Re: Record selling price for embossed FS lantern.

Big money for a repaint. I say the seller was honest and good for him. He did a nice restoration. I seen it on there and was watching to see what it done. And the seller was up front about the paint. Cannot blame him for what people are willing to bid. I just wonder if this is tax refund and stimul...

Suitcase generator tube broken off in valve?

I bought a clean looking fuel tank for $1 at the flea market. It looks like a very useable tank with the exception that the gen tube is broken off pretty flush with the valve. Anyone have any luck removing the broken off piece from the valve? Thanks!!

Re: Fuel bottle

All kinds of fuel bottles. I don’t know why I got a thing for containers. The cheaper China one seem to work fine. When I open a new can of CF I usually empty it into the bottles. It’s so much easier to fill a lantern with a bottle than a gallon can. At least for me anyway.

Re: Kamplite “Pinky “ collection discussion.

That definitely looks like a waterslide or at least like it came on the lantern. I was thinking since yours is the only one I’ve heard of that maybe someone removed the Kamplite decal and put the herters on there. But seeing it that definitely appears to not be the case. Looks original.
