CARBIDE — FOR ILLUMINATING
CARBIDE — FOR ILLUMINATING—Is there any difference in carbide? If so, which is the best to use in the Baldwin Camp Lamp?
There may be different kinds of carbide, but it is carbide of calcium that is used for illuminating. It is a compound of carbon and lime, and when it comes in contact with water it forms a gas, which burns with a brilliant light.
