Lamps and Lamp Oil From Ed Collard

Joey, I also count on oil lamps and candles during blackouts and sometimes  just for the ambiance. I would like to caution folks to be aware of the oil that they use. This is a sample of a safer oil in regards to fires

  1. Ed- Where can you get this lamp oil?

    Ed – where can we purchase this lamp oil? I have a ‘dancing candle’ that needs some.
    thx in advance.

    Spending summers (as a kid) on a Sebago, ME 100 acre farm with no electricity, no running water and a two seater out-house in the barn (across the road) we developed a great respect and appreciation for kerosene lamps! It also was a great experience – learning how to live sans our regular amenities. I often wonder if folks today would appreciate the peace & interaction achieved from time spent in this type of situation….

    Ace Hardware in Rockport had it last year. Jay Smith is very aware of the fire hazards relating to oil lamps and stocked this oil. H.A., the farm that I use to go to in Me. had a three-seater!

    Thanks Ed. I’m going to look for this. I burn oil & candles a lot & always have sand in big coffee cans real close by in case anything goes wrong. I guess a fire extinguisher would do the trick. Don’t know why I thought of sand. Well, thanks anyway. It’s good info.
