    Had a bit of luck fixing a Coleman 242B as I only had a few generic spare globes and only one medium sized one left. In Australia these are marketed as Primus/Companion/Kookaburra globes and they come in three sizes; Small (80 * 80 mm) Medium (90 * 105) and Large (110 * 115 mm).

    The medium one I had was actually 89 mm * 106 mm and it would not fit the cage at the base by a smidgeon but low and behold turning it upside down it fitted. At about $12.00 current price it provided an interesting solution.

    I still prefer the 550 globes but they cost a bit more and getting them presently through the mail could take months.

    PS
    The medium also fits the Primus model 991.

    The large fits the Primus 981 as well as the Anchor lantern.

    I am aware of the error in my heading and understand a moderator might change it to Coleman. Happens when you are talking about Companion and Coleman in the same thread. :cry:
