I have been using oil lamps for over a decade and up til now always thought that the lamp wicks were an aspect of the system that was dependable. Not much difference between the wicks I have used, and never a problem with them. Until now, that is. While the wicks that came with the double burner lamp were fine, the pack of extra 1 1/16 wide wicks I purchased are poorly made somehow. The material crumbles very easily as opposed to remaining tightly woven. This makes for a poor flame quality as well as rendering trimming of the wicks virtually impossible. Lehman's should be testing the quality of their wicks before selling them to their customers.
Lehman's says: Thanks for letting us know. We're so sorry for your experience and are looking into this issue. Please give us a call, so we can make it right: 1-800-438-5346.

Thanks to Lehman's for having these oddball size wicks available!
