Not much on the agenda today so decided to make a reasonable facsimile reflector for one of my user 236's. I like the idea of directed light and not being blinded all the time. Modelled it after an older wooden handled 220 style reflector but with a few mods to work on a 236. Still needs to be tweaked a little here and there and polished up some but I think it turned out okay. Went with a 220 style straight globe and just used some aluminum from an old road sign for the reflector and a wooden handle I salvaged from an iron. You'd better not have a limp wrist lugging this one around. lol

Well done Alex, how did you do the pins on the bottom?

Nice work, Alex!  I really like how you used the iron handle. I have made reflectors for probably 90% of my lanterns.  I find it much more easy on the eyes when one has the ability to use directional lighting.  And all you need is a pair of heavy duty gloves to remove the reflector if a full circle of sunshine is required.

Just a couple of nails cut off and welded.
