Little guy went to sleep early tonight so I thought I'd play with some fire. Had this planned before the big hat light up this past week but... Things don't always go as planned. Here's all my Frankie's and customs... That I could remember
First is by far my favorite.. Also my first, a 275 fount, 200a burner, 228 vent, and an oddball valve wheel... 220h maybe? Idk. still instant lighting with homemade shortened F/A tube
second is my Cole-lite 200a fount, valve assembly, generator, with AGM lrl21 burner, and vent. Still instant lighting
third is a 275 fount with a AGM 3470 military upper. Factory Kero burner
fourth is a CQ lamp fount with a 228B upper. Still instant lighting like factory.
fifth is my "ideal user lantern" Coleman military fount with 242C upper. Spare generator clipped to air tube other spare parts/homemade wrench in parts well. Still instant lighting.
sixth is all quicklite... Altho not original, CQ Fount with 327 upper. Looks barn fresh even, should confuse future generations eh? Still quick lighting of course
seventh, now we're getting into customs. This is standard 200a Kero conversion made from leftover parts... Nothing fancy to see here
eighth, my custom black 200a really like this all black theme for some reason...
ninth and final, my custom black 502... Because I had the paint?... Idk why.
and of course my universal big hat adapter
Again these were all built in the past 8 months showing just how addicting this hobby can really be. Frankie's are by far my favorite part of this hobby even tho it usually starts from one of my least favorite parts... Bad Founts(cracked/pitted). This way you can make something unique and also get those parts back in action. Thanks for looking, have a good evening... And go light one up!
PS. I have more parts and ideas so stay tuned
