This was covered, in part, on a recent thread re: lamp oil
. I'm posting
this here so as to not hijack the other thread and perhaps make it easier to find in future searches.
A poster gave their recommendation on trimming a simple wick, to wick, no sharp edges and a gentle curve. This I'll try on one of my oil
lamps but the other trawler
lamp has a circular wick that provides more light. How should that wick be trimmed? Need it be trimmed at all?
