OK, I've been really really lucky with my lantern and stove purchases but my recent acqusition of a Coleman 214 was not my finest hour. The fount was in a shocking state, full of corrosion holes and when I attempted to weld it, the true extent of the horror was immediately apparent. Quite a few areas were so badly corroded they feel to pieces when I prodded the surface with the end of a screwdriver. Honestly, the paint was literally holding it together in some places! Oh, and when I opened the tank up to see how bad it was, (very cathartic) it was full of this spongy pink stuff so I assume someone had already tried to use that stuff you put in tanks to seal them - Poro.... something or the other. Not a pretty sight! So I now have a number of 214 parts I no longer need. They are in exactly the same state as when I removed them half an hour ago.
