Hello again! I find myself lacking in the generator department all the time from random finds I come across and, most the time they start hard. Do they and if so where do I buy generators in bulk?

     I HIGHLY recommend investing in a vevor ultrasonic cleaner like this.  https://www.ebay.com/i/323523680810?chn=ps&mkevt=1&mkcid=28 
My friends don’t call me “Lantern Levi” for nothin’,
if they did call me that.

Looking for bday lanterns 8/38, 8/41, 
10/25, and 8/07

The biggest lie I tell myself is

+1 for use of ultrasonic cleaners.  I bought a cheaper one designed for jewelry - works great to clean out generator parts.  Also great for check valves!

     I bought the ultrasonic that I linked, and I use it for everything on the lantern except for the vent and frame. It polishes brass for me and it gets rid of varnish on nickel to half the work. It’s great.

Depending on how much you are into this hobby, you can also make your own pricker/cleaning rods.

I don't use it often, but also consider an ultrasonic cleaner to be a good tool to have available.   I use a home-size jewelry cleaner for small parts.  I think I paid $4 for my current one at Goodwill, which happened to be half-price that day.

Flammable liquids, open flame, what could go wrong?

If you live in the US or close, you probably get bulk orders from Coleman for the 220/228/275 generators. They are still found in some stores in the outdoors section.

You can not currently buy direct from Coleman but or host does. 
I frighten easily!

To me a lamp without a shade is creepy!

I clean what I can when I have the time. The problem is time is little with my paying jobs and I usually have an hour at night to watch whatever one I hang on the front of the house. I’ve also ran into the  orifice expanded a great deal on some .
