When my neighbor passed away, his daughter gave me a couple 220s that he used on his boat when offshore tuna fishing. One came with a reflector. After getting them working again, I decided I liked the reflector and made one out of a soda can for the other one. Although they are a little ratty - the salt air added “patina” - I just like to light them in his memory. I used them last night to light the way to my door for the Trick or Treaters. The kids didn’t care but a few of the parents found them interesting.

Toby- nice lamp! Shade looks great on it.

E.B. - that was nice of your neighbors daughter to pass on her father’s lanterns, they look great and nice work on the reflector.

Kevin- That’s a nice 200!

Maybe someone reading will admit to using a dish washer and not the SWMBO kind Toby.
That’s a nice one.

Hi Kevin.
Great catch! :P
Isn't that called the Dutchess?
I was on the lookout for one of those lamps but I wasn't lucky so far. :(
I'm not sure if I'll ever get one.
Happy lighting, Erwin.

I have no idea why, but this Feb 1970 Canadian 220F that I've had for several months and have been meaning to fettle called out to me today, and wouldn't take 'no' for an answer. I still have to give it a proper cleaning and polish, but I did the necessary work to make sure for a safe light up and presto - she is running beautifully!

Now to get to my other 220F - my wife's birthday lantern - that has been in pieces since last winter when my fettling was interrupted by my paid work picking back up. I only have just over two months to get it done!

Cheers, everyone. I've missed ya!

Just because it's been a long time since I've logged in, I thought I'd drop by and say hi and fire up the Workhorse lantern.

Hello! Last night the Workhorse was snarling and growling at me. So, today, I worked on it and ended up needing a new pricker needle. Now it runs like a champ.

Been running this Leacock 105 since restored for two days at evening for 2 hours each day or so and for fuel I’ve used diesel/RUG 80:20 ratio also burning the same mix in my Hipólito 502 Amish conversion

Thank you John. With the exception of the later Coleman burner it’s Nulite. The shade is not terribly rare if you keep your eyes peeled.

Thank you!
