General News :-
 
We are catching up on the backlog of orders but delivery time is around
7 working days at present. It will be a little while before we can get back to our usual three days turnaround. 
We are working hard to clear the backlog of orders. Please do not telephone to chase your order unless you sent or telephoned it over 11 days ago. Ten minutes on the telephone looking up an order sent only last week will prevent two more customers from getting their parts on time..!
Our answer phone gets constantly blocked with messages, please browse the Website before calling as you may find your answer there. We receive so many calls asking 'I have looked at your Website, do you sell Tilley or Primus parts?'.....!

Remember to keep spares handy for emergencies, we still have customers who phone an order on a Wednesday when they are going away on a Saturday...! Order your spares now, don't wait until the last minute and expect the parts by the next day...!
Please check our
opening hours before trying to contact us, the answer phone also gets jammed full of empty messages when callers hang up after calling when we are out of the office.

Chimneys
Now in stock, our FAMOS pattern chimney for 120cp lamps and Superspeed. This chimney is marked 'Incandescent English Make' and manufactured in best quality borosilicate glass. It will also fit other Incandescent lamps such as early Aladdin.. Click here for details

Aladdin:-
We have good stocks model 23 lamp parts and Kone Kap mantles. New in stock is the brass, full circle shade carrier for the #21 and #23 lamps. This carrier fits under the burner like the pre-War #11 and #12 so is far more stable and much more attractive than the tripod.
Designed to take 10" shades the carrier will take the older Aladdin Rochester shade, the current 9 1/2" Vesta shade will fit but is a little loose.

Stove Spares:-
As we source more parts and our purchasing power grows we are reducing prices on stove spares. With raw material prices increasing this might show as a price drop or simply no increase. Every day we are looking for more parts for your stoves and lamps, watch these pages..!
We are commissioning a batch of 207b adjustable burners as fitted to the
Optimus #7 or 5R and marine stoves such as Optimus, Tayors, Shipmate, Mariner & Patria. Sample burners are now under test and once we are satisfied production will start with delivery due in October.  The burner is likely to be in great demand, order your now....!.
We have plenty of spare parts left in stock to service the burners.
