Step 2: How to Break the Bulb...

We have to break the bottom and the inner of the bulb....
So we will need:
1) Safety Glasses
2) Safety Gloves
3) Pliers and some allen keys

Be very Careful not to break the bulb its extremely fragile ...

Step 3: Explode the nozzle...

As you can see the nozzle has its own ready-made hole and there is a second component of which will pass the wick and it screws onto the nozzle head...as shows in the next step...

Step 4: Cleaning the bulb...

Thank you for posting. I really like the finished look of the lamp. I was wondering if you could explain the process of breaking the bottom of the bulb. THank you.

Thanks a lot...this nozzle is from what you describe my friend...!!!!
Nice work, There's a few light bulb lamps around but that nozzle is particularly nicely done.

You say it comes from a "Burner Motor"? I'm guessing you mean a "Stirling Engine" which uses a spirit burner as an external combustion source?

Just broke the black glass at the bottom and hit the rest smoothly with an allen or a screwdriver....
I will upload more pics with this step.....
