Vintage Carbide Miners Lamps
Just getting started on this page, more to come soon.


This page is dedicated to these brilliant little devices that use calcium carbide mineral and water to produce acetylene gas which fuels the lamps. The caclcium carbide fuel can be obtained by some suppliers online, though I can provide a few ounces with purchase of any lamp to get you started. I would have to ship it by UPS, as it is not permitted to ship by postal service.


As usual, I bought too many of these and need to get rid of most of them now. Most are in working condition, but have not necessarily been tested, though I can test one if you are interested in buying and using it.
