When mounting instruments it would be a great help to use a template for positioning and marking the screw holes:
In the VION section you will find templates for A80 and A100 wall mounts.
In the Clausen section you will find a template for the Wall mount 605099.

A little about our quartz clocks: Insert the battery in the battery compartment orientated + to + and - to -.
When setting the time always check whether or not there's an arrow indicating which direction the adjusting knob should be turned. If there's no arrow you can turn it in both directions.
All Delite quartz-clocks need no adjusting. The 10ppm quartz crystal has a maximum time deviation of ±6 minutes per year.
Please remember to remove the old and used battery. Always remove the battery before storing the clock. All batteries not to be used must be delivered to the recycling station.

Hvordan fjerner man lakken fra f.eks. en messingolielampe?
Dengang M. Jensen Skibshandel i Århus eksisterede blev der herfra anbefalet følgende produkt:
Nitro Mors paint and varnish remover. På nettet kan yderligere oplysninger søges!

Følgende råd fra Aagesen i Randers:
Hvis man efter at have klippet vægen i rundbrænderen stadig ikke har en helt ensartet rund flamme, kan man med et ø2mm 50cm langt ståltråd (cykel-eger el. lignende) mens olielampen er tændt med brænderglasset på, stikke tråden ned og forsigtigt trykke vægen ned de steder hvor flammen er for høj.
Herved opnås en ensartet flammehøjde hele vejen rundt.

Hvilken lampeolie skal du fylde på olielampen?
Vi anbefaler lugtfri petroleum (tysk: Geruchlos Petroleum, engelsk: odorless kerosene).

Ugebladet Ingeniøren fra 8. januar 2010 havde i "Spørg scientariet" lidt om forbrændingsprocessen omkring et stearinlys. Klik på link'et herunder og læs mere om flammepunkt og antændelsesgrænser:
