The Type 6 is a flame safety lamp used for gas testing in coal mines. This miners lamp will safely burn methane/firedamp without causing an explosion. Protector Type 6 lamps emerged in 1929, these are lamps with a flint ignition device which in the prototype was activated by rotating the reservoir. However, an improved flint lighter was designed which used a striker key and was much simpler in construction. This one is in working order and was used by the previous owner.
I was very happy with my purchase from Orakei Objet. As the purchase was sent to me, I totally relied on their honesty. It was exactly as described and photographed on their Website. They are thoroughly professional in their dealings. It was packed very well and delivered quickly. I would be very happy to buy again. Many thanks. Gary
