I have a few Canadians lanterns they for some reason I was looking at the vents nuts and found some really interesting differences. I wish someone could reproduce the one in the middle, when I got my 249 lantern was like that, vent stud was steel very rusted and vent nut was stuck in there looks like previous owner tried some pliers on it. All I did was quench, quench until came off; had to buy a new steel vent stud for my 249 and wearing the same vent nut, wish I could find a sale one. 

First vent nut pictured is from a 242k and look at it is a bit shorter, knurled rim is wider that the other two. Last one in the picture is from a 242b and is the most popular one, they are either nickel or bare brass

Same vent nut. I don't know when this has been used.
It's very interesting.

Hello Junichi. Checked my Canadian 242's and 247's and my early 1935 to 1937 models had the larger diameter shorter length ball nuts. My painted font 242B from 1942, 1943 both had the grooved bottom flange. All others had the regular ball nuts.  Cheers, Andrew

To add clarification to my earlier post, that it's likely a coincidence that they were on the my mid 40's 242B, as my other similar dates had the common flange on the right as Pancho shows in his opening post.

Believe someone posted this previously and think there’s another version

Another thing I’ve found on a few 242k is they had the US style nuts

If they weren’t turning them on screw machines you can’t count on total uniformity. Even with a screw machine they could vary from setup to setup. I had friends cranking out similar pieces for other industries in the 80’s. It was piece work and most operators weren’t trained machinists.
I frighten easily!

My current shade is Coleman!!

To me a lamp without a shade is creepy!

Hello Andrew. I'm still interested because I saw this ball nut for the first time. Also, I saw the nut on the left side of the photo of Pancholoco 1911 for the first time. Pancholoco 1911 Thank you for posting the photo.

I could turn these vent nuts in brass on my South Bend Lathe...pretty sure I have both a straight line and cross knurling wheels that would match the pattern on these 242 nuts...what is the interest in these and what would they be worth?
