1A LAMP

hi terry,
we made the 1a for the gpo then bt.
it was approved to tm1 ie testing memorandum 1 for oxygen deficiency.
it will also detect firedamp. it burns paraffin.
the engineers light them above ground then hang it down the manhole and if it goes out they need to ventilate.
many telecoms contractors use them now.
we also supply them to the naval dockyards for checking ships holds and on subs.
we are currently trialing a new cap lamp at mines rescue mansfield with mick noble.
regards david mather

Dear Sir
I wonder if you could help me. I have just aquired a safety lamp
that bears your manufacturers plate with the No 1A stamped on it.
There is a logo stamped on the riveted seam of the chrome bonnet
which resembles the old Telecom logo, this being the letter ''T'' in a
circle and the right hand bar of the ''T'' made with two small circles.
The bonnet cannot be locked as there is no sliding bar built into the frame
and there is no provision to lock the base.
The wick is the flat type and is adjusted by a handwheel under the base.
If a few photographs would help please let me know
Hoping you can help.
Yours Sincerely

ECCLES LAMPS IN SOUTH WALES

hi graham,
we do not have lists. what i can tell you is that from nationalisation in 1947 the ministry of power adopted our type 6 lamp as the standard for gas testing.
to avoid a monopoly situation they brought thomas & williams and wolf into the supply chain who between them had about 10% of the market.
in the main i would have expected most of the pits you mention to be supplied by thomas & williams.
however the eccles lamp was quite well known in south wales.
hope this helps.

Hi. I wonder if you could send me a list of all the pits in South East Wales, if any, that were supplied with your lamps. I'm doing some local research of several local coal mines, and I would welcome any information you could let me have. especially Oakdale, Markham, Wyllie, North Celenyn, South Celenyn, Llanbradach. Looking forward to your reply. Many thanks for your valued time..........Regards, Graham.

DATING YOUR LAMP

IT WAS MADE IN 1978


Hi,

I have found in my attic a miners lamp of your manufacture, I was most surprised to find you were still producing !

I wondered if you could date the lamp for me, I suspect its not that old judging by the condition. The details on the plate are Type 6 M & Q safety lamp Approval B/28. On the horizonal area below the glass there is a M and 78/ stamped in.

Regards

David Baldock

UNSCREWING THE LAMP BASE OR VESSEL

if the locking /fuel filler flap is out of the way there is nothing to stop the vessel unscrewing. try leaving it on top of a radiator for a few hours having dosed it with some wd40 then unscrew. it is a normal thread ie unscrews anti clockwise.
regards david

Hi,

Further to my last e-mail, I have a question, how does the base remove. The locking mechanism opens but it doesnt seem to want to unscrew, does it need a tap with a bit of wood and hammer or have I missed something.

I did look at the faq blog but that only seemed to deal with the locking mech and had me totally confused as to why a magnet is needed and what for :)

SIR HUMPHRY DAVY




DAVY'S STATUE AND BIRTHPLACE IN PENZANCE







Apart from the famous lamp, Davy also isolated three elements, alkali metals Sodium (Na), Potassium (K), and Calcium (Ca). He discovered Nitrous Oxide, and its anaesthetic properties, often referred to as "laughing gas." This, when first discovered, was often produced and used by nobility and gentry of the day, much like "recreational drugs" today. Davy was also an accomplished poet, and known to Coleridge, and Byron et al. Davy also travelled extensively through Europe during the Napoleonic wars, such was the respect he commanded at the time for his amazing achievements.
THANKS TO MARTIN ORCHARD FOR THE PHOTOS AND FACTS

lamp identification

the most obvious ommissions are the CT33/33A this was a high candle power lamp from the late 40's and early 50's. it burnt paraffin and was lit by a high tension current in the lamp room. it was intended to compete with electrification of lighting in mines and failed dismally. to be intact it has all the usual items plus a ceramic burner and inner glass.
then their is the MC40 again an oil lamp with ht lighter.
this was developed for manchester collieries, the duke of bridgewater's mines around worsley, manchester.
t
the type 6 deputies relighter lamp was certified for mining use between the great wars.
it became most widely used in the uk from nationalisation in 1947 when it was adopted by the ministry of power as the standard gas testing lamp in uk coal mines.
it has a shut off ring for remote gas testing. the 6rs is basically the same,this was used in the pits in the north east.

