    Hope you don’t intend polishing your teeth with that Autosol Buckaroo.

    Nice looking Coleman shining there with another getting the treatment.
    Autosol is good stuff, have you tried “Mother’s”?
    Cheers

    Port, now there is a thought. Love a drop or two, but normally fettle by beer!

    To be fair @Matthew92, the Port should be called, “mediocre Port you know you’ll buy for the novelty of the name”.

    It’s actually an empty bottle I keep on my workbench. I picked it up from a million-acre cattle station in the Northern Territory.

    Haven’t tried Mother’s @AussiePete , hows it stack up against Autosol? (Which I haven’t yet used to polish my teeth @Jean J - maybe they’d be whiter if I did? :a)

    @ColinG - yes, 1972 639, made in Canada. It’s my favourite. I even have the box.

    I hate to say it @Levi Tomey, but the 639 came from eBay. Actually got it at a reasonable price - I normally moan about eBay pricing but every now and again a good deal can be had.

    In the short time I've been collecting I'd say it's a combination of perseverance, casting your net as wide as possible and luck. Sometimes you're looking for a specific model when an unexpected gem turns up completely different from what you expected. The nicest lanterns I've got were all down to random chance.

    Play a long game and you'll win.

    @Buckaroo
    I have both Autosol and Mother’s and both work very well. I tend to use Mothers more than the Autosol, it’s a matter of choice but I feel it gives a finer shine ..... maybe just a perception on my part, but hey, I like “Tooheys Old” beer too, for that internal shine ..... if you get my meaning. :lol:
    Cheers
    Pete
