Discussion in '3/300' started by LanternTom, Oct 22, 2018.
Looking good. Now we just need some detail pictures.
If (when) you have those lanterns in your hand, I would be interested to see whether:
1. the 2/200 has “Pat Pend” anywhere on the tank (top or bottom) and whether it has a two bungs in the top of the tank, one fitting the fuel flow mechanism, the other being sealed off with a bolt; and
2. Where the “Austramax” stamping is on both lanterns.
I will take a look at within the next few days and take some pics...
Great. More pics are always welcome, and as Nils said; with details.
But please make a separate thread for each lantern, thanks.
Hi Fellas, as I was browsing this morning I noticed two ''familiar'' Austramax lanterns? Matty notified me of them being for sale near my home in Toowoomba, I bought them, then swapped them to Andrew in Tasmania for a Gloria, he then sent them to a friend in the USA, I think?
I thought they looked familiar. It looks as though some good deals were done all round.
Hey Matty, yes, first I was thankful to you for the heads up, then I was very happy to trade with Andrew for a model R Gloria, this is one of the aspects I enjoy about lamps, ''share the love'' around with lanterns others want
That was me, i got them from Andrew on trade. I love them. You are the guy that bought my AGM 288?
Hey Tom, Andrew and I do some horse trading like you, so glad you like the two Austramax lanterns, they went to a good home, yes, I am the Guy who bought your 288 AGM, I really love that lantern, it runs sweet and bright, thanks Tom
Andrew and I lookout for each other for our collections. He is a good mate...Are you on Facebook?
@Tony Press Here are some pics of my Red vented Austramax for you and everyone else....lol
So much for my request above about separate topics for each lantern
Oh, well. I will split them myself when I get the time.
These comments relate to the above Australax 2/200
If you get around to taking the cage or collar off the 2/300 can you see if the top of the tank looks like this:
And whether the bottom has “PatPend”:
No Tom, I am not on face book, but, if I am not breaking any rules of CPL, here is my email, feel free to message me any time, Frank

Ok you blokes very glad you are all happy with the trades
@LanternTom Got these for being my US lantern holding Depot thanks mate
@outback boy dont tell everyone I traded you a Gloria they will think I’m a pushover lol! Na you deserve it mate always helpful and generous
And @Tony Press , you’re ok too
Well it looks like the red top one is a crossover between what I call a 2/300 ver. 4 and a 3/300 ver. 1.
Perhaps not worth splitting the red topped one out to a reference topic of its own then?
What are the black(ish) topped one? Is it correct, and which model?
@Carlsson, @Nils Stephenson & @LanternTom
Christer, on current analysis, I would put the one with the 2/300 collar, but the 3/300 tank stamp, in the 3/300 section. Unless there is something really odd about the tank, it looks like a standard 3/300 tank to me and we have no evidence that it’s been cobbled together.
Nils, what do you think?
The other with the blue speckled hood is 3/300.
Tony I have a red top exactly the same 2/300 collar clip lock pump and 3/300 fount I would say early 3/300 with leftover 2/300 parts
Typical of what Coleman Canada did !
My two bobs worth
Yes exactly. Apart from the stamping, I can't find any difference between the last 2/300 and the first 3/300. It makes sense that the factory used up old stock as it didn't affect the performance (which is what the customer was concerned about).
The mottled top is one of the first of the 'new' type of 3/300 with the arrow type wheel and the new shape of the hood. My guess is that this must be from the early 70s.
Separate names with a comma.
