Re: Does anyone know Aladdin shades?

Yes, jet fuel is wonderful.

Also, very important. When you light up your lamp, let it warm up slowly before you turn the wick up. Let the burner warm to operating temperature before you adjust it. If you turn it up too fast, and leave the lamp, you may return to a run away lamp (out of control).

Re: Does anyone know Aladdin shades?

That is a very nice Aladdin lamp. Good eye and good deal. You will like it.

Use high quality lamp fuel - buy Aladdin fuel, Medallion lamp fuel, or Kleanstrip Kerosene substitute fuel at Walmart.

Do not use liquid paraffin fuel.

Regular kerosene may not work as well as the good stuff.

Re: How does everyone treat the fount after de-rusting

If you are storing the lantern (after derusting), first dry throughly. Then place some ATF (auto transmission fluid) in the fount to coat it. This is loaded with rust preventives and will protect the fount. Leave the fuel cap loose - not tight. It helps if you keep the lantern at a constant temperat...

LED has made them obsolete. Cheap light and plenty of it. Does not matter if it causes a headache or not. We all know how great liquid fueled lanterns are, but the general public goes with the price, and the easy of use of the battery LED lanterns. Cheap - so cheap, that they are almost disposable.
