    Another item from by barn that has got a freshening.
    The fount was badly worned so I descided to repaint it.
    Getting the smooth transition between silver and black was very difficault using car spay painting, but I think it is good enough.
    This one is made in the USA as shown in the bottom.
    There is a a small tiny stamping on the side saying Coleman quick lite, the sunshine of the night. Also two digits, I think it is 9 10. Does this tells the date of manufacturing?
    One stange thing in the design of this heater is the control for the jet cleaner. It is not possible to use it while the heater is running, unless you don't want to get your fingers badly burned.
    Unfortunately is the ceramic glower piece missing, if anyone happens to know where these can be found, I would appreciate a hint.
