RESOURCE INFORMATION: 

Kerosene Heater Wicks:

Kerosene Heater Information:

I have had many reports of flame "dwindling" or poor performance of heaters.  This is caused by poor capillary action, the result of water in the fuel: It only takes a teaspoon of accumulated water to saturate the cotton lower portion of a wick.  Click here for the solution.

    CUI is an American importer of heater wicks.  CUI has the exclusive import rights for wicks made by Hattersley in England.  CUI also imports wicks from Korea.  I reserve the right to substitute other brands of heater wicks where I have found them to be of high quality and value, such as original (OEM) Aladdin Blue Flame and Valor  heater and lamp wicks.

    Hattersley (since 1834) has been making heater wicks for decades with the highest quality materials!   "The Japanese have developed their wicks solely around the refined kerosene available in the Far East. We have taken our products a stage further and as a result of our constant development program our wicks have been recognised as the finest in the World because they perform very well in all grades of kerosene."   Tony Woodyatt, CEO Emeritus, Hattersley

    Hattersley is the manufacturer of OEM wicks for many brands of heaters for Europe, including Toyotomi (KeroSun, Zibro) &  Corona., and made to the highest UL Standards.  Hattersley, Aladdin (UK) and Valor are sister companies.

    Hattersley's Wick Testing Laboratory

    Hattersley makes the World's most comprehensive range of wicks for modern and antique kerosene heaters and lamps. The company's dedication to progress is exemplified by its wicks development laboratory/testing room and wick library, which Mr Woodyatt established within the factory in 1992, and has been used since then to develop their products to the highest possible level.

    SORRY, THE WICK SHOP DOES NOT HAVE FACILITIES FOR WALK IN CLIENTS, BUT OUR WEB SITE REMAINS OPEN 24/7 TO HELP YOU.   I ANSWER QUESTIONS AS QUICKLY as possible (via e-mail, not telephone) to help with problems.  I ship via USPS every day about noon, so even orders received up to 11:00 AM Pacific Time can receive same-day mailing - I give you the best possible service I can provide.  If you have questions about my wicks, your heaters or lamps, please e-mail me at Miles@ruraloregon.net - I am your tech support. 

    "ABOUT_US"

    I do not have a store Ė I just sell online.  Iíve been selling kerosene products, mostly wicks, since 1999. Virtually all of my wicks are made by the best wick maker in the world, Hattersley in England.  Wicks are made to my specifications and tested in my own extensive collection of heaters, lamps and stoves.

    I keep all wicks in stock all year for those who want to be prepared for winter in advance.  I ship wicks worldwide and in fact have the best list and selection of wicks for heaters sold in Europe, Australia and Scandinavia. 

    In 2005 I noticed that except for Rayo lamps, wicks for center draft lamps had not been made since before WW II.  I purchased many Victorian Era lamps of various sizes, measured original wicks, tested new wicking for diameter, thickness and capillary action, and had the full range of center draft wicks made by Hattersley in England. 

     
    Proper Victorian Era center draft chimneys had not been manufactured since the Depression, so after considerable testing I had the best samples replicated in borosilicate glass.
     
    Many larger sizes of flat wicks for European Kosmos lamps had also been unobtainable for decades so I had them made by Hattersley after testing for weave, thickness and capillary action in my own collection of lamps.  http://www.milesstair.com/flat_lamp_wicks.html#KOSMOS
     
    The proper chimneys for many Kosmos lamps had also not been made since the 1930ís, so I  had them made from borosilicate glass. http://www.milesstair.com/Sans_Rival_Chimney.html
     
    Student lamps made from 1875 through WW I did not have good chimneys available, so I had them made.
     
    The old sad iron heaters similarly had not had new wicks available since before WW II, so after testing thickness, width, and capillary action I also had them made.   http://www.milesstair.com/flat_lamp_wicks.html#Sad_Iron

    Kindler wicking for gravity-fed stoves made by Boss, Florence and many other stoves from before WW II had not been readily available so I carry the full line of kindler wicking.

