Hey good people
The newly acquired KookLite has a ring that is setting on top of the reflector. See the center of the photo.
Is this ring standard equipment?

The vent rides just a hair too high, so the bail cannot fit into both of the burner chamber bail holes at the same time.  
And it does boil water! Although it takes a long time to do so.

Yep.  Here it is on mine, pre-fettle:

Those holes on mine barely line up to get the bail in. It's a pain.

I wonder if the Coleman globe is part of the problem? The front door on mine won't close with the Coleman on it, so I replaced the globe with one I made from SS screen:

With the enclosed reflector, I hope it will work well in the cold, as this is a perfect heater to place between my feet under the camp table.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Pretty sure the factory globe is slightly smaller than the Coleman bulge.

Mine has the ring also. I found a MIC globe fits better in mine, Doesn’t interfere with the door as much. Don’t know if it was just that particular globe or not. Mine doesn’t boil water, close, but no.

That ring provides the guide for the reflector and sliding door.   No?  

I would have thought a metal ring on the globe would eat globes...

Different mantles and/or air fuel mix might make a difference for ultimate "cooking" temp.  A bit rich should cool it, so any air restrictions, or wear in the orifice...

Timm, Mine does not have a front door, only the reflector.  Until this thread, did not know they were supposed to.  Can you take a few pics/closeups of the front door, open and shut? I like the screen globe, that may be the solution to my bail fitting problem.

Here are some pics of the door:

[49688915052_7d76382a9f_b][49708942398_56efb81d4b_b]

Door is the farthest part in the second pic.

[50006954887_0df8b636b2_b][50006700041_97db2f60a3_b]

With the door closed, very little light escapes. I think this was meant as a hunting blind heater, as I can't think of a lot of other uses that require a black-out lantern.

That's beautiful, Timm.  Will defiantly have to fabricate a front door.  Is that high temperature silver paint? The stainless screen globe makes perfect sense in a black-out lantern.

I always thought the door was to direct more heat upward when trying valiantly to boil water.

I agree; it should help.

Willy: That's Rustoleum High Heat 2,000F Flat Aluminum (248904). I use it without a primer and get fine results. I've used it on stove grates and it lasts for years. It's a good match for what little paint remained on the silver parts of mine.

The stoveheattern started as a rusty charcoal briquette:

Wish I could find a repro decal.

Keith: With the door over the lighting hole and the doubled collar, I'm pretty sure it was meant as a black-out heater. Night hunting? Not real sure why you'd want a no-light heater, but this does the job very well, at much less weight than a CIA 200A.

I'm with Keith, I think the door is meant to trap the heat and send it upwards. You know, for making tepid coffee.
