I probably have a similar amount of packs but very few Old Thorium stuff and a number of different sizes and types.

Many, many more than I'll ever need. But I keep buying them whenever I see a deal. All my lanterns and lamps will never be lacking new socks.

I buy a few 4 packs every Amazon order. So most all new Coleman...they work for me, and are cheap enough.

I'm going to put my mom in the hunt for silk lites. She yard sales often, and always keeps an eye out for stuff I'm looking for.

I don't often need to replace mantles. I have packed by L228 slant all over for years and the mantles are still intact. I probably have 30 in my kit, but rarely need them. If I find a stash for cheap, I will buy them, but that hasn't happened for a while.

I have close to 1000 mantles here, so I'm set for a little bit anyway. 😄

I have a couple-three thousands. Just never thought I could have too many and it got out of control. I don't actually know the number, but more that two thou. They just crept up on me. Also, some nice members here sent me a few gobs of them now and then. Not all Coleman, (no big loss there), but a lot of Coleman just the same, and Petros and Peerless. I haven't bought any for a long time. I think I have enough. Maybe.

Russ, that bottom "mantle" looks kinda like a mud puppy looking at the right side of the pic. (A big salamander, creature, thing.)

I've got a few curiosity mantles and ones that were on sale, but the only ones I've loaded up on are the large "Butterfly" mantles, and the Aladdin #200 mantles. The Butterfly mantles are about as inexpensive as mantles get, and they can be adjusted to run on different size lanterns. The Aladdin #200 mantles contain thorium and will run on the 220 series lanterns, but I can also give them to science teachers and similar as a safe experimental radioactive source.

Here's one of my caches:

Mostly Silkies, some Philippine Perrless, Bernzo, Petro, Primus... enough to completely stuff that tacklebox.

Then there's the cache in the Van, the one at home....

For $1 a pack or less, I'll never pass up thoriated mantles!

This comes up once and awhile. Then Warren shows off his enormous collection. That usually shuts it down.

I got about 400-500 pcs of different size and brand mantles but I do burn about 5-10 mantles per camping (tried to go every weekend or every other weekend) since I bring different lantern per camping 🏕

Send me a pic of the pack. They had several. Would love to add to my collection. Taking it to convention to do some trading and try to add some new ones.

Thanks for thinking of me
