Does anyone have a Falks Beaufort in a collection or have information on the spigot diameter? I'm hopefully getting the Beaufort 25 and just want to check if it fit on a stand I have a P109 on. Cheers

I think all the Beaufort lanterns have the same spigot size and so can fit on a normal diameter column/stand. I can't confirm that however.
I was hoping to get a 25 as well (from the description I was given, that's what it sounded like), however somebody without authorisation (not part of the lighting company) scrapped the lantern along with several other bits.

The spigot diameter is a standard 3"/76mm to fit standard diameter columns.

Thanks for that.
Does anyone know where I could get a Beaufort 3 bowl eather 2nd hand or made up? I like the curved version of this bowl rather that the flat base on the bowl (hopefully you know what I mean).
I'm hopefully getting the 25 and am I right in assuming, that the 3s bowl is a straight swap?

Has anyone seen or know of any Hume Atkins E5890 or similar Beauforts 25 or 3 in Situ?

It appears they are now gone now. I was thinking about saving one of these lanterns.

Task and a half yes. It just so happens these are my favorites. Only problem is is they are rare and often private install which hopefully means there be a few around.
I do have the Beaufort 25 in Matheson Place in mind with South Fife dragging their heals, so would appreciate any help anyone can offer getting being it a rare public install. There was 2, with one gone, so very keen to stop the 2nd going scrap
