    Hi all , I recently became the owner of this nice smaller size lantern, I didn't have to do too much to it apart from giving it a good clean, I replaced the filler cap seal and the jet then adjusted the air gap and lubricated the pump leather, I also fitted it with a ship anchor mantle as they shrink up rather small, very happy with the end result.

    They certainly are useful Jeff, good for a wide range of smaller lanterns,
    Also the date code underneath makes it a 1982 model.

    These are nice little well made lanterns.
    But just an idea: I would not use the E&G marked globe.
