I decided around 30 minutes ago to accidentally knock the unimpressive newer 2C-HG off this 1969 MilSpec and tie on a silky.

I just received this 139 from fellow forum member, went thru it, cleaned fuel system.... fired up bright & strong......didnt come with shade, remembered there was a shade upstairs in house here on the farm.....whlah .....it fit perfectly......i guess being 4th generation in the same house has its advantages.....lol....first lamp also, that might be a problem i think

Lately, my go to light up has been a Rayo. The fount's ugliness on this one is getting to me, so tonight may be the night it gets a citric acid bath to strip the nickel since it won't clean or polish up. I tried lye a few times and it only succeeded in making me choke from the fumes. It was found on a deck in the rain at an estate sale, and I believe this one sat outside for years. At least it runs great.

I'll be lighting something or other up when I get home in an hour or so. Probably a lamp and/or lantern, too!

Let's see... Snaggletooth is fueled up, and I haven't run my CQ in a while... better take a can of CF home.
