This is the one for the lazy decorator: if you can’t be bothered to move your blowlamp back & forth across the wall when you’re stripping paint, just light up this one, and it’ll strip the whole wall at once….!!

The title of this piece is taken from the name of the classic "Monitor" blowlamp, but (don't tell anyone!) this one is actually based on a "Buflam" blowlamp, manufactured by Chas. Twigg & Co - hence the alternative title!

Materials: brass, copper, shell cases, "Buflam" parafin blowlamp, Enots "Autoram" grease gun
Dimensions: 20" x 15" x 15" (56cm x 38cm x 38cm)
Weight: 25lb (11kg)

This piece was displayed at the "Manifestation" Art Exhibition at Steampunk Doncaster.
