The Carbide Miners Lamp - Bringing History Back to Life!
Before mine shafts had electricity, miners wore calcium carbide lamps on their helmets to light the darkness. Craig Beals from Beals Science finds a Carbide Miner's Lamp at his grandma's house that hasn't been lit since 1938, give or take a few years! He uses science, some carbide, and acetylene gas to get the miners lantern working again and bring history back to life!

Auto Lite Calcium Carbide Miner's Lamp
I made this video to show how a calcium carbide lamp functions. I noticed after viewing this that I replaced the wingnut that retains the reflector on backwards, but it doesn't matter to the operation of the lamp. For those curious, when I first got this fixed and working, I placed enough calcium carbide to fill the bottom about a third full, and filled the water tank all the way. This amount of fuel, burning with a 1-2 inch flame, lasted over 90 minutes. In complete darkness less flame would be needed, maybe just a half inch, and with a full load of calcium carbide would likely last at least three hours, probably more. Before you ask, this lamp is not for sale. I am giving it to someone special. Thank you for watching.

If you know more, like for example who made them, please let me know in the comments! According to commenter Pål Hembre these were made by the Gun House, 54 Stearns st., Waltham., Mass. 02154.

Sid's Davey Lamp and Keyring
Sid tells us about his Davey lamp and Keyring. This year it is 30 years since the 1984 miners’ strike, which opposed the government’s policy of pit closures. Artists collective Re-Dock and Internet of Things expert Adrian McEwen worked with the ex-mining community in St.Helens to create an interactive exhibition of enchanted objects, telling the story of the past 30 years. Throughout a series of creative workshops we asked the men and women of the ex-mining community in St. Helens to share and curate a selection of objects to describe their experience of the past 30 Years. We used these objects as a focal point to discuss the strike, to evoke memories and to explore how things have changed since then. The project was commissioned by St. Helens Arts Service as part of the second Cultural Hubs programme and is supported by public funding from the Arts Council of England.

Carbide Caving Lamp
CAUTION: OPEN FLAME TYPE EXPERIMENT AND EQUIPMENT DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME! Example of a calcium carbide lamp as used in cave exploring or spelunking. This is a "British Made" Premier lamp that I had stored away with some caving equipment I used in my youth. I thought it might be of interest to anyone curious about acetylene lamps. These caving head lamps are good basic examples of acetylene lamps used about 100 years ago. Back then, an automobile might have been equipped with acetylene headlamps, hoses would run to an acetylene generator, perhaps on the running board. The acetylene generator would be a bigger version of the parts found in a caving head lamp and the operation would basically be the same. I forgot to mention the fun part, clean-up. After you're done, you have to take everything apart, clean out the spent carbide,wash everything off and make sure everything is well dried before putting it away. It's part of the charm of carbide lamps. Everything's so much easier with electric lamps! P.S. This is my first youtube video, so it's a bit rough,, sort of a "learning vehicle"

The Carbide Lamp, Gary J
The Carbide Lamp was one of the first dependable portable light sources. It was invented around 1845 by the Justrite Co. It was really your first flashlight or lantern that didn't blow out like candles or oil lamps. With no batteries or bulb it ran off acetylene gas creating a flame. Miners, hunters, fisherman use them. Also bicycles, motorcycles, and cars use these as a light source.

How to assemble and light a carbide drip lamp
I had been searching for one of these for years since doing some tunnel work in the West. With help from Andy, I found out how these work, how they get plugged (thanks Andy) and that it produces one of the purest lights I have seen.. It also is a great example of how reactive materials can produce a gas - nature working for man. Should you have a wet hand and grab the fuel.....well that is very exciting. Very cool.

Carefully remove glass globe from kerosene lantern. 2. Unscrew and remove the old kerosene wick from the lantern. 3. Drill a 3/8-inch hole in the base of the lantern to serve as an exit point for the electrical cord. 4. Put a piece of scrap wood in a vise. 5. Drill out center portion where the wick used to fit through using the hole saw. 6. Take a rubber hose, spray it with lubricant and push the electrical wire through it. The hose will serve as strain relief for the electrical wire. 7. Bring the electrical wire through the 3/8-hole in base and up into the center hole. 8. Strip off an inch of insulation from the electrical wire using wire stripper. 9. Attach both exposed copper ends to screws on the bottom of the light socket; tighten them down. 10. Insulate the connection with electrical tape. 11. Place the socket into the center hole of the lantern. Screw in the lightbulb. 12. Return the glass globe to its place in the lantern. 13. About 18 inches down the electrical wire, cut one of the two wires in half, exposing the copper inside. 14. Place both pieces of the wire into the bottom portion of the lamp-switch housing, dividing the two wires by the center hole. 15. Push the top portion of the lamp-switch housing onto both wires. Two pieces of metal should pierce the cut wire, touching the copper inside. 16. Screw down the housing. 17. Take the disconnected end of the electrical wire and run it through the plug cap. 18. Bottom out the wire into the pronged end of the plug. 19. Clamp down the prongs and secure the cap. 20. Plug in the lantern and enjoy!

Carbide Lamp for Mining and Caving
Applications of calcium carbide include manufacture of acetylene gas, and for generation of acetylene in carbide lamps; manufacture of chemicals for fertilizer; and in steelmaking. Calcium carbide is produced industrially in an electric arc furnace from a mixture of lime and coke at approximately 2200 °C.[5] This method has not changed since its invention in 1892: This reaction was an important part of the industrial revolution in chemistry, and was made possible in the USA as a result of massive amounts of inexpensive hydroelectric power produced at Niagara Falls before the turn of the 20th century.[7] 12 Mornings by Audionautix is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Artist: http://audionautix.com/

Carbide Cap Lamps and Generators lighting the way with Acetylene
In this age of LED lights and smart phones it is easy to forget some of the magic of older technologies, The best example I can think of it the carbide light! Using calcium carbide and water to produce acetylene this amazing chemical reaction lit up the world! Many a mile of cave passage and tons of ore came to light under these lights before they were surpassed by electric ones. While their day may have passed I still like to drag em out and fire them up every now and then. Parts for cap lamps are still around check out Bob and Bob http://www.4bobandbob.com/
