I was lucky enough to stumble on a Red 222 Globe (not pictured) a while back, but an amber one eluded me.  I think I even remember them being on Old Coleman Parts, but I didn't move on it and lost out.  So... after a couple months of futzing around...googling...and finally talking with glass factories, I had a "few" made.  The red didn't come out as dark as I had hoped, but I think the amber looks quite nice. 

After taking this picture and sharing it on the Facebook site, I realize I had grabbed two of the 222's that I salvaged with a 550 Valve and 200 Generator...and the decal's I had printed.   Finished these months ago, but been so unbelievebly busy with work just havent had time to tinker much.

Anywho, cheers!

>>Looks great! You are going to get lots of questions about those!

I'll start.  Borosilicate glass, right?  How did you go about getting them made?  Did you give them a globe to use for sizing or provide them dimensions?  The colors are within the glass or applied?  Have you run them a while to confirm the color doesn't change?

Obviously, this is an exciting development!

Those look great, but . . . I'm afraid it might be bad news. ðŸ˜”

I've been trying to collect these lanterns and the prices are already through the roof! Now even more people will want them! Waaahhh!!!

Oh, well. Nice job on the globes! ðŸ˜

Amber = Borosilicate
Red = Quartz Glass - Typically used in IR heaters - higher temp rating than borosilicate.
Both are colored glass, not coated.

Well...Long story short, I made an engineering drawing using a few existing globes and had them made overseas via alibaba.  I'll be running them for a while before I actually sell any.  Since my time has been short lately, I may recruit a couple folks for testing purposes...

Most of the amber are a little thicker than Coleman's... the Red are about 3x the thickness(!), I was a little worried they wouldnt fit, but only required a slight adjustment to the heat shield.

Is the red not red?  or is it fading?

It appears to be a coating rather than colored glass as specified.  Annoying... but different factory than the one that made the amber.  Should have been a bit more wary when the Amber mfg. mentioned that many colors, including red, are very scarce in the world right now for some reason.

Red color in glass is usually gold. Not sure what's happening on the gold market right now. Red has always been the most difficult to find and expensive colored glass.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Yep, gold is insane right now.

I use Gold & Palladium Braze alloys in my day job.  Needless to say, there has been some interest in moving towards cheaper options!
