How do you set up an alcohol lamp?
    #2616649 - 04/29/04 04:00 PM (16 years, 9 months ago)

I know this is a really simple question but...

Should I soak the wick in the alcohol and then fill up the lamp? Or is soaking the wick beforehand unnecessary?


In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.

You just fill up the lamp, the wick will soak up the fuel itself.

Not needed. Just give it a minute or two for the alch to soak into the wick.
