That's better !

I can see PTFE tape in the first picture, did you have to re-seal the jet?

I reckon from a photographic point of view the carbide lamp is superb for some nice warm lighting and deffo worth the faff, I also remember being in a mine with a lad using a carbide cap lamp, it was interesting to say the least..goodbye eyebrows :)

I meant the form of the flame in pic one, nicely wide

Yeah there's some overpriced rubbish out there.

That bike light looks ok without it's hideous lens. Nice handle on it as well.

I quite like the lens from an aesthetic point of view, may be crap for mine lighting purposes but it'll look good on the lamp when its not being used.

One thing I did overlook on first check was the metal tape painted black which you can just make out in pic 1 above. Underneath the tape was four 0.5cm corrosion holes. Someone had had the bright idea to tape it up and colour it in with permanent marker :crazy

Still, explains why I got it so cheap with my best offer. Five minutes later with the rest of my plumbers weld used up it's sealed and safe.

Leave the gimp some negative feedback for not being honest, might stop him doing it to the next person.