     
    By 2008 I had more information on kerosene stoves, heaters and center draft lamps on this website than all other websites in the world combined and was the largest independent seller of kerosene heater and center draft lamp wicks in the world.

    We have worked very hard to earn your trust and respect.  We still work seven days a week processing orders.  Every order is acknowledged upon receipt. All orders are shipped every day except Sundays and holidays at noon and delivery information and a tracking number sent to your email address - there are no delays in shipping orders.

    Thanks for the wicks they work excellent, I have been looking for them all over Australia but they are to costly , I found your website and was apprehensive about buying them at first, but now I have I will be buying more in the future. I will be letting everyone I know about your site, thanks again.  Anthony, Port Augusta South Australia

    Just a brief note to confirm that the parcel containing the wick which I ordered arrived three days ago. I am impressed by the prompt service. The wick has been installed and my Valor heater, purchased in Namibia in about 1967, is functioning again - in New Zealand - after a ten year hiatus. Thank you kindly. Alex in NZ

    Just wanted to say thanks for the my recent purchase from you it took about a week and your prices are about a 1/3 of ebay over here will deffinately use your shop again. All the best, Greg in Australia

    Hello Miles just wanted to say the wick you made for me worked great! I need to get the right chimney for it but i put one on i had for now. Here are a few photos of the lamp and it would not be working if not for the wick you made. Robert in Florida

    Package arrived in Monday's mail (mailed Saturday), wick installed and trimmed per instructions and little Canaveral 8500 puts out a beautiful blue flame for the first time in 10 years. Thanks again Bro Stair for your service and very quick shipping.  Charles C., Maryland

    That add on little platinum plated screen for the KeroSun is amazing.  The fumes have reduced to almost zero.  I bought a new kerosene heater but didnt even open it.  As it appears the old one with a new wick and that screen still works well.  Thank you for offering those products. J. Henkel, Texas

    ~~~~~~~~~March 3, 2014

    Miles, Once again thank you for shipping my order to me in record time. I will continue to order my lamp and heater supplies from you.  I installed the catalytic filter i recieved from you on my heater.
    Also i installed a new wick. What a difference the catalytic filter has made. Now when i go in my garage there is no odor as if a kerosene heater is lit. You smell nothing. I think i will order 2 more for my other heaters.  For someone with sinus problems or breathing problems like i have this is the way to go if you have a kerosene heater.   Now when our power is out and we need emergency heat in the house i can rely on my kerosene heater to keep us warm.
     Thanks, Ron M. in Hershey, PA

    I received my wick for my Sears Kerosene heater today thank you. If it shipped any faster I think it would have ignited on its own. I must say I had the hardest time finding a replacement wick for it over the years never finding the perfect wick. Well, all that was solved when I came across your website. Not only was I confidently able to determine quickly and easily the exact replacement wick for my heater but I also got an education in kerosene heaters from your great website. It was a welcome change to do business with someone that actually cares about their customers and has as much enthusiasm for their products as you do. Being a business owner myself that practices this same philosophy I really appreciate it.  Mark S., Morrisville, PA

    I first discovered your web site a couple of years ago when I was looking for a safe and alternative source of heating, cooking and lighting for my family in the event of an emergent situation. Being an avid emergency preparedness buff, I do a lot of research and information seeking on the web. Milestair.com is by far the most informative, complete and sound information on kerosene and its uses. You could say I was "converted" to kerosene and using your site as a guide, have purchased three (soon to be four) kerosene heaters, a stove, oven and even a kerosene lamp. I hope I have to never rely on these items as my only source, I like to be prepared as I see an eroding world situation and tyrants running our government and economic machine. Not only have I enjoyed the vast information you provide on kerosene heating, it is comforting knowing I have a go-to for all of my kerosene accessory needs from wicks to fuel pumps. Any questions I have had (which have been several) have always been answered promptly. I have always been treated respectfully and dealt with honestly. I just can't recommend a better source for my kerosene needs. My wife and I have literally become hooked to our kerosene heaters during the bitter could Missouri winters. My wife, who is cold-blooded by nature, can never seem to get warm with our home's furnace. As soon as we light up the kerosene heater, she is happy as can be enjoying the high quality intense "bon fire warmth" the kerosene heaters put out. Your site has taught me how to use heaters, maintain them, keep them in tip-top condition just to name a few. I am truly grateful for the quick speed in which my orders arrive. Lightening fast always! Your honesty and great work ethic are appreciated! You have provided a wonderful service for our family and for that we are very thankful!   Adam Vance, Greenwood, Missouri

