Welcome to this blog post on how to light the Classic Wolfard Oil Lamp! As you may know, the Wolfard Glassblowing Company has been crafting beautiful oil lamps since 1972. These lamps are handcrafted from borosilicate glass and are known for their durability and beauty. In this post, we will guide you through the steps to properly light your Wolfard oil lamp.
Step 1: Add Oil
The first step is to add oil to your lamp. We recommend using our high-quality, Wolfard Lamp Oil Fuel, which is both clean-burning and odorless. Avoid using kerosene or other fuels that can produce harmful fumes or smoke. Make sure to fill the lamp with the recommended amount of oil, which can be found in the instructions that came with your lamp.
Step 2: Prepare the wick
Before lighting the lamp, you'll need to prepare the wick. To prepare the wick, make sure the top of the wick is flush with the top bulbous part of the glass wick holder. This will help ensure a steady flame and prevent smoking. If the wick is dirty or damaged, replace it before use.
Step 3: Soak the wick
Soak the wick in the oil for a few minutes before lighting it. Simply place the glass wick holder with wick inside the full oil reservoir. This will help the wick absorb the oil and make it easier to light. Make sure the wick is fully saturated with oil before lighting it. This should take around 5 minutes.
Step 4: Light the wick
Using a long match or long, BBQ lighter, light the top of the wick. Hold the flame to the wick until it catches fire.
Step 5: Enjoy your lamp
Congratulations! Your Wolfard oil lamp is now lit and ready to use. Enjoy the warm glow and beautiful ambiance that it provides. Remember to always keep an eye on the lamp when it's lit and keep it away from flammable objects.
In conclusion, lighting a Wolfard oil lamp is a simple process that can bring joy and beauty to any space. By following these steps and using the recommended oil and wick, you can ensure a safe and enjoyable experience. Thank you for choosing Wolfard Glassblowing Company, and happy lighting!
