It's been a long time since I have posted on here. I have always figured my models were never that good so I did not put them on here. I drew this for something to do the last few days because of a snow storm we were having. I was driving my wife crazy I think. She went and got this lamp and told me here, draw this. This should keep you busy for awhile. Well it did and when I was done she approved. She then told me to put it on here. I hope you all approve like she did. Carroll

Excellent attention to the physical details of the construction.  Looks quite realistic.

Thanks guys for looking at my model. I am glad you all enjoyed it. In a lot of ways it was quite challenging  I used tools to build the lamp that I do not often use. So, in reality my wifes project ended up being a refresher course. It was quite fun to construct.

And Yes Don & Tim my wife is a keeper and a good judge. Thank You she enjoyed that. Pepper

I'm excited - I would neither be able nor would I have the patience to draw these fine ornaments.

Hi Carroll.
Great job. I once drew a similar lamp, it had only something like a mirror, reflecting the light in a specific direction.

Drajer, I am glad you liked the lamp. For the most part as I drew I had to keep thinking how to go about achieving my goal. It was fun  I had to use a lot of tools that I normally don't get to use very much. It is still very cold here and my wife gave me another interesting project. Do you happen to know what a wick trimmer looks like? I will post on here when I am done. It has been interesting to draw also. Just keep drawing. Carroll

Thanks for your kind words Marek, Did you draw a center draft lamp or a aladdin lamp? The one here is a center draft lamp and burns kerosene. The wick is round and fits over a tube. It draws air from the base. Was the reflector glass on your lamp or metal? My wife and I are getting up there in age and can remember using these types of lamps on the farm when we were kids. We still have a few different types of lamps sitting around the house. How times have changed. Just think from candle light to diode light in one generation. WOW

Technological progress is indeed huge in many areas. If we live a little longer, we will see many amazing things.
 I attach a link to the drawing of my lamp. (I see that it has been 5 years ago. Time flows quickly  ;) ).

Hi Marek, I remembered it when I got your thread up. It is quite different from the lamps we have. The difference is the way the reflector is mounted on the lamp. I also remembered you as well as I, we were still learning to draw on Turbocad. I am still learning today. Thanks for sharing memories with me. Carroll

Hi Carroll,
do you mean the tool which looks like scissors? Didn't knew till now that there's an instrument for trimming wicks. Fits to your lamp. I'm curious what your's will look like.

I'm sure I still have a pair of these trimming scissors somewhere.

I used them regularly to trim the flat wicks in my old gaff cutter, sailing yacht.
Using 8 inch circular mirrors, behind each lamp, as an aid to reflecting light into the cabin, worked very well.
More than enough for reading by.
They are essentially like normal scissors, but one blade is wider, to accommodate a outer curved edge, acting as a scoop to collect the clippings.
You obviously don't want anything dropping where it shouldn't!

Very nice work on the lamp. 

I just typed 'wick trimmer' into google, clicked on images, and there are loads, double scoop and single scoop like Tim mentioned.
