I can't decide

#1

Post by arizonacamper »

I cannot decide which one of these three lanterns to go through first. So I am going to leave it up to you guys. all three are Canadian. I have a 4 of 57 200 in nickel. a 4 of 48 249 and a no date 200 in red. The majority wins and I don't care which one it is. but I will not do all three at once!

Always do nickel first ...... red and green are ubiquitous enough. Make that shine stand out ..... choose one? O.K., another vote for 249.

Those Canucks are a long ways from home! I am a big fan of the red over nickel so my vote is for the 200!

Red 200, save dessert(249) for last. 200's are easy to work on and may get you on a roll.

.....although I just run CF (Naptha) in my 249 and the other "keros". Run great and don't have to find and store two fuels.

Well I guess all the votes are in 249 is first. I'm going to try and start on it Sunday. My first kerosene lantern that I'm going to do.

Agree with Toby & Paul , the 249 first. While I am in a hurry to see how ever lantern I fettle will turn out, I thoroughly enjoy doing each one in turn. Or save the best for last & do the 249 third , either enjoy.

I'd go with the red first, sort of like an opening act, to get you warmed up for the main event. :)

The 249 is by far the most uncommon one of that bunch.

Do that one.
