Re: Covid Vaccine

I got my second Pfizer shot yesterday. I'm 64, but have prior conditions so they called me and had me get on the list about a month ago. First shot three weeks ago and second shot yesterday. I'm good to go, far as I know.

Re: Source for 249 Generator?

"Hard solder" means silver braze, Jim. It's a jeweler's name for the properly named silver braze. About the lowest temp you can get silver braze is around 1140 F. All solder melts below 800 F. That is how the AWS defines solder melting points as opposed to brazing temps.

Re: Last years of Coleman quality?

I wonder why some of us think brass founts are better. Firstly, both brass and steel fount lanterns use steel for the bottom of the fount. Second, I have never seen a steel fount with stress cracks, because there are none. Steel is stronger than brass, too, in the same dimension and especially in th...

Don't have to worry about the mica. It's like see-through stone. A mineral that is not bothered by heat. Remember, the Air-O-Lanterns (327 type) came with "globes" made from mica, 'cept when they are made of mica they are called a chimney. No, I don't know why.

The globes that Coleman used (I don't know about the new ones) had a 400° F temperature differential quality. So, if the globe was 300° F and the snow is 30° F, that is only 270 degrees differential. Well within the design of the glass. That is why Coleman could advertise the lanterns as all weather...
