I have to wonder how many workers have been maimed or killed in this facility in Pakistan or possibly India. Seems to be no safety protocols at all. Some of these guys are wearing sandals.

In my experience, no. While there may be a wickie out there with a borosilicate globe most that I've seen have globes that aren't. But wickie globes also get plenty hot. I'm not sure what kind of glass they're made of.

Re: Dual -Fuel Usage!

Pull the generator apart and replace the cardboard tube with brass mesh, copper wire or bronze wool. Run any fuel you want. Hell add a preheater cup and run kerosene and diesel as well. Diesel takes more preheat than kero though. Clean the generator as needed. The lantern won't care about ethanol or...

I also would recommend DNA. One other thing I have not seen mentioned is make sure that the tip cleaner lever is in the down position. If not it could cause pressure to build up in the generator and cause it to rupture The 639 doesn't have a separate tip cleaner. When the valve knob is in the fully...

I use 91% fairly often but I have wick material in all my cups in case I need to preheat with kerosene. If you have fiberglass insulation in your house get a small wad of it and stuff the preheater cup. Also you can use that 639 to see if you got ripped off on your moonshine. Good shine will work as...
