    @LanternTom

    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.

    Cheers

    Tony

    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?

    Hey Frank,

    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

    So much for my request above about separate topics for each lantern :cry:
    Oh, well. I will split them myself when I get the time.

    @Carlsson

    These comments relate to the above Australax 2/200


    @LanternTom

    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:

    79086997-459D-48D8-95F8-2ABE861CCD0E.jpeg


    And whether the bottom has “PatPend”:

    Cheers

    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.

    Cheers

    Tony

    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.
