Thanks Guys for your advice to me you are all very knowledgeable ...and so helpfull ... I used my Pmax for the first time today in the UK
we have crown green bowling here... so the lamp was hung up in the bowls hut from the roof apex... bowlers could come inside for a warm out of the cold wind ... all were amazed and impressed with the heat/ light it emitted. We won our cup match hey by 1 point..
Being a newbie I post my first question to all the " petromaxologists " I am the proud owner of an ex Bundewehr
HK 500 lamp.which I have serviced to the best of my ability and is working just fine giving great heat and light
beyond my wildest expectations ... now I have a radiator heat baffle plate which fits snugly below the mantle ...
mmm!..... it kind of blocks a bit the heat from the " soft start " cup... I prefer to use methylated spirit to start rather
than the built in " flame rapid tube " ... I would like to remove this heat plate and would like to know if it
is safe to do so ,, and if it has to stay what is its purpose ? I only use my lamp for light only... I am burning paraffin
oil or regular kerosene .. all the best to all
