I have a fairly nice, but somewhat cantankerous E.& J. burner...maybe for this asking price someone would want to fight with it and make it crank up the wick. I don't have the time nor the patience to screw with it, so replaced it with a repop. Asking $65,plus shipping, they go for $149 in the catalogue.
PM or call/text 419-271-5405. I do my best to keep track of first callers on down.
BTT & FWIW other than needing a little work for the "crank" action of the wick (better wick?) this burner looks like new. If all you want is "something" to look at, this is a deal!
Sold! He who hesitates is lost! ;)
Thanks Phillip & MTFCA
Now that you sold it, Tim, I can say this: FWIW, most of the trouble that guys have with the lamps' wick adjusters occurs because the new wicks being sold are 1/2" wide. The correct wick is 7/16". I have a few sets of the correct stuff if anybody's interested.
