It often happens that suddenly the electricity is cut off, and there are no paraffin candles at hand. In this case, the oil lamp will be the best solution.

In order to make a lamp on oil, we need: 1. Old light bulb (You can buy a new one). 2. A set of tools. 3. Cotton wick. 4. Steel wire. 5. Syringe. 6. Olive oil. First you need to prepare a light bulb for further action. For this we need to make a hole in the base for wiring. It is enough to hook the projected contact of the lamp with pliers and pull it. After you have removed the epoxy resin (black polymer around the contact) and everything that is inside the light bulb, you should get such a glass blank.

Next we measure the necessary length of the cotton wick .To check the wick for suitability, it's just enough to set it on fire.If it gives loose ash, If it starts to turn into plastic, then this wick will not work for us. So, we measure the wick so that it completely sinks to the bottom of the lamp and leaves it about an centimeter.
