Did Coleman ever make an accessory vault for the 222 series of lanterns?  Seems like a handy widget to keep an extra mantle and protect the paint.  I as tinkering with 3D printing a couple different versions, but reckon my strategy of holding them on with magnets is a bit weak.

pondering....

Are there any filaments that are pliable after printing? If so you could make it like the plastic cases for 220 series lanterns. You could also put a couple slits in it so it could flex a bit more, but may not be as water tight.

Nothing that I have ever seen. The red case they made for the 222-229 series is the same as the plastic case for larger lanterns. There is plenty of room in the base for a couple of packs of mantles. There are three tabs in the case base that snap on to the rim of the lantern to hold it in place.

There are flexible resins (DLP/SLA printing), not so much on the filament side since they become hard to force through the extruder. 

Even then, a case would be a fairly large part, although i could see printing a Mold and making a carbon fiber case. 🙂

I’m not a big fan of the cases, but honestly haven’t laid hands on them so maybe I’ll pick one up these days and check it out. Or make one. 🙂

What about a disc that's pressure fit inside the bottom lip? Could make a finger hole in the center, to remove it? Usually finding a plastic food lid can work in a pinch..campinut..

I'm sorry I said case but meant parts safe. Most are familiar with he aluminum ones but there was a black plastic one also. Just flexible to snap over the lip on the bottom of the fount. Actually the image I'm attaching has 3 jaws but I thought the one I have at home snapped all the way around, but I could be wrong. If the plastic was at all flexible this could work, I just know most Ive encountered were very rigid.

I also like the idea of one that snaps inside the foot ring.Screenshot_20190715-154157_Samsung Internet-270x480.jpg

Hmm, i was thinking about one that snapped into place. The 222’s have a Lip on the outside of the fount, which would work well. 

Also might attempt to CAD up one with a plastic latch.  Or maybe a 1/4 turn bayonet thread...

man...i need more time in the day... 🙂

I see the plastic coffee can lids and wonder if somehow they could be reformed/repurposed to fit the lantern tank bases. Below is a scan of an aluminum folding reflector that snaps underneath the tank on 220 lanterns. You can keep a couple mantles under the reflector. The piece of white paper on the reflector just reduces the scanned size to fit the forum limit. I've made a thin cardboard template to go under a 285A tank.

The cases for these lanterns were discontinued a few years ago. They are starting to go up in price, so if you want one, you better hurry before they go up to much!

Here is what the base looks like.

With the lantern on it.

With the lantern out. It sits in the lip at the top of the base where the three tabs are. There is a good inch of space below the lantern to store extra mantles in.

A friend mentioned an option for a vault. Let me see if I can reach him.

Forgot about the case serving as a safe. If anyone has the elusive corner funnel? The options are endless, but until then, this will work in a pinch..campinut..

That looks great! Have you tried bumping it to see how much force it would take to knock the magnets off?

Its prolly about 10-lb straight pull to pop it off, i might add a few more since it’s likely limited by the thickness of the steel and saturation.  I had considered making one piece that clamps to the fount, and stays there and making the vault screw on, or use magnet on magnet... but got lazy. 🙂

If that's lazy I'd hate to see not lazy! Hahaha

These are gonna be cool and I may have to pick one up if you put them out there for when I find one of these lanterns.

I just use a military quart mollie bag. Plenty of space for tools mantles and generator and a lighter. I store it with the original foam globe wrap and a homemade reflector. They fit great

Someone with a plastic printer could make one with the right coordinates. I would take 2 for mine

Put the 222 burner frame and genny on a 321 fount and you can use the 200 safe,,,

And it will run for close to 16 hours, on one fillup.  for me that's 5 or six days.  

The coffee can lid was to prevent concrete rash on the new paint...

Wonder how long it would run on kerosene.... Hmm...

A 30.5 oz coffee can plastic lid is just a little wide for the bottom of a 220 tank, but I think there is an easy fix to turn the lid into a bottom safe.

Serial Number 2 looks pretty good as well...  Although #1 Red Infill looks better.

Need to figure out a way to remake these labels...

Accessory safe,m parts kit, they have had a few names and I have a few of them. Like many things, at least in my opinion, they are both good, and bad. If you have a pristine lantern you may not want to use one at all. The metal ones are not paint friendly. Plastic is better but does create abrasion marks. On user lanterns or lanterns you keep strictly for emergency use a couple of packs of mantles and a generator or two is a good idea. So is the little wrench to change generators with. A paper matchbook would be good too. A whump stick or sparkie could also come in handy. Maybe even a mica globe. They aren't indestructible, but neither will they break. I'm not talking just a power out emergency. I mean a situation where you have to improvise a shelter or use whatever shelter you can find. If it is wet weather and windy that whump stick will be your best friend. A two mantle lantern will also give you about 6,000 BTU to warm your carcass too. I've said all this before in this, and other venues. One reader suggested having new, unburned mantles tied in place and carrying some of the clip-on mantles since they would be easier to install in a bad situation. I've never used clip-on mantles, so no comment on those. Unburned vs burned mantles? The unburned will probably survive better if you have to go far to find any kind of shelter. But, the burning would not be as fast as lighting burned mantles with the whump stick. There you have it. My 2¢ worth.

A pix of a simple coffee can lid (Walmart 30.5 oz.) safe experiment. Could also be use as a base protector. The space under the tank bottom is limited, but a flat pack of mantles should do ok. Parts were the coffee can lid, 1.5" elastic band, paper stapler to connect the elastic band ends, hot glue, and 10 minutes of spare time. Might take this apart and try a thin piece of round wood with vertical spacers to give more room underneath the tank.  
Edit: I forgot the lantern being used had an aluminum folding reflector snapped in under the tank. When I removed the reflector there was more room and a pack of paper matches fit in and the lantern still sat flat.

These are also good ideas for the other size founts that never had safes made:  242/243, 275, 500 stove...

One point for safes however:  it has been claimed that you can get condensation and rust from their use so maybe a vent to let it breath?  I know the aluminum safes from Coleman have rubber gaskets, but that may be to keep the clamp from marring paint?

Good point, these should be 'vented' enough to not form condensation, I wouldn't like the idea of sealing with an ORing, other than to protect the paint.

Unfortunately, my Resin 3D printer isn't large enough for the 220-sized founts...  I could, however print those larger ones and cast them in resin... hmm... Crap... more stuff to do, maybe. 🙂
