    Thanks @JEFF JOHNSON & @Rangie
    But there is still a lot of work and research !

    One question, which Coleman ventilator is 155mm diameter ?
    I'm thinking of fitting one on this lamp, the original Primus one being untraceable.
    Same for glass :cry:

    That was an ingenious solution for the frame. What did you use? I have a 1001 that is almost as bad and have wondered how to fix it.

    A Coleman R55 generator will fit and work on these lanterns. A glass is more a of a problem. I don't know of a suitable replacement and I have been looking for a while. The only option is a mica reproduction.

    I agree, a great idea to use the top of the can in that way! :thumbup:
    But everything is so super thin ?!?
    Have you got a tig welder?

    top fettle marks there :clap:

    I thought I saw a thread where someone had used a Veritas cap ventilator but I don’t know the size of your resurrected lantern, I’m afraid

    great work !

    regards,

    What a lovely gift! You are very lucky.
    Splendid fettling and ingenious use of the spray can.
    I have been testing available hoods on a primus 1050 cage, aladdin and veritas are to small, Hasag was close but no good as top cap attaches to burner.
    I don't have any suitable Coleman's here but an AGM 2571 was slightly to big.
    For a snug fit you would need to grind some notches for the clips, it looked good though.

    Thanks for the informations, James !

    I use the top of a spray can and a 30mm steel washer.
    I had to make two notches to allow passage for the air intake tubes (pictures soon)


    I'm working in a shipyard, and I have welding colleagues :D/

    Another possibility is a veritas superb hood, it was to small but only by 1-2 mm it felt like you could almost force it on, one might grind out to a perfect fit.

    @Nils Stephenson ,
    I use a 65mm spray can.
    The adjustments to be made, provide 2 notches for the passage of the air intake tubes. The detail pictures below.

    it requires rotating the cage/frame with the burner, and fixing with the screw on the collar in the end.
