Ok guys, I promise this is the last time I post anything about BXs or lantern crates. I finally got it all put together and I couldn’t resist getting some photos. 220BXs, pre ‘45 copper funnels, 40’s military padlock, and a crate that I built for them. I’m going to paint a regular fuel can OD and it will go in the center.

I see nothing wrong with posting a couple beautiful 220's and an awesome crate. Well done.

That is amazing!

Add building a lantern crate to my list of things to do. Any chance you could share the design of the crate?
Don’t sell yourself short judge, you’re a tremendous slouch.

Thank you for the kind words.

Mark, I will get the measurements for you within a few days. I built it based off of an original WWII kerosene wick lantern crate. Modified very slightly.

The crate alone would be outstanding and those lanterns look mint.

Wow, that looks sharp!  It's got the look of a GI lantern transit chest, but you can show off the lanterns when they're in the crate.  Is the center big enough for two gallon fuel cans?  

I can't see where the lanterns rest on the bottom, or the underside of the lid.  USMC transit chests have pads at top and bottom that keep everything from shifting around and getting broken when the chests are handled roughly...which is pretty much always.  I've been working on plans to make new upper pads.  I've found some material that looks like it has potential as replacement pad material.  If you're interested I could make you a set once I get the process worked out.

I spent a few years staring at that shade of green so you can trust me when I say that you pretty much nailed it. 
Very well done!

For what it's worth, I have a similar lock too but mine is smaller. Must have gotten wet.

Awesome work, the lanterns are great by themselves, but the crate puts it over the top. Are you willing to share crate plans / construction methods?
