The idea that the second one would be quicker to build is not true.
It would be a version 2 and you would feel you HAVE to improve it and add a dish washer or something...[sSig_youtheman]

It's still being worked on & modified to improve performance, add features and usability, & break new grounds as the most versatile GPA frankenlantern ever built. [Red-Wink]

If i can find one of those tapered springs like those that were on the vintage kettles would work for the bail on this.

I have not posted a video yet, this past few months have been a rough & bumpy ride, ( relationship stresses, family stresses, etc.) but once i can get back on my feet i will work on getting the video done and posted.

I was reminded to post an update here on this. We plan another 3-week trip to the east coast in June, and hope to do videos of this unit in use. (also with further refinements & modifications to add to its versatility.) its odd that since its been built, its the most used lantern used on our trips. (for light, cooking, heat, charging phones, and causing long conversations from fellow campers about this oddball "unit" . [iconbeer]

The ICCC convention? I wish I could be there. But the border would get suspicious of me trying to cross with 100+ lanterns & stoves. I do plan on attending the GPA meet in Ontario though on the first August long weekend this year.

re-uploads of photos The Apocalypse Lantern. I still use this beauty on camping trips, and when the power goes out. Can burn everything from propane, Naphtha, gasoline, paint thinner, Kerosene, diesel, furnace oil, vegetable oil, jet fuel, Alcohol, gas-line antifreeze, paraffin oil, the list goes on. Also runs on all sorts of battery types, can solar charge then in day, then charge your phone from the lantern at night, cook meals, boil water, heat a cabin or large tent, and even run upside down. ( this unit won 3 first place awards in different competitions.)
This Lantern also stores extra batteries, matches, fire-starter, 10 mantles, 2 spare generators, & the solar panels in the base compartment of the lantern under the fount.

This is without a doubt, the most ingenious FrankenLantern ever! I like the almost all brass construction aesthetically, with just enough SS to accent it.

[iconbeer]


I would love to see the original build detail pics or maybe a link to an album. It's too bad the original posts are older, and can't be edited. (Maybe a Mod or Murff could reset that? [sCo_idk]
