Hey @TerryD did you ever find a 242 fount? I just put an ISO/WTB add on the CCF for myself. I ran across all the parts to one minus the fount so figured I'd ask..

Looking for a painted one. I'm just looking to build a runner, not a show piece. As long as it's mostly green and clean inside, I'd be good with it.
Right on, I'm in the same boat. I'll keep an eye out for something affordable that'll work. The OCP website has a nickle one right now for 32$ so I'm hoping I can pick a cpl up around the 20$ price point..

So.. got a cpl that may work, if you can handle a dent or drill out a cpl new screw holes.. Lemme know and I'll see what he wants for them. He's got a nickle one that I'm going to ask about. Screenshot_20240203_185935_Chrome.jpgScreenshot_20240203_185948_Chrome.jpg

I think the 46 is closer to age of what I have. I don't mind the dent but don't want the messed up pump bore. What's he asking?

The Spring Coleman gathering was a hit even tho the weather didn't cooperate! Two days of wind driven rain but hey, that's why we play with storm proof, gas powered appliances!FB_IMG_1713694935776.jpg20240419_211913.jpg20240419_213854.jpgFB_IMG_1713625730052.jpgFB_IMG_1713625739710.jpgFB_IMG_1713696234434.jpgFB_IMG_1713695562489.jpg

Picked up a Solar LED Lantern from Costco awhile ago.. Tossed outside.. fully charged.
( DURACELL 2000 Lumen Power Outage LED lantern, )

So Lets test it..
Plugged in my Cellphone Dead taken about 3.5 hours To fully charge..

Has USB ports for Charging and Charging Lantern with shore power.

Lantern started at 5 Blue lights. Ended with two Blue lights indicating charge remaining.
Sat in sunshine for two days.. Up to 3 Blue lights out of 5.. 3 Days in sunshine should Fill Battery Tanks. Should??


Okay not really made for charging things, like it said was. But if power is out and sun is shinning With Sunshine in high orbit.. Yea got no choice and time. ;-). Winter When sunshine is lower in the Hemisphere ( Earth is not FLAT!!). Solar sucks.

Had to try it.. Do have other means of Lanterns.. Like Fossil FUEL. 100% works!!. ;-)

Would be great for a Gift. three days in sun.. 4 Bars.. gave up.. Plugged it into shore power. Solar panel is great for looks not real world use. Unless stuck on Little island..

Will test at camp.. See if it survives.. Not worthy of having.. if gonna use it in real world use.. :)

1930's Prentiss Waber L43-PA. Found at estate sale for $22! Came with an original Coleman amber globe, not original to this lantern. Needed a Lye solution tank flush, gen, fuel and air tubes cleaned out and the valve needed attention but she runs great now!

Sept 1951 Christmas 200A! Scored off Marketplace. It's the last 200a I needed to complete my collection. Perfect flawless vent, sunrise globe, original paint in good shape, ok label~

Asking 50, I gave them 100 to ship it to me minutes after they listed it states away. Didn't realize how good of shape it was in till it arrived. I'm happy.

If you decide to part with the all green 200a, let me know. I've been needing one for my singles collection.
That was the last one I needed too, besides the '51 Christmas. I almost got with you on another greenie but I couldn't get an air problem figured out so didn't want to pass on a problem child to you.

They come up every so often on my club sites so I'll keep my feelers out for ya~

Finishing up my Pops Navy lantern. It's a 228E Transitional 3/63. Now, just need to affix the stickers of the four ships he was on while in the service. No amount of wet sanding would smooth the surface so.. I think it looks alright tho, he likes it is all that matters!20240226_201710.jpg20240103_105546.jpg20240613_173126.jpg20240613_173146.jpg20240616_111619.jpg20240616_111410.jpg20240616_111442.jpg20240616_111453.jpg20240616_111723.jpg
