle has a cover which is either leather or asbestos , will that withstand the fluid or need to be sealed? Any ideas?
Also, I soak it twice, once bottom down and the once the top down, and metal is exposed twice what happens? ( I may be too cheap)
