Re: CP-100 cleaner/polisher

I believe that kerosene and naphtha are not the same even though they could be used as fuel for lamps, they are not chemically the same. Naphtha is very volatile and flashes quickly whereas kerosene is not (I have used heaters fuelled with kersone, and it is more oily and smells different too). I h...

Was worried about this extended lockdown pandemic nastiness calling for us, i.e. - the non-essential businesses to stay closed down after Jan. 11th until Feb.8th.

This is what I found at Alouette yesterday, tested OK. Slight difference in the prefix of the coil number, but that usually means little and can be worked around.

In need of the coil with sleeve, the front hold down and plunger (kind like the hole thing)
will buy the complete unit
A part number or coil specs may help, maybe even a picture.

"As usual", yes - well I tried. I did try to create some of the conditions necessary for ringing in the new year, but it was more about wringing out the last one.
