Questions and Answers
I can´t get the acetylene gas flame to project a usable ray of light from these mirrors. It seems that the flame needs to be less than an inch away from this reflector to be close to the focus of the parabola, but at this short distance the hot flame would certainly damage the mirror. Could it be that the curvature on these reflectors is incorrect, or I am missing something?
 Unfortinatly It was more of the design of them that wasnt to good. Instead of making a strong narrow beam of light they went for a wider weaker beam. A modern car has a lot better lighting and you can not get a model T to show that much light with out moddifying it from orignial.
