Bought this wick lantern couple years ago on one of my visits to Mexico and I was in an old ferretería (hardware store) and saw this and was a MUST HAVE so I decided to grab one and pay. 

These “Cachimbas” were made before by local blacksmith, you had to bring a tin milk can with a metal lid (leche Nido were popular back then). I remember my grandmother had two or three of these and a couple of oil lamps (this were a luxurious item back then) so I brought one to California. 

second phone is in a restaurant at Delano CA  


Since we are in wick Wednesday’s I want to ask where to order a wick for this? 


thanks

I would say try Miles Stair, he seems to have wicks for almost anything and if he doesn't have it he can probably make one.  Email him pictures and measurements and I am sure he can help you.

That’s a neat little wickie, Pancho. Nice to have something that helps keep those family memories fresh.

Here’s a link to WT Kirkman’s replacement wicks. Not sure if any of these are the size you need?

You can probably roll a 1" flat wick to make a round one.

I remember those lamps from my days in Old Mexico. I also remember some that still had the Leche Nido label painted on them!
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

I used to make a similar lamp from empty brake fluid cans when they were metal. I'm a big fan of primitive useful things and how to make them in a pinch.

Those were the ones used for a cachimba, the blacksmith just had to braze a spigot in the lid, braze a handle and call it good. Back then things were very simple and easy to replace and today’s is a pain in the a$$. I’m not that old (36 years old) but my childhood was off grid and we lived like that until 20 years ago. I still love my father’s village and when I go there I don’t want to leave it behind 😢  Click image for larger version - Name: B4A881E5-6859-4852-BC89-4130F6E59574.jpeg, Views: 36, Size: 193.38 KB
