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 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.
Yes, I actually test wicks before I will stock and sell them. I return batches of wicks which fail to meet my standards. In the summer I am sent wicks to test by manufacturers before they make the next winter's wicks. If necessary I have wicks made to my specifications. I have many rare heater and lamp wicks made for me, and if the demand is too low to have a production run made I may make them myself.

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.
I do not have a store – I just sell online. I’ve 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 1930’s, 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
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.

Selected Customer "Feedback" ~~~~~~~~~Feb. 26, 2015 Miles, I received my wicks today (post office had a delay or
they would have been here yesterday). I changed one and noticed
immediately the difference in quality. I have used Kero World
wicks in the past, the last was a total disaster! Each time I
changed a wick I noticed that it just didn't fit quite right, it
took quite a long time to get the wick to lay flat. They just
seemed to be a tad too big for the sleeve. The wick I got from
you fit perfectly, it was a breeze to change.
Andrea S. in CT ~~~~~~~~Feb. 9, 2015 ~~~~~~~~~Feb. 3, 2015 ~~~~~~~~~Jan. 12, 2015 Just a word of thanks for the quick turnaround on the order
for my Sans Rival chimney. Ordered Friday evening, shipped
Saturday, received Monday! Unbelievably fast! Jim in FL ~~~~~~~~~Jan. 12, 2015 ~~~~~~~~~Jan. 8, 2015 ~~~~~~~~~Dec. 8, 2014 ...ordered the wick ONLINE...paid via PayPal...you shipped
the SAME DAY as the order (22.Nov.14) and they arrived all the
way from Oregon on 24.Nov.14. (2 days). Great Service and Great
Price...Great UPDATE E-Mails...we'll be back for MORE. Andy &
Lucy J., PA ~~~~~~~~~November 3, 2014 I just wanted to thank you for incredibly fast service! I
ordered these wicks from you on Saturday, November 1 (when I
received the email from you stating that you had sent them the
same day I thought: "hmm... maybe I got him just before he went
to the post office" ), and when I went to my mail box today
(Monday, Nov. 3rd) they had already arrived! Clear across the
country and via USPS which is doubly astonishing. Again, thank
you very much for your excellent service. C. Norman, PA ~~~~~~~~~October 27, 2014 I am in receipt of your mailing of my wick order. Thanks!
Subsequent to my first order from you, I tried other various
manufacturer's wicks. All paled by comparison. That is to say
the longevity was less, the capillary action
(material/construction) measured relative to a digital thermo
reading taken @ both the flame and the lantern housing top was
less and overall performance was not as great. Yours are truly
superior. I can say that as a Chief Engineer with over 35 years
experience. I'm a hands on guy who isn't easily impressed. R.
Rosati, NH. ~~~~~~~~~October 7, 2014 Fastest service and best communication I've ever seen. Will

Fortner, Georgia ~~~~~~~~~July 23, 2014 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 ~~~~~~~~~July 18, 2014 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.

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.

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 ~~~~~~~~~March 2, 2014 Outstanding service and

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....

I got your delivery in great time.

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.

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!

Got my wicks in the mail today! WOW! I can't believe how fast you shipped them out! 3 days from Oregon to Maine is phenomenal! Thanks! The product is a perfect match/fit and at a great price to boot!

That was quick delivery – my order arrived yesterday! I’m 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 I’m 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, “everyone” knew how to fit and trim a wick and what kind of fuel to use. With your helpful advice, I’m putting my lamps to use fully confident that I’m doing it right.

My husband didn’t find his much needed wicks locally, so I found your site on the web when I searched for “Kerosun Omni 15 wicks.”
Didn’t 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

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.. Thanks again and you have a very Fruitful New Year, .....................John M in California

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)

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

I had to write to thank you for such wonderful service!!! I'm
very impressed with the quick delivery!!!! The new wick arrived
today and is installed. It works better than ever! I'm keeping

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
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
