Last weekend I took my 1930's 826 for a camping trip. The old lady passed the test with flying colours. The other people were quite surprised to hear how old thing it really was that provided so good illumination. Here you have couple of pictures, one from out- and one from inside the large army style tent.
Really a sweet lantern. Really does give one a great feeling to have such a nice Vintage lantern that still gives excellant lighting. Superb lantern. But what else could you expect from a Petromax.
I know this feeling verry well, having a PX with you on a camping-trip.
Everybody watches sorrowed or strangely touched this mystical light-machine...especially while Rapid-start... - until it starts to shine, than everybody is impressed and watching stunned... and then you tell them "This one was produced last month, and that one is from the 1930'ies..."
And within 5 minutes two or three pals will ask...."where to buy and how much?":D
Best regards, Björn

it looks like a 821!
That is why I am going to restore some old Hipólito lanterns, to take to my camping base camp.
nice action fotos from your Px, congratulations.
ob das Kompliment bzgl. der Fotos von Finnmax nach 9 Jahren noch registriert wird... ?
