Hi all, saw this fire sake locally.  He is asking$50.  I don't know much about lanterns do though I would ask the experts.

Thanks

Well with my minimal knowledge, I believe that’s a 236. A 500 candlepower BEAST. I don’t have one but locally for 50 bucks. I’d probably pick it up.
My friends don’t call me “Lantern/lampie Levi”
for nothin’,if they did call me that.

Looking for bday lanterns 8/38, 8/41,

Talk him down some. It doesn’t have the original globe and sometimes if not most the time that’s the real value in a lantern

Thanks for the response.  I am picking up an m4 from the guy tomorrow and I will take a look at the lantern while I am there.

Will do.  When leviticus mentioned that it was 236, I googled it.  Wondered about the curved globe in the photos.  30-40$ range?

Thanks

236 is an excellent lantern. I'd talk him down some, but I wouldn't cry too much if I laid out $50 for one. Check carefully to make sure everything that should turn turns and check for fatal rust. I use any flaw I find as a bargaining chip. Point out the replacement globe, for sure, as a replacement bulge will run you $30+.

I think that's too much for not having the correct globe.

Not a bad deal if it’s sound with good plating but that globe has got to go lol.

Picked up the lantern and stove today.  Offered$60 for both he accepted.  I am happy.  He wanted$50 for the lantern, got it for$30 since it didn't have the original globe.

The lantern is 236  4/62.  The nickel is in great condition, very little pitting, since lacquer or something spilled on it.  It holds air.  Still has some fuel in it.  The pump works but scrapes a bit when used.  It looked much better in person.  I haven't fired it up yet.

My plan: acetic acid to derust and then assemble and use as is.

Here is the link to better pics

acetic acid may stain the nickel.

I have never used it before.  So I am open to ideas.  There is a video by king Coleman using acetic acid.  He commented that you can't leave it on long. You are probably right though.   I don't think it really needs it, it is pretty clean.

Thanks pb

Ok, I decided to use never dull and 0000 steel wool on the nickel and it came or nice.  I probably don't need to soak it.  I fired it up.  Fresh mantel, it burned well.  I noticed that it lasts about 5 min before I need to pump it up again.  I suspect the had cap is leaking.  I will fix that tomorrow.

Always assume the cap gasket is bad and replace it before proceeding. They are almost always toast.

You'll enjoy that lantern!

Testing my 236 on comparison to the 321c.  There is really no comparison but I thought I would measure lumens to get an idea how much more bright the 236 is.  I used an Android app light meter for lack of a better tool and the units are lx (lux).

321: 320ish
236: 1240ish

Nothing better to do tonight apparently.