    Thank you so very much for your impossibly prompt service in filling my order for a wick for my kerosene heater! I have been dealing with mail order businesses for years now -- I haven't left my home in over ten years -- but I have never seen such remarkably fast service. I reside on ten acres of woodland in very rural Ohio, yet my wick arrived in two days without my having to pay extra for your service. Temperatures have been dipping below freezing around here....
    Your service is truly fantastic! Thank you.  Michael H., Ohio

    ~~~~~~~~~November 28, 2011

    I got your delivery in great time.
    The wick is perfect and installation was easy with the enclosed instructions.
    Thank you for the GREAT service!    R. Tucci, Ohio

    ~~~~~~~~~November 23, 2011

    You do NOT receive enough positive feedback on how wonderful your site is.  I have been looking for a new wick for my Kero-Sun Moonlighter for two years.  I bought the heater in 1980 and have not used it since 1985.  Shopping at big box stores and small hardware stores for a replacement wick was useless.  I didn't have enough information about my heater to be able to choose the correct wick by simply reading the information on the packages.  However, your site showed me pictures, had the owner's manual and carefully explained the different model numbers and types of wicks.  I just ordered the wick today and I'm confident that when it comes it will be the correct wick and will light my stove with the loving glow it had 30 years ago.  Thanks again.  T. Hicks, MN.

    Just wanted to email a quick thank you for your quick and efficient service. You shipped quickly, had an accurate and fair shipping price for me in Canada available immediately, and the item arrived as described and properly protected. I will be doing business with you again soon, and will send those from my former military, and now Firefighting, circles to you for for what you stock.
    All the best, Greg C. in BC

    Thanks for the fast service on the wick I ordered. Please folks if you have or are considering any kerosene stove, heater or lamp look at this website. Instructions on use, care and maintenance are invaluable and free. This has been a great help to me to find the products and information at what has to be the best website EVER, along with great wicks at fair prices.

    Dear Miles,
      I purchased two wicks from you for my Kero World heater and my what a difference.  Yours burn better than those I used to buy at the Wal Mart.
    My old wicks I would have had to burn dry twice now since I installed them, but I haven't burned this wick dry yet because I haven't needed too.  
    Great products that I will be purchasing from you here out.  Many thanks!

    Excellent service!!  Of course with the largest snow we've had in years both of heaters were out of commission.  I ordered wicks on Saturday and on Tuesday I have them in my hands!
    Thank you for your great service, and for such an information packed website!

    That was quick delivery Ė my order arrived yesterday!  Iím writing today because I had some time to fit the new wicks into my lamps this afternoon.

    This is my second order from you and Iím very, very pleased.  I had trouble finding the right wick for an older B&H, but the one I got from you fits and works perfectly.  Thanks to your descriptions that include both dimensions and make/model references, I confidently bought wicks for a Pittsburgh Success and P&A.  Maybe 100 years ago when these lamps were in common use, ďeveryoneĒ knew how to fit and trim a wick and what kind of fuel to use.  With your helpful advice, Iím putting my lamps to use fully confident that Iím doing it right.

     Regards,

    Dorsey, in N.J.

    My husband didnít find his much needed wicks locally, so I found your site on the web when I searched for ďKerosun Omni 15 wicks.Ē

    Didnít know how long it would take to receive them, but we got them from Oregon to Indiana in less than 48 hours from the time we ordered them!

    Reasonable price, reasonable shipping, Outstanding Service!!!

     Thank you so very much!

