I always wondered how they worked. Very cool and simple. I wouldn't want be using one in a mine if they hit a methane pocket though.

Elbertson,

For that they had fine meshed copper cages around the lamp, wich apparently cooled the initial flame down immediatly. It just made 'plopp' and went out.

I haven't seen one of those in years. They are useful when there is no electricity or batteries, but do seem dangerous in a mine with coal dust.

Cars used to use big ones as headlights. The flame was behind glass and protected from the wind and rain.
