I have another project added to my list. This is a Jetson's era profane fuel lantern. Made by Turner, this version was sold by MW.

It's in pretty good condition. I will de-rust the frame and burner tube and then give it a fresh coat of hi-temp silver paint.

I think the hardest part of this project will be finding the long and thin propane cylinders.

So far I have scrubbed the frame and burner tube with Scotchbrite and fixed the bent valve handle. Click image for larger version - Name: res4627.jpg, Views: 1494, Size: 174.71 KB Click image for larger version - Name: res4629.jpg, Views: 1502, Size: 104.71 KB

Looks like the propane cylinders sold for propane torches would fit. That could be a source.

Cool lantern Tom! Very retro looking and appears to be in beautiful condition. The slender blue propane tank might work for you.

Looks like your table is either getting smaller or you collection is getting bigger! Hmmmm....

Just looked a little closer at one of your pixs. Are you becoming a stove also?!

Tom I have a lantern just like yours. You can get the propane cylinders at Your local walmart. It's the same as the ones used for plumbing. About any hardware store will carry them. I think they are really cool looking lanterns.

Evapo-Rust worked its magic. What you see now is just flash rusting. I will steel wool that off, prime and paint the frame when it warms up outside.

Okay, I steel wool'd the flash rust off the frame, primed it, and painted it with high temp silver. I will let the silver dry overnight before I handle it.

res3085.jpg res3086.jpg res3089.jpg 

And I also used some Meguiar's polish to try to remove the staining from the painted body. The stickers are paper, not coated so I had to be extra careful to not get any chemical on them.

So the next day, after letting the frame dry overnight, it was bright and sunny and I could see I missed a whole lot of area! So I had to spray it again and let it dry overnight once more.

Today I put the lantern back together. Once I get a correct propane cylinder for it I will install a mantle and take a money shot. [smile]

I went to my local OSH and found they had nice Bernzomatic cylinders in the perfect size. [smile]

So here it is before the first boom:

res4700.jpg 
After I figured out how to get it going, it works quite well. Not as bright as any of my Coleman CF lamps though. This air bleed is the key to get this lamp burning correctly and the adjustment is quite critical:

So here is the first light up, and the obligatory tree and fence shots. [tongue]

I thought this was pretty cool, but passed on it.  Being new here, and it being propane,well...you know peer pressure.  DANG!  Wish I'd bought it.  I thought it was just so funky.  BTW  It's Western Field, which is also Monkey Wards, right?

I have revisited my turner - Globe still broken and taped up!  When it happened - a long time ago - I could not match up any of the Coleman sizes - but as I know more now and have more Coleman Friends (here!) - maybe there is a replacement out there.

Size is below - perhaps could go 1/8" larger diameter if necessary

height - 4"
Top - 4-1/8" Diameter
Bottom - 3" Diameter

There's a lot of globes on ebay with one of these right now.  I'll PM it to you.  You can always sell off the rest as individuals, usually for more than you paid for them as a group.

Great mid-century color and design. Would not look out of place on an Eames table.

I have 2 of these. The one pictured was unfired, VHT coated burner frame  and clear coated the stand. I then put valve assembly of a inert red canister. Strange thing is that the valve assembly (which came from another turner lantern) and Frame tube did not align. I had to shim with 1/8 copper washers.  It seems the Frame tube was longer than my other lantern.  Or the valve fuel tube should have been shorter.  I decided since it was pristine to zip tie some wire and put a bulb in it for daily use much to wife's dismay. 
Does anyone know if they may have differing valve assemblies for these to explain the non- alignment?  Or perhaps this was the reason it was never fired? defect right from factory.

I have a Turner and wonder if anyone has original instructions.  Mine has a knurled nut (red arrow) that covers the air inlet orifices.  I am wondering how these should be adjusted in combination with the main gas valve.

I usually just adjust mine for air/fuel ratio to get the brightest glow. Also there should be a spring in that area to provide some tension so the air flow adjuster nut doesn't move on its own.  My spring was missing on one of mine and went to local HW store and found one close enough in dia and cut to length.

Thanks for that information.  Do you have a photo of the spring set-up you can share?  I am not seeing the spring in any of the photos I find of this type of lantern.  Sounds like a good idea.

Thanks for the image.  It looks like we have different fitting configurations. My brass knurled nut is used to secure the propane assembly to the lamps gas tube.  The silver steel knurled nut on my unit is what is used to regulate the air.  On yours it appears that larger silver knurled nut makes the connection and the brass is for air regulation.  Am I seeing that right on your lantern?

Yes. Interesting. I believe that may answer an early post of mine. It looks like they may have made slightly differing valve/lantern configurations at some time.
I have 3 of these lanterns but only 2 valve assemblies. My valves didn't align perfectly with one of my lanterns that I shimmed with 1/8 washer to align.
So in your case you may not need tension from a spring to hold the adjusting ring in place.

I had a slight alignment problem with mine as well.  The fitting on the bottle (and most bottles these days) is not perpendicular to the axis so I had to over tighten it a bit to get a better angle.

Have you made a case for yours?  I am thinking to make something in this shape like an old sewing machine case.

In an earlier post you mentioned a top OD of 4 3/8". Please confirm that your replacement is 4 1/8". Would a globe with a 4 1/2" top OD fit your lantern? Thanks!

Yes you were right I second guessed myself  when I saw the 4 1/8 post earlier.  I went out and measured  4 3/8  is spot on. I do believe it would be ok if it was 4 1/2 on top seems to be a bit of room to spare
