Local auction house


Post by johneliot »

We have a local auction house here and sometimes you can get good deals. I was able to get this 242b for only $22. I did have to replace the generator, packing and cap gasket all of which I had. Not an original globe though. Runs great.
This next lantern is a propane Trailblazer. I could care less about the lantern but I saw the pack of silklites and the globe. The globe looks like a sears tapered. It's 5 3/4 across the top and 4 1/2 across the bottom and say Pyrex in red. That was a whopping $2.

John, real nice 242B and can't beat the price. I just got a 242C for 3 times the price, but has an original straight line globe.

Steal of a deal on the 242, and a free profane with the mantles!

The Trailblazer, I believe, was made by the Turner Company. I have my Dad's old one; also found a Trailblazer globe to go with it. Nice old propane model.

I just sold a frosted middle section globe for around 50 bucks. That's a great deal.
