I keep all wicks in stock all year for those who want to be prepared for winter in advance. I ship wicks worldwide and in fact have the best list and selection of wicks for heaters sold in Europe, Australia and Scandinavia.
In 2005 I noticed that except for Rayo lamps, wicks for center draft lamps had not been made since before WW II. I purchased many Victorian Era lamps of various sizes, measured original wicks, tested new wicking for diameter, thickness and capillary action, and had the full range of center draft wicks made by Hattersley in England. Proper Victorian Era center draft chimneys had not been manufactured since the Depression, so after considerable testing I had the best samples replicated in borosilicate glass.Many larger sizes of flat wicks for European Kosmos lamps had also been unobtainable for decades so I had them made by Hattersley after testing for weave, thickness and capillary action in my own collection of lamps.The proper chimneys for many Kosmos lamps had also not been made since the 1930’s, so I had them made from borosilicate glass.Student lamps made from 1875 through WW I did not have good chimneys available, so I had them made.The old sad iron heaters similarly had not had new wicks available since before WW II, so after testing thickness, width, and capillary action I also had them made.Kindler wicking for gravity-fed stoves made by Boss, Florence and many other stoves from before WW II had not been readily available so I carry the full line of kindler wicking.
