Evening team. So I’ve assembled this motley crew of lamps to see what can be done with them. Previously, I’ve had a go at dismantling the one in the foreground; but I think instead of grinding off the small rivet heads, it may be preferable to drill them out using teeny-tiny drill bits.
This selection includes brands such as Ever Ready, Berec (which I believe was a UK subsidiary of Ever Ready), Vesta and erm, the black one. Which I can‘t quite decipher; possibly ‘Lanlite’?
Tomorrow I’ll aim to get one dismantled, blasted and straightened. I would have done so today, but I made an unplanned purchase, and then ended up going to collect a... 1976 Puch Pirate! Yeah, me neither . It turns out to be an Austrian version of a Raleigh Commando, complete with dimpled chain guard etc. It’s gone straight into my boneyard for now, but this is what it looks like:-
See you tomorrow
