TysyTube Restoration : subscribe to my wife youtube channel here:

Kpopahjussi63 : But how will RD recognize it now that you took his name off? LOL.

Benjamin D Minor : If they made this today it would be out of wheelie bin plastic what a shame we live in a world where nothing is quality.

Farmatore 324 : The silence in yours videos is relaxing

aeromedical67 : For all you people out there suggesting he put an LED light bulb instead of the original type incandescent—WHY? It’s a restoration and intended to be a conversation piece. He’s not taking this out to find somebody’s lost dog in the middle of the night. Pimping it out to modern day technology totally defeats the purpose of the restoration.

Abbas Karanaz : your gloves in this video is really safety and secure.

paultrial : 26:58 romanian spotted!

EA Jam : Great gloves

Breadfruit Juice : YouTube needs to stop with the damn mattress commercials. I swear, you look at ONE mattress and it's all day with these people. Awesome video by the way :-)

Shawn Shawn : No sandblast? :( I love sandblast I love the paint tho <3

ZOMBIE FOX GAME : Maybe the inside should be silver so it reflects the light to the red light I have similar light to this and inside is chromed.

MidnightVisions : This is a mining lantern, and I'm surprised you an still buy batteries for it. They cost roughly 20 euros in France, 60 euros on Germany. A flat o-ring gasket for the glass should have been available from a machine supply. Nicely done.

Stuart G. Australia. : I so badly wanted to put that through my sand blaster for you, it would have gotten into all the nooks and crannies and given the surface a good “key” for the paint. It may have been easier to just use an “O” ring for the lens gasket. You can get them in a square profile as well. Great work. Love theses videos as they inspire more people to do restorations. As to the colour? It’s your lamp so you can paint it whatever colour you want! Look forward to seeing your next job.

Age of Doom : Great, beautifull!! Now get a XML Led and a 18650 pack battery

SHUBHAM PRAMANIK : Pretty Good Job So Far. :D

soothsayer1 : should have used LED bulb

Abdulaziz Salam : 10:07 Yeah exactly! Great video as always 👍👍

FloW WolF : Lucky they had taken the battery out before it sat. Awesome.

Franz Otto : eine sehr gute Arbeit, das richtige Video zu meinem Geburtstag: danke ☺☺☺ a very good job, the right video for my birthday: thank you ☺☺☺

logan nasty : Reminds me a visit to the dentist

michael wyles : I like it just how it was made to be, Like you restored it just in a color of your choice. Excellent Sir.

MAX - BIKE FR : Un français dans la restauration cool ; )

Gran Autismo : Ahhh they don’t make em like they used to. All plastic and cheap alluminum now.

creativeanimelover 34 : Those are some nice red large gloves

0peppers : Felicitari. Ai facut o treaba buna. :)

SOFYSoOo : How do you figure out the way to disassembly every single part man :D ?

TroubleMcTrouble : sure it may not be as bright as the modern LED ones, but I love it. It's got a warmth to the light the modern ones don't have and it's beautiful to look at. PLUS you've saved something from being scrapped and resurrected it back to it's original use. 11/10 from me! :)

Narsingh Engg.workshop : Nice

g2macs : I bet whoever had to use this thing had one arm longer than the other.....may as well lug around a car battery.

Adam Clarke : Another great restoration. I was looking at the red lens, and I have a tip for you if you want to make them look new. I carefully wet sand them with 2000 grit wet and dry paper, and then I polish them with a really good quality aluminium polish. They come up like new. I've even done this on clear plastic lenses as well as coloured ones, and they are perfect. Just a thought for you in the future, if you're interested.

Rentta : This could have been really interesting restomod using led's and li-ion or lipo batteries. Anyhow great job :)

Tyler Snyder : Great work. Now this may sound like harrassy but I would have put an LED bulb in it, but I understand if you just want the old time appeal. They make LED's to convert standard incandescent lights and I'm sure they make one that would fit this.

Seif Al-hinai : Wow nice

asimo sss : Another great restoration!!! :) It would be really interesting if you could find any videos of the original items you restore being sold or used back when they were first made ... :)


Tom Langley : I have one exactly like this in almost excellent condition bought from a GoodWill store in Florida for a mear $3. Research indicates this is a French RailRoad Lantern from the 1910s.

Bruce Boschek : Beautiful workmanship. Thank you.

alfredbbp : super nice!!!!

john westermark : cool.

adam řehůřek : Led bulb would be better, but anyway, good job.

بلال النوري : This Light sea nice is this assume this classic light sea 👌👌👌👌👌

Quentin Hennart : Belle restauration, bravo :)

David Lopez : Very Nice Restoration

Pranab Bhatta : Creative person 😆

Abdul Razzaq : Good wark

Marilyn Bermudez : Nice job the lamp works well.

Александр Barbados_BY : Ничего сверх естественного ты не сделал. Что взял целый фонарь почистил и покрасил (и то коряво)? Может для вас европейцев безруких это реставрация, то для русских это дети уже делают. В чем у тебя были тут трудности? Мозгов прокладку вырубить у тебя не хватило (ножницами за камерой вырезал), даже герметик намазал на стекло что его черный цвет виден. Сверху под черной ручкой видно что ты заклеивал малярным скотчем. Реставрация это когда соблюдение всех деталей! Просто лажа, по вашему это фэйк. Подделка. Ну хоть баллончиком с краской научился пользоваться. Просто смех, а не работа.... Большой и жирный минус. Это только детям до 5 лет показывать.

judahmicah1#2 #2 : Your gloves are great ;)

EA Jam : Where do you get all these old rusty stuff ??

Ovidiu Sora : hei esti roman