in 1964 we prototyped the GR6 which is a modified type 6. this adopted the garforth mechanism for gas testing.
the type 6 began to be replaced by the gr6 and then the gr6s from the mid 60's to the mid 70's. the gr6s is still used in uk mines today.
type 6,6rs , gr6 and gr6s are all flint relighters. as deputies were allowed to relight underground.
the other lamps would be lit by low or ht in the lamp room or at an underground lighting station as workmen are not allowed to relight underground.
sl standing for side lit or workmans lamp. again the 6's have a shut off or garforth mechanism as deputies need to take remote samples underground via a rbber bulb on a long pole. this sample is then injected in to the lamp.
type ai is the garage or utility lamp as opposed to 1a which we built for gpo engineers. this was to test for bad air in tunnels and man holes and is also used by the navy in ships holds and submarines.
we do come accross lamps with different badges and bonnets so beware. hopefully these basic rules will be of use.also meant to say all 6's will have a stainless steel top,a very few are chromed, these were managers lamps and some have brass tops. all three are mines approved although the brass were usually for presentation.
sl's had black iron tops until the mid 60's so should be rusty, from then on stainless steel.
a1 brass and 1a stainless steel.

TYPE 6 DEPUTIES RELIGHTER LAMP

dear daniel,
the type 6 deputies relighter lamp was certified for mining use between the great wars.

SL/WORKMANS LAMP LIGHTING

Dennis Buckenham wrote:
I wonder if you could help me with some information. Following the death of a relative two of your lamps have come into my pocession. I am very interested in trying to trace some history of these lamps. Both the lamps are marked as type SL with an approval no of B120. One has the number 61 stamped on the case and the other has 1814 stamped on it. Both appear to be in very good condition. I believe they ould have been used in the area around Worksop. Would there be any instruction manuals available for these.
As I live in Norfolk any information in my local area is very limited.
Many Thanks
DEAR DENNIS,
THE SL OR SIDE LIT IS A WORKMANS LAMP WHICH WERE IN USE FROM BETWEEN THE WARS TO THE 1990,S.
THEY WERE LIT (BY A LOW VOLTAGE CURRENT THROUGH A PLATINUM WIRE NEXT TO THE WICK) IN THE LAMP ROOM AS WORKMEN CANNOT RELIGHT UNDERGROUND.
WE DO NOT CARRY SPARES FOR THEM NOW OTHER THAN THE WICKS.
REGARDS DAVID MATHER
Dear David,
Thanks for the information. Sorry to be a nuisance but could you possibly answer the following questions.
Does it require a special tool to supply the current or would any low voltage supply do? (if so what voltage is required)
Could normal lamp oil be used in the lamps? (I have checked the lamps and the wicks and all the seals appear new).
I really would like to see them working.
Regards
dear dennis,
its approx 4 volts applied accross the vessel and the glass plate.
you need to make sure all the insulating washers are intact. you can use thin fuse wire in place of the platinum wire.
lamp oil will probably not light with low volt\age.most paraffin lamps used high voltage.
petrol or lighter fuel with a low flash point is best.
good luck.

How do I open the Top on a Protector lamp ?

dear lars,
on the type 6 and gr6s there are 5 fixed brass or steel wires or posts round the glass. next to one is a 6th wire which slides down when the base is unscrewed enabling the top to be unscrewed.

Hello



I have recently bought a Protectors lamp and thanks' to your FAQ have I
managed to open up the bottom part of the lamp.

But is there some locking mechanism to the top part of the lamp, for taking
it apart so that I can clean the inside of the glass?



Kind Regards

TRIMMING WICK REMOVAL

dear pete,
the round wick is approx 1" long and is pushed in to butt up with the long wick from the base which should be left alone.
if you use a small corkscrew or similar you shouild be able to get enough grip to pull it out. if you soak the wick in wd40 it should soften up.
most people use the rare earth magnets from computers you will need about 3 or 4 together.
good luck.
ps if you are still struggling ring us on 0161 789 3013 and speak to andy.

He is around 80 now and has had the lamp as an ornement from 1972!..unused!

lock opening

Thanks David

It appears it wasn't locked after all. A sharp tap with a wooden mallet was
all that was required



dear alan,
the lock is a sprung pin which locates in the fuel filler flap which then
swivels out on a rivet.
rare earth magnets from a computer should do it. the pin tends to get stuck
with coal dust so plenty of wd40 helps.
the threads do get tight once the flap is loose leave it to warm up and try
tapping with a wooden mallet.

fuel filler

I have an old but unused lamp complete with original glass etc. It is a number six with a flint mechanism. I have figured out how to get into it and access the wickand regulate the flame but do not know where to pour the fuel. Can you help
Thank you

the flap that acts as the lock is also the fuel filler cover.


you will see a hole with gauze pour the fuel in there.

service pack

Hi Peter,

What I would recommend is that you buy a service kit off our website. www.protectorlamp.com. This will include everything you need to get it back in to working order, including a service manual. The website will also tell you what kind of fuel you will need for your lamp depending on what model it is; unfortunately, we don't sell fuel.

Yours,
Paul Mather.
