Series number "UBG-9" is an unbraided fiberglass wick. This wick measures a somewhat flat 1/8" plus/minus and consists of stranded fibers.

Series number "UBG-250" is an unbraided fiberglass wick. This wick measures a somewhat round 1/8" plus/minus and consists of stranded fibers.

Wick diameters are approximates. Some designs will "expand" slightly after coming off of the knitters or braiders used to make the wick. Fiberglass wicks being in-organic last longer than cotton, paper and wool wicks. Fiberglass wicks are made out of fiberglass yarns that are either braider or knitted.

The NUMBER ONE PROBLEM with those new to designing oil lamps is that they forget to take into consideration the ventilation of the fuel. The lamp lights up strong then fades out after about 30 seconds. The initial response is that they perceive the wick to be defective, which is NOT the case. You have created a vacuum in the fuel cylinder. The fuel container has to be vented.

We suggest that those new to working with fiberglass request a sample pack for sizing. Packs are pre-assembled sent via US Postal Service.

Spools are weighed and yield tested prior to shipment.
Restocking and shipping  fees apply to returned products.
