Emergency Oil Lamp! - Ready to use!

 

 

We never know when the power will go out.  Right now (Oct. 12, 2019) in California literally millions of people are having their electric power cut off without warning - and the power can be out for days!

I have assembled an emergency oil lamp that can be stored in a very sturdy crush-proof box safely for years until needed.  Then the fuel reservoir can be fueled, wait for 15 minutes, light it, and not have to live in the dark!   When the lamp is no longer needed the font can be emptied of fuel and the lamp replaced in the box until it is needed again.  Very inexpensive insurance!

The burner and chimney will fit on any narrow-mouth ''Mason'' canning jar or similar.  The 4 oz jar will provide 2 to 3 hours of burning time, usually enough for an emergency.  If a longer burn time is required the burner can be screwed onto a pint jar and provide light for up to 8 hours.

Any lamp fuel available in most hardware stores will work, including clear 1K kerosene.  Fuel cannot be mailed so it must be purchased locally.  Kept in a dry, dark location such as a cupboard or storage closet in a garage, the fuel will literally last for decades.

The Emergency Oil Lamp as supplied, with a 4 oz. narrow mouth jar, a Queen Anne burner with 7/8'' wide wick, and 3'' x 8'' tall chimney.

The narrow mouth canning jar burner can be put on any ''Mason'' jar regardless of size.  Above is a pint handled narrow mouth jar I have been using for 20 years.

STORED SAFELY IN THE SHIPPING BOX

When the lamp is no longer needed the font can be emptied of fuel and the lamp replaced in the box until it is needed again.  Very inexpensive insurance!
