Flint housing for miners lamp

£15.00

For Protector Type 6, GR6S, 6RS miners lamps. The flint housing, as its name suggests holds the flint and spring, it is screwed into the brass lug on the glass plate, on one side the flint is pushed against the flint wheel and on the other side it is fitted with the flint housing cap to retain the spring. It has an oversized thread in comparison to the thread in the lug. This is so it tightens up when installed so as not to come loose whilst in use.
