200E:

             

'59 220E fount, 5101 frame, gen and vent, 200 valve and collar.

And, yes, I'm aware it's clocked backwards. I had a brain fart that day.

Here's my EZ Frank. A 242C and add an AGM vent and bail. No tools required.

This was designed as a fuel miser. The fount is early 220b with a soldered pump tube(the bung for the CV spun and was in a junk pile). The 222 parts were acquired from various members and OCP. I made the gen by shortening a 220 and re flaring the bottom. The pricker rod from the 220 was shortened and a hook put in it. The tip is from a butane lantern (0.005, I think its the smallest orifice Coleman has).
Then I just added parts as I came across them. The reflectors lower bar became a good handle to pick the lantern up. It is a little heavy for the 222 bail. The heat deflector is from a quicklite.

Not much of a Frank here, but I found this full LP tank at a flee market for $5.
The LP gas alone must be worth the $5.
Maybe I need to find a sea foam vent that will fit on the north star ?

Been a while since I built a frank, so here yah go. B/46 fount and leftover 242/200a parts. Made a little shade similar to the medical 252 ones. I think it looks pretty sweet.

Reverse Christmas Lantern - Christmas lanterns were originally a Model 200 or 200A with a green fount and a red vent.  I painted a 200A fount red, painted the collar and burner cage black and added a green vent from a 'donor' lantern to display for the contrast.  I actually prefer the red fount/green vent version.

Wesley,

That shade is awesome!


Ed,

I'm really liking that reverse Christmas lantern.  It really stands out because it's so different.  Plus, it's a black band!  😉

If your gonna make a frank, why not do it with style. Hand made the frame and shade holder. Forgot to bring the generator so I'll light it up later.

The replacement globe was all that I had on hand. I thought about ordering a mica from Fred for it, just to add another something from another era, but I'll have to wait until the cash flow comes back up. Until then, I'll just leave the MIC replacement there to keep the bugs and cat away from the mantles.

Is the tank a refrigerant tank?

The tank is from the base of an Amish floor lamp. It had handles on the top like a refrigerant tank would have (It may have been a refrigerant tank originally). I cut those off in order to use a 220C collar on it. Originally, there was a length of blackpipe about 4' long coming out of the top with a series of reducers and adapters and finally a leacock valve and burner assembly on top. I removed that and reworked the bung. I did use a reducer to drop down to 1/8" pipe thread. I filed the threads off of the brass valve from a 220 and rethreaded it in 1/8" pipe thread as well. I reused the copper tube that ran down the blackpipe for a fuel pickup. Since I used a different valve, I had to solder the copper tube inside the bottom of the valve. I left the tube about an inch shy of the tank bottom to reduce the amount of debris that may be pulled into the valve assembly. A little Gasoila on the valve threads to seal the deal and it makes light.

Late to the party Frank. A crappy quicklite fount and collar, crappy 200a valve (busted lever), an agm single burner frame, a 2 piece 242 vent, and a 200a bail. Threw on the Sears knob for some pizzazz.

Can I play, too?  This is the "275 Metamorphosis" table lamp.  Didn't you ever wonder what would happen to a 275 if you left it long enough to come out of its ugly cocoon?

This is a 275 fount, milk glass shade from an old wickie, and a valve from a Sears 200A equivalent.  It is all held together with custom built stem pipe, shade holder, mahagony spindle, and converted to kerosene.

My last two: 

The 242-200C (Canadian) was because the last 242c I got recently at a yard sale had hols develop in the bottom of the fount while shaking the rust flakes out in the past week or so...  

The 24275 was my version of the Picnic table lamp I liked so much, and was made from bits and pieces from several sources.

This one keeps morphing:  Started with a 222 and stuck in it on a 295 fount, then a Norhtstar fount, and most recently a 321 fount.  I still want a 621 fount for it...

Hi everyone...
Bringing back an old thread with a Frankie I cobbled together starting with a turd . It's got a 242 valve with a 286 burner 220f collar and a loovered shade from a Brinkmann propane lantern . I got the idea from another collector here on the forum a few years back ...it was a fun build ! 
Thanks and stay safe everyone and let's see those Frankie's !!
