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.

'Discovering Oil Lamps' by the late Cecil Meadows is a great introduction to 'lampin' and a gem of reference for wick lamp enthusiasts, see Books link.

There have been a number of price increases on Tilley products. Prices of raw materials, especially brass have rocketed, watch our price list for details. Back in stock are the late gallery pins & nuts for table lamps, new is the retaining screw for the glass on the AL620 and Tilley conversion hood.

Available soon........Limited edition 'Collectors' Vapalux Lantern, in the style of the lamp produced on the 1970's this lamp will has a chromed brass tank and fittings with black hood. A must for collectors and Vapalux enthusiasts, don't miss out on this offer...!
Available late August on a first come- first served basis we are taking orders for this lamp now. Complete with accessories we will send post free in the UK, (overseas cost on application). Click for details

Rises in the price of brass and production costs have resulted in large increases on Vapalux & Bialaddin parts. Still manufactured in the UK to the highest standard these lamps and spares are still the best available.

We do not major in Coleman lamps & stoves but we have a large range of Coleman stove and lamp spares.
New in stock is the 214C 700 single mantle paraffin lantern, 300cp light at a reasonable price..!
We also have the replacement tank for the 424 two burner stoves.

Paraffin Lamp Wicks, Chimneys, Heater Wicks & Heater spares:-
A section devoted to Wicks and heater spares is now available click here!

Price increases plus the falling pound have resulted in large price increases in the price of imported oil lamps, we have kept these to a minimum but some are substantial..! We have good stocks of most styles of our best quality oil lamps from Europe. Suitable for boats, cottages or the home,

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

We now have good stocks of most Kosmos Chimneys, Matador chimneys plus the small Gem and Pixie glass. However other bulge slip and Duplex chimneys are still in short supply and deliveries will continue to be erratic in the foreseeable future.

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 News :-
The T85 Nova Plus is a development of the popular T80 Nova stove. Now with wider, more stable legs/pan supports and 'Powerline' fuel delivery the stove has accurate simmering control. Click here for details
Back in stock is the T88, a development of the classic 111 series of stoves. Now based around a Nova technology burner the stove is lighter and more controllable. We only stock the very latest version of this stove, make sure you are not offered the old type..!

Stove Spares:-
First some good news..! 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 onece 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.
