Items barely made it, UPS driver said big box arrived torn.  Bubble wrapped, but too many in a box.  Some of the 18 I won.  Get to learn about these.  Got a box of parts too, misc burners.  The nicest turban fount has a stress crack, a badly dented one looks ok.  🙁  Time to match parts, lots of shade holders with the burners.

Uh-oh, Duane, this does not bode well for other auction winners.  I was hoping for all those who won something shipping would be better than last year.

There was more larger bubble wrap to fill the void, but I think they needed fewer per box.

Wow  it looks like they thought it was shipping to a scrapyard. Was there any insurance on the package

$200 insurance, but who's to say if any damage occurred?  Maybe the one leaning tower of Pisa.  I was just hoping that what little I could see of the auction lots, lamps would be ok.  Imagine these were in the "to be fettled" area.  Happy to have many different lamps to work on.

PS:  With all this, the upper parts of a 243 with original globe arrived safely.  :)

Just opened my box from the auction. No damage BUT, I bought two "unfired" items and one of them has definitely been used. Very disappointed and won't be bidding remotely on any more Ron Stricker auctions. Will be contacting them to see if they will make it right.

I'm already using parts from the box of burners to add to the Q70 burner and a roto genny for it to get one lantern going later.  A Coleman model R fount is a Akron fount, model 84.  Slow going so I can citric acid soak parts.

Duane, that looks like a BIG box of fun. Heck, you can't take the money with you when you pass on so blow it now! At least that's my strategy and I'm sticking to it. 🙂

Alexxxxxxx, it's been stimulating so far, had been getting bummed loafing around.  Better stuff to come.  A Akron fount, model 84 in there, need to see if I can mate other stuff to it, even the Kerosafe maybe.  (Rubs hands together).

Two are almost ready to go, tie mantles on one, and free up the genny tube on another.  The Akron Coleman R look alike needs the burner/valve. : (
Went from around six lamps to almost 2 dozen.  Guess I can match the shade holders from the parts burners to these.

Can you send a pic of what you need - I may be able to help with the valve

Since I was able to win a AA Air o Lite a few months back, been looking for another to convert to kero.   Plus, looking to get the other early lamps, so the recent auction was a good enabler.

After correcting the slight, long "C" bend in the neat 152, I went back to view the Lots I won and none were bent, so all the 18 lamps and lanterns didn't fair the best in the box they were sent in.  Thinking the box was too heavy and when someone grabbed it to move, ripped the box.  The 152 has been the neatest so far, so many features I have never had.  Really cool and set up for kero too.

My lots should be arriving today but I didn’t buy a pile of lamps, just parts, a couple of hollow wire fixtures and a 427. I’m hopeful my junk is in good order but we shall see.

I run a 152 all the time out on the deck. It is carboned up enough it chases away skeeters so I leave it as found. It may be my favorite runner in the rotation. I really like it!
Happy fettling!

I frighten easily!

My current shade is Coleman!!

To me a lamp without a shade is creepy!

The 152 is neat, has the flats on the burner caps, different air tube, threaded ring on the bottom of the air tube, valve.  Had to use steel wool on the valve stem, was leaking, got most of it.  Unfortunately the valve knob got broken, so on my list of stuff to order.

I’ll have to look at mine closer, just been running it. It was leaking out of the tip cleaner a couple of nights ago and really needs all new packings!
