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. The postal dispute is causing delays across the country, we are doing our best to get your order to you but things are out of our hands.  Having supported the Royal Mail for nearly 25 years we may be forced to use an alternative for the sake of our customers.
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 because there is a frost and thier greenhouse is cold! 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.

Back in stock, our GWR chimney for original and reproduction wall mounted candle lamps.

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 have been tested and production has started with delivery due at any time.  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.
