How did I make this:

Look like this:

Well, I'll tell him, and you all too, although it goes against the machinist code of keeping secrets from, eh.... Muggles.


4.jpg 
First off, measure a good one so I know how long it is supposed to be when it's not flattened out.  Then cut off the bad tip.  Then drill the hole in the center of the threaded part bigger, but just for about .150" deep.

Then make a new tip with a stub that will fit inside the old air screw.


5.jpg 
Stick the new tip into the hole that was drilled for it, then solder it in.  Run a drill down the center of the air screw to the correct depth to make sure the air passage from end to end is clear.


6.jpg 
Drill the cross hole under the point on the end so air can get into the lantern.  Finally, demand gobs of money from the poor owner, and when he pays the ransom, ship him the repaired item.

Don't tell the other machinists that I squealed.   🙂

Absolutely astounding! That could not be done by any rational machine shop round these parts.  Takes a special talent and the extortion that was offered was taken care of and I have change from a Jackson. Its awesome to be on ccf

Dealing with today's youth, and most of their parents it seems, the very idea that things can be repaired is almost lost.  People can't comprehend that parts can be made, by people, right at home.  Parts have to be bought at a store.  Stores seem to posess some voodoo magic that creates parts, and that is beyond the reach of mere mortals.  It is refreshing to see an entire community here that understands that things can be fixed, parts can be made, and it isn's that hard to do it yourself.  Bravo to the CCF.  And a tip o the hat to Dean-o for being the master mechanic (The old toolmakers where I worked called any skilled tradesman a "mechanic") who is willing to guide this room full of apprentices.  You break the big intimidating task down into steps that make sense.  We all learn a little more.  The craft is not lost.  And with luck, some youth will se what is done here and they might be inspired to reach higher.

Nice machine work!
Also, it looks like a rocket taking off. You sure you don’t need to tie that down?!?

While I can't even come close to your professional standards, I did make one from a brass toilet bolt. Not pretty but it works.

That'll work, Ed!  Pretty is nice, but function trumps all.  Do you have a lathe?  Just wondering.

Thanks for the comments, folks.  I'm glad for the interest and happy to hear from my Coleman friends.  🙂

Quite interesting! I need to get to learning on my dad’s Metal lathe and other Metal tooling. I have really only felt with wood (can handle almost anything that way) but Metal always seems like it would be super difficult.

I also would be willing to invest some time developing new skills.  Might need to retire first!  My experience us that brass is super easy to work with.

No lathe, just hand tools, file, drill and tap/die set. This is what it looks like next to the real thing, which I acquired later. IMG_1374__1465172331_33851.jpg

Lathe work can intimidate folks easily, but in its simplest form a lathe is just a spinny thing that holds stuff.  My first "lathe" work was done by chucking an old brass bolt in a drill press chuck and working it with files.  

Regarding wood vs. metal working, wood drives me batty at times.  I cut it to within 1/16" and it warps 1/8" before the blade stops spinning.  I can cut metal to within 0.001" and it stays there.
