Re: This week's lanterns...

Nice finds. I found a NIB Avon once, bail uninstalled and wrapped in plastic. Don’t use the cologne near an open flame! Real nice lamp. Those lamps are from the 30’s so may be June, 1935 or May 1936. I’m nowhere near my Book.

I’ve always used flat gaskets. I do have a few o-rings in the spare parts bin just in case.

Yes, make sure the assembly is very secure in the frame cause if it ain’t and you give it a twirl…..better yet, take the globe off and give it a spin.
Once the lantern is lit, pull it back down. No need to cook it!
