Re: Coleman 530 pocket stove and 252 lantern, cool can opener added.

I rigged up a fixture to hang a Coleman mantle on but it didn`t work just barely glowed so they must make them from something else.
Oh well we tried. :)

Yep it`s terrible and they don`t hold up well either, they say the old ones were better.
I think the round wick lamps are better but they don`t give off as much light but i recon anything is better than nothing if ya don`t have any light. :)

Cold blast is what you see the most which draw cold air through the side tubes to supply the flame with fresh air. Hot blast like this Rayo no. 90 draws the hot air from the...
