Vintage Mining Lantern and Battery Restoration
I recovered this classic mining light from East Germany, DDR. It’s very corroded as well as the battery is completely dead. I got this remarkable looking lantern pair months earlier from a flea market.
I started with disassembly. Surprisingly the battery had actually dripped within the lantern however none of the fluid seemed to find out which was an outstanding indication. all the seals were in good problem despite of the rust on the body.
You can locate extra information about them from here: https://laser.w2m.fi/?lang=en The laser will burn old paint and corrosion as well as leave tidy surface area to be painted or bonded and so on
. I applied base coat, and also either red or black paint as well as finished with auto 2K clear coat. A great deal of times 1K paint of clear layer will certainly not last in use or if you splash oil or gas on it
All the small bits were blacked with gun blue as well as oiled to make certain they won’t rust right away. I re-used the old cords. they were on suitable problem as well as most significantly they were made to secure the battery as well as fit area so the fluid will not leak to the top part of the light when it’s transformed upside down.
I wish you delight in the video clip as high as I delighted in making it. Thanks for viewing!
