I read a post about Levi wanting a big cp lantern, but wanting to steer clear of kero as he's not use to it, but in another recent post admitting some challenges with even the CF fueled lighting.

So having got some more DA for pre heating I had to light the 1/53 CA 237 
I can understand people's aversion to having to have DA for pre heating... but I love the process.

Just alight and you look at the lantern differently whilst you wait...

A little longer and it shares more...

And a kero always let's you know when to crack the valve by flaring the last of the last burns kero whilst still burning the DA

After that, it's instant light!

Nice light up, Andrew.
There's an automotive gas line antifreeze product that I use called HEET, available in the U.S. (maybe elsewhere too, I'm not sure) and can be found at gas stations and many convenience stores as well. It's basically DA.
I also enjoy the preheating process. It's no trouble at all. It just take a few moments and you only have to open the fuel valve about 1/4 turn to run.
...now I'm inspired to fire up my 237 tonight.

Ahh, the hunt continues for a 500cp and now a quick lite.
My friends don’t call me “Lantern Levi” for nothin’,
if they did call me that.

I like the whole sequence of lighting kero stuff. Nice one Andrew.

I enjoy the sequence of pre-heating a kero, too.

One thing I don't like is that I sometimes like to light one up in the daytime, and the alcohol flame is nearly or completely invisible. I've found that adding a short piece of Tiki torch wick makes the flames visible in daylight, and also makes it much easier to light in extreme cold.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

@Smudge Heet from the yellow bottle. As Californian this is my only option for DA and 91% alcohol <(will soot) so I stick with Heet

I used epoxy glue, copper tube, and small engine fuel hose to adapt the HEET bottle for EZ dispensing.

I also love the pre-heat ritual.  In bright light conditions, I just feel for the heat and watch the bubbling.  Andrew, nice pics.

Maybe in 2060, when I get my 90th 237, I’ll enjoy preheating. Lol

Hmm, but they’re technically easier. Still no need for alcohol

On a good preheated quicklite I usually don’t have any flare ups. Most of the time it will start to light before I even touch the valve.

I have a Quicklite. Man that thing is scary lookin. I took it apart in March. Bent the burner and destroyed the nickel. A lot of it is gone and the rest, very thin.

In my opinion a quicklite is faster to light than an instant light... Call me crazy ðŸ˜
