  •  Mason Jar Oil Lamps (5+ / 0-)

    This guy's a doofus, but he's showing the mason jar lids that are threaded to accept oil lamp burners.  These are available from Lehman's.

    The nice thing about this is that you can keep your lamp oil in mason jars for storage and just switch the burner to a fresh jar of oil when needed.  Get the good brass burners which burn with a bright steady flame, not the cheap brass plate burners.  

    There’s always free cheddar in a mousetrap, baby

    •  Be sure to label the jars CLEARLY (5+ / 0-)

      Out in California a couple of years ago, I read a newspaper column by a guy whose friends had just been horribly burned when they thought a poorly-labeled plastic bottle full of lamp oil was water, and they tried to use it to make coffee. It exploded all over them. You can't assume people will notice that the smell isn't right. I'm very careful how I store lamp oil now.
