Help. .what models are these

#1

Post by kaliona »

Picked up a couple Coleman's for a couple bucks each but can't figure out what they are. The first has a mica globe (I think that's what they're called) and I can't see any markings on the bottom of the fount. The second doesn't appear to need a globe because the tip cleaner would be inside the globe if there was one and I see a 7 7 on the side of the fount. Can anyone tell me what these are and if any parts are missing? Thanks for your help.

Looks like a later Coleman 427 and a Nulite 5M. Probably incorrect on the Nulite model but it is Nulite. They’re great runners!

Thank you!

Looks like a NuLite #5 and a 1927 Coleman QuickLite. The number 5 looks like mine from what I can see.

Thanks for the info. Are the mica globes still available for these lanterns? Also, why is the tip cleaner on the Quicklite right next to the burner? Would there be some sort of "door" on the globe to access it? I've never worked on these models. Any pointers or links to rebuild instructions would be appreciated.

I'm no expert but I believe the quick lite also had a mica chimney with a little door there for lighting and operating the tip cleaner. I'm certain it will get hot there so I wouldn't stick my finger in there to work the tip cleaner based off my experience with a 220e

It appears to me that the mica on your Nulite is the correct mica for your Quicklite. I don't remember what the Nulite's used exactly. There are a couple guys building mica chimneys now.

Now you've got me wondering, because the OP's mica looks like the one that came with my Nulite #2M.
