How to make cosmos-brenner oil lamp battery operated light

nam65May 9, 2012

I have a German Ships Light that I would like to change from oil to electric or battery LED .

The oil lamp is a brass Kosmos Brenner.I would like to unscrew the lamp from the oil storage base and replace with a electric or battery unit.

Any info would be helpful...Thanks

Especially show the oil storage area and the oil burner area. You might be able to slide a battery into the storage area and run wires to a small LED in the old burner area.

Before you drill holes in the lamp, check its antique/collector value. I would be inclined to make only conversions that are reversible.

You may be able to use parts from an LED lantern. The electronic circuits would be ready made.
