    Where can I buy replacement parts for an old kerosene lamp? I brought home one of my Granny's old kerosene lamps and the metal parts are starting to rust through.

    Can I use it with the rusty parts and do I need to replace the wick before using?

    For replacement parts I have found that either ebay or www.oillampman.com have everything that you might need. For wick there is also a guy named Dennis Hearn at www.oillamp.com that carries good cotton wicks at a reasonable price. He is located in NYC.

    Thanks! I've bid on some parts at Ebay and I'll check Wal Mart tomorrow since I need to force myself to go run errands in town. I'll also check out the online places (I'd much rather do my shopping online).

    www.antiquelampsupply.com/category/140

    This company has: burners; globes and wicks; etc.. There are other parts and supplies but too much to list here. Best site I have found on the web. It seems to be a good place to buy hard to find parts. NJ Rich