    Hi Miles.  Do you have a special in with the USPS?
    I ordered the wick & chimney on Saturday morning, and it was delivered today, MONDAY.
    You and the USPS are the pinnacle of service.
     
    BTW, The chimney is beautiful. I'll send you a picture when the Dresden is up and running.

    ~~~~~~~~~February 8, 2009  (Note:  Parts of Tennessee and Missouri were in the midst of a vicious ice storm.  Power to many localities was out for weeks.  I shipped all wicks to that area via Priority Mail.)

    Guess what I got in the mail today. I ordered my wick on Wednesday 2-4-09 and received it on Friday 2-6-09. I knew that when I had read the responses on your web page, everyone was excited by the quick delivery. I didn't know you could send mail from Oregon to Tennessee in one day. Thank you very much. I also appreciate the quick responses to my email questions. It has truly been a great experience doing business with you. I didn't see a place to respond to the feedback. If you can put this email on it please do. I will tell everybody I know about your web page. Again thanks for everything. May God Bless You!!!   Aaron Spencer, TN

    I ordered my wicks and igniter on 11/22/08 and received today 11/24.  First of all, thank you for the super fast delivery, I am truely impressed and shocked that such service still exists for online businesses. 

    I have been purchasing wicks for my Dura Heat kerosene heater from a large local retailer since they were cheaper and carried the same wick as 3 other retailers in my area.  I have "burned up" 2 of their wicks in just under 6 weeks.  The wicks burn up so fast while never operating properly from first installation.  The height adjustment was always sticking, especially  when pressing the knob to "turn off" the heater. It never once went completely down on either wick (nor could I get it to go any lower) causing the wick to burn for about 30 - 60 seconds before going out completely.  After only 3 or 4 burns on the new wick, it was a major chore to get the wick to even raise without catching on something whether due to the soiled wick or bad fit.  The first time I used up a wick, I thought it was something I had done wrong... whether it was the installation (even though it was a pinned wick) or the wick height while burning.  I looked into the problem online and was reassured I was following proper methods for installation and burning.  I found your site in my research and read about the fiberglass top and cotton bottom wicks.  Since I had "burned up" the other wicks so fast, I was sold when I read about the nonburning fiberglass.

     I was truely impressed with wicks when I took them out of the package.  The superior quality was obvious as soon as I put it in my hands.  After getting the new wick installed (exactly the same as the other wicks I installed) It worked flawlessly.  No hanging or sticking and when I lit it for the first time, it was very clear that I made the right choice purchasing from you.  I am generating a very noticable amount of more heat with the new wick which will save me money. 

    Thank you for your service!  You have not only earned my lifelong loyalty as a customer, but all my high recommendations to anyone I talk to that would need your items.  I appologize for the long email.  I am hoping that it may help people in the future that come to you and your website and have any doubts that your products are any different than anything else that they have tried.  I look forward to doing business with you again.  Thanks Again.    Ed Potts, Michigan

    I recently purchased a new wick for my old kerosene heater and one of the catalytic burners, let me tell you that I could notice as soon as I looked at the wick that it was far superior to any I had seen in the big box stores. I installed the wick just as the instructions said and installed the catalytic burner as well. The first time I fired up the heater there was a major difference in how it burned and how it smelled (there was NONE). I have read your site all the way through and will  ONLY use you from now on  with all my kerosene heater needs. David A, Maryland

    I wish to leave you "Feedback" like we do on Ebay... I can't believe just how fast you got this purchase to me. I ordered it on Saturday... and there it is in my mailbox on Monday ... WoW.. And thanks for using the Postal Service for your shipping needs.  Wm.(Rusty) Crist Lynnwood Washington.

    Miles~  The wicks were correct and no problems installing them. The instructions were very, very explicit and detailed. I read them through once to get the general idea, then took each step one by one to replace the old one. Took about 15 minutes without any problems..

