Hello, I just bought a Koehler 289-1A lamp and need help with what size flint it uses and where to get one.
I`ve tried regular Zippo lighter flints but they are way to small and tip back and forth in the hole.
Is there a larger flint that this lamp needs or is there something missing in the hole where the flint goes.
I have a diagram of the striker and the screw and spring look to be correct.
Any help appreciated.
Lenn

Not much activity around here, in case someone else is looking I found that Dunhill red flints work they are 3mm in diameter.
But it still won`t spark the flint wheel is worn badly so will search for a place to get one of those.

I have had success with the Flint's from torch strikers.

Thanks for the reply, yep I was just looking at those today and your right they look about right.
I found a striker on ebay that might be here tomorrow so we`ll see how it works with the Dunhill flints.

They usually twist out pretty easy
