Re: Like finding a pack of Silk Lites…

WhooHoo! Nice find! I was no fan of the early CFL bulbs and started stashing cases of incandescent bulbs away when they were on clearance from some pending "ban" or another. I've never even glances at that stash, since it seems like I can still find pretty much everything I need except the big base ...

Re: New Guy

Welcome from coastal North Carolina. You sure know how to make an opening with a first post. That's an impressive center piece for any collection.

If you hang out here you better start building shelves.

Re: Followed me home today

This one looked about as bad as yours, with an added layer of deer blood all over it. Cleaned up great. This picture was after the HC 1000 burner swap, but it ran fine with the QL burner.

Re: Followed me home today

"In the tank" is probably dried fuel varnish bubbles and dust. The coating on the outside is probably 80 years of dust and verdigris hiding beautiful shiny nickel. Give the outside a shot of oven cleaner and a gentle scrub with a potato brush and I bet it cleans up great. (Don't forget about PPE. Th...

Re: Separate hand air pumps

Why not just use the pump that came with them?

Small pumps for irons, midsize for most everything else, and the big T-handle for stuff like the Handy Gas Plant.

Pumps quickly become a collection on their own.

That's a nice gentleman's flask Moses. If I wasn't so fumbly I might like one like that. All my current travel flasks are plastic or stainless steel.

Fantastic globe art as always Mark. Did you highlight the Coleman stamp on the fount with a little tire crayon, or did it just weather that way? Looks very nice.

Re: 129 Lamp Air Tube Questions

Lamp could've fallen in it's top, or had something stacked on top of it. Lots of years on it. If you have a new air tube to compare the curves to you can probably spot the bend. I have stretched and straightened some.

Are you trying to fit the generator with the tube screwed into the valve?

Is it screwed in too far?

Re: 530 frame screw broke, need tips on extraction

Probably too late to try my favorite broken bolt trick.

I just press the tip of an electric engraver in the direction I want the broken piece to turn. The vibrations of the engraver work like a tiny impact gun to push the piece around until it's out.

Re: How to empty fuel from 200A Coleman lantern?

Opinions will vary on this, but if the fuel hasn't absorbed water, isn't stinky and turning to tar like old RUG tends to do, why not leave the fuel on the fount?

Coleman Fuel has some rust inhibitors, and any good fuel in the bottom would prevent oxygen from reaching the steel base.

Working from my phone is not fun. Tracking down your lantern wasn't hard on the laptop, even though it is a lantern. Lamps are more my thing.

Thank you for the pictures and video. That thing looks stout! I can make out open and close (upside down) on the brown knob, but those symbols and the one for ice are about the limit of my written Japanese translation ability.

That mica is really cool! Very Japanese.

My first was a heater, but the others popped up over several years. I like their differences from the normal Coleman stuff, but the best part is using them. Wonderful lights.

Re: 238B fuming from u-tube joint.

My muffler cement is many years old and works great. I've fixed many seeping joints and fixed many preformed mantles in place with the stuff. Don't let the cement name get you thinking it's sloppy and applied with a trowel. It can be applied sparingly and the excess wiped away so you'd never know it...
