Lets make an emergency candle in case the lights go out for a bit.
You will need a Ball jar plus an extra used lid, short half pint. a Coleman lamp wick, liquid paraffin or mineral oil, a 1/2 wood chisel, and a lamp cover.
I'm using the ball short half pint jars. As of yet Congress hasn't repealed the law of gravity. If you get the regular half pint jars the oil will not be drawn up all the way to the top of the wick as the fuel is used up. Your flame will get smaller until it goes out with about half the fuel left. I bought everything but the fuel from Walmart. Walmart doesn't have paraffin oil. They have mineral oil which is really pure kerosene. The paraffin oil produces very little, if any smoke, the mineral oil much more. The glass covers are lamp shades for a ceiling fan and are used to defuse the light some and protect the flame from drafts and inadvertent touching. WARNING all part may get hot, the lamp cover very hot!