    Hi, I Recently Purchased One Of These Heaters, The Wick That Came Installed With The Unit Was Virtually Worthless ! Had To Raise It Daily, Take Apart And Reinstall It Higher Every Three Or Four Days,. It Just Kept Burning Away. I Recently Purchased Several Replacement Wicks From You, Installed One In The Heater, And It Now Burns Flawlessly, No More Daily Adjustment, No More Taking It Apart To Raise The Wick. I Don`t Know If It`s Possible To Make People Aware Of This In Todays Legal Climate, (Lawsuits, Etc.). Just Wanted To Let You Knqw That You Ara 100% Percent Right When You State All Wicks Are Not Created Equally. I`ve Been Running Various Kero Sun Heaters (Stating In The Fall And Burning Continuously) For The Entire Winter (Long And Cold) For At Least Fifteen Years, In Northern New York. This Heater Works Great ! Just Thought I`d Pass Along The Info.

    I just wanted to send off a quick note to say thank-you for the promp service. I ordered a new wick on Sunday and it arrived on Wednesday. That is quicker than I could have had a store order it for me and without the hassle. Thanks again and have a great day.  Sherry (Iowa)

    Thanks for the great info and service. Your communication and customer service is amazing!   Many thanks, Shawneene (Ohio)

    Miles:  You are amazing!  
                        Order in to Oregon Saturday, packaged and shipped same
    day, received in Atlanta Monday.  That is very fast service!  Even more
    surprising is the fact that the USPS does have a Priority Mail service!
    
    I really like the battery powered fuel pump, I wish I had made this purchase
    three months ago.  It is a must for anyone charged with the chore of fueling
    kerosene heaters.
    
    Stellar . . .  Thank you for the stellar service!   Darryl in Atlanta

    Miles,

    Merry Christmas! I ordered two wicks from you for my Corona DK23 - an absolutely perfect fit. After wasting my hard-earned cash at Home Depot and Lowes for wicks that SHOULD have fit but didn't, I stumbled upon your web site and I'm sure glad I did. I spent two hours trying to jam a wick in my DK23, I was covered with K1 and aggravated like you wouldn't believe. I tossed it in the garbage in disgust. Maybe that was a Godsend, as it probably would have been dangerous if I had managed to make it fit.

    Your wicks came this afternoon, and I REALLY appreciated the instructions for the DK23 that came with the wick. It took me ten minutes and most of that was just cleaning things up. I hope you stay in business for a L-O-N-G time, and I can guarantee that you'll get my business in the future. My regular heating system is electric, and you can never guarantee that the juice will be there when you need it. The 23DK can heat my entire house, and it's not a small house. Even the folks who have oil aren't safe - if the electric goes, the blowers are inoperative. Kerosene isn't cheap this year, but the DK23 puts out a LOT of heat, and we love it. I feel much better now that I don't have to worry about where the wicks are coming from.

    AND... your web site is wonderful and informative. Feel free to use me as a reference - a VERY satisfied customer. Thanks again for your great service. Peace to you in this Christmas season and our best for a prosperous and healthy 2006.

    My wicks arrived today and I installed one in about 30 minutes . . . the instructions were very clear and easy-to-follow. Now my heater is burning brightly and more cleanly than it has in years. I was surprised how badly the old wick looked when I removed it. Many thanks for your swift and courteous service.

    Sincerely, Richard

    Thanks so much for the help. I have the order form and a check in the mail heading your way. I went to every hardware store within 100 miles of my house and nobody had a clue about what I needed. It's nice to know someone out there is willing to help. Thanks again! Robert

    Hi Miles: The wick for my Perfection 500 arrived yesterday. I installed it this morning and it works perfect! I think the problem with the KeroWorld wick was due to the thin construction also since there was air space between the wick and brass guide walls that allowed kerosene vapors through after warm up causing flare up and smoke. Thanks again.... Greg....

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Thank you very much for the reply. It's nice to know there are still people willing to help others out when they have questions. This weekend I'll have to look into raising the wick as you suggested. Thank you again for all your help and all the great information you provide to all of us. And you'll be hearing from me soon, as I'll need to order some wicks so I have replacements on hand.  Chris
