Kerosene Flashlight Upgrade

It so happened in the old village houses that even the most unnecessary and completely outdated thing could by no means be thrown away, but was carried away “out of sight”, in the hope that someday it would be useful. And it was useful. After all, an old electric lamp on a porch of a country house turned out from an old kerosene lamp. You can, of course, buy in the store ready, but there is something subtlely attractive in the forms of old things. Yes, and a home-made piece of furniture will emphasize your individuality favorably. You will need: • the lamp itself • a light bulb (better energy saving, it heats up less) • an electric cartridge for a light bulb
• wire • a piece of tin or plywood • some nitro-enamel for painting • several self-tapping screws • 3-4 hours of free time First you need to take the flashlight apart. Carefully remove the glass and the part on which it rests on the bottom edge.

When final assembly, first place the light bulb inside the glass bulb. Then insert them together into the body of the lantern.Then slightly lift the glass and, slowly, using the gap formed under the glass, screw the bulb into the cartridge. The lamp is ready.
