Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Sort of on this topic, I've got some beautiful, extremely high quality gimbaled brass oil lamps. One was a wedding present from my wife and we got its exact mate with a subsequent boat purchase.

I'd like to convert them to LED so they would be more than decorations.

Anybody have any links or info on doing that? I'm particularly interested in what to do to replace the mantle with some sort of fitting to electrify them.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
