We worked on that cruddy looking model 9 on the right in the picture, it cleaned up pretty nice but i`m not going to get it running because it would cost another 50 bucks for a mantle and wick.

Too bad the durn mantle and wick are so spendy, Lenn. That did clean up nicely.

Looks good. Around the 1930s to 1940s that was common. Lots of kits were available back then for the conversion.

Very neat. Those LED ones that look like Edison Bulbs would not be out of place in it either. Even that cord looks good with it. It just looks right.

This miniature oil lamp is my favourite, it was my mother's, it doesn't give off a lot of light but I like it.

I'd like to see that one lit up at night. I have several of those lanterns and an old tub somewhere. I might try making something similar.

Cool idea.. 8) I wonder if it can be seen much further away, could have been important when trying to get home in a blizzard late at night. I have read stories of travellers found frozen to death just yards from their cabins.

that looks great. i like that it blocks the side light which guards night vision.

but i've been in blizzards and fogs where that light would not carry far. car lights don't carry far in some conditions.

it is a very attractive thing and i wonder why i didn't think of it !

Looks as if it belongs in the 1800s.
I wonder if a piece of mirror of some sort behind it would make the light carry farther?

Paint inside would probably work to reflect more light out. Good idea Lenn. I bet that paint was used when they could get it back in the old days.

Those old wash tubs were useful for a lot of things. Even using one on the outside wall of a deer cabin with an old Coleman lantern would be useful. If you have the wash tub, but not a reflector for a Coleman, it should do well anyway.

Pitchy, you remind me a lot of my Dad's family. His Parents were born in the late 1800s and learned to make do with what they had. Folks from that time were creative because they had to be.

helps to have more daylight these days.

Something i just learned about old lanterns, they made hot blast and cold blast models the hot blast being the older versions.
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 flame in and it circulates around the tubes and re-burns the gasses.
What i like about this lantern is when you lift the globe it swings off to the side for easier lighting. 8)
