Custom Work

VITRI-FORMS, Inc. (Brattleboro, VT, USA). This small firm specializes in borosilicate custom glass fabrication, and appear very nice to deal with. They have a $25 minimum order, but item pricing for custom chimneys seems reasonable. I'm sure a stronger recommendation will follow with more personal experience!

Alex is making replacement flame spreaders for several UK lamps. He has an ever increasing selection. Pictures of these parts appear at the hotlink below, Note that some of these lamp brands come in multiple sizes. As Alex cannot do exchanges, he needs to know for certain which model you have. Determination of this may take a few e-mails to be correct Marrack spreaders

Miles Stair's Wick (and Chimney) Shop Miles is a lamp collector with a passion for getting lamps operating. Frustrated with the lack of current replacements available for the old "consumables", he has contracted with several well-known makers for smaller runs of wicks and chimneys specifically made to fit a variety of lamps. As these aren't "commercial runs", the prices may seem high, but all the products meet original specs (size, thickness, diameter, density, etc.), and as order quantities increase, over time prices will come down.
Note the web site is Mile's complete site, commercial and collection. Use the index to get to wicks and chimneys.
