Can anyone tell me who made this lantern please ? It came from Canada via eBay a long time ago. With pinholes in the all steel tank, an open stress crack in the fuel pick-up tube and the broken cleaning needle stuck in the jet, it has sat gathering dust for at least 14 years. So time to do something about it. I don’t know who made it, the only identification mark is this label riveted to the collar. There is no lip on the thin (1.25 mm) glass which is same size as for 500 cp Optimus / Petromax type lanterns and is cracked from top to bottom. The lantern is 235 mm tall (excluding the handle) and the fount is 150 mm in diameter. Here it is next to an Optimus 200 for comparison. The fount. Brazed repair to a pin hole in the base-plate. I have also lined the fount with POR15 to stop it from going rusty again. A suitable length of 3mm copper tube was pushed down the original fuel feed and soldered in place. Note brazed repair to another pinhole. The burner (on the left) is similar in size and shape to an AGM L38 burner but the screw threads are not compatible. The cork pip in the Primus type NRV no longer made a good seal and so was replaced with one made of viton. Globe cage with lighting door. Blue enameled hood. A Coleman R55 is the same length as the original generator and the threads on the jamb nut are a perfect match which make it a suitable replacement. [img. 15 & 16] Time for a test burn. The refurbished R55 behaved well with gasoline (Aspen 4) but I had to use the cleaning needle every minute or so when I tried it with kero. The clean blue flames are a little short but with no mantles to contain them, any more pressure in the fount and they blow themselves out. Coleman 21 mantles, R55 generator and a 50/50 mix of Aspen 4 and kerosene. Quite an easy fettle really, I can't think why it took me so long to get round to do it. Henry.
