From Terry Marsh's site to me it looks like a 5 fount but the collar and the burner assembly looks like the 2m. As far as i can tell its never been apart. I wonder if there were transitions between the two ?

I definitely don’t know anything about it. So I sure hope someone can help. It’s in pretty good condition despite missing the pump and vent

Matt I looked at those and nothIng looks like what I have here. It really looks like a Nulite 5 fount and the rest is identical to a 2m. ( according to Terry Marsh’s pictures ) that’s all I know to go by.

Have you looked at Sunshine Safety?

Yes. I believe from looking around, the red valve wheel it has is synonymous to a Nulite

There we go ! All right at least I now know it wasn’t a mix of the 2. I did see 110m on the mixing chamber. Or at least that’s what I can make out. Do you know anyone who might have a vent or the pump assembly?

Mine has 110M on the mixing chamber as well, and I find that interesting because I have a Nulite 110M lamp without that. The lamp also has a different airtube that is on a 45 degree angle. Don't know of any vents, or pump assemblies around. You might try asking for those parts in the classifieds.

I have 3 Nulite lanterns and 2 lamps, but i'm far from being an expert on them. Someone might come along and help you out.

I have thought that this (below) was a 5. It has the original umbrella genny however the collar appears to be different than any I see in this thread.

Think of it how Coleman did theirs. The early stuff all had separate pumps, later on all the pumps were inside the founts. Likely, these are just parts left over from previous models as they keep improving. As someone said a transition. Its a great Nulite lantern regardless. Hope you find the parts needed

I recently saw a Nulite vent on ebay so search on nulite. I have a 2m and a 3m as well with the air tube at a 45 degree angle but my generator doesn't have a tip cleaner like yours. Both have the umbrella generator. Are you sure that is an original generator? An air tube with a 45 degree bend is typical with a 5.

Thanks for the heads up Gunny! I’ll check it out. Honestly I’m not sure if the generator is original or not. Others I e seen have a umbrella type generator. I’ve never had a Nulite before so I’m out of my realm on this one. Was hoping the veteran Nulite guys would lead me in th right direction. I’m not even sure if exactly what model it is.

The difference between a 2m and a 3m is the pump since it came with that option. Most pumps come with the chrome rubbed off from thumbs. I have a pump with the 3m having "Nulite" on it still and I paid extra for it since they say they are not usually marked.

My 5 came with an umbrella generator as the that type of generator is typical with match lighting Nulites. The instant lighting Nulites came after the match lighting lanterns which follows changes with lanterns with Coleman. The last two lanterns on the TM site are the instant lighting ones where only the one mantle lantern was recently identified from paper from the thirties.

Mine looks identical to cat235’s. Less the missing pieces. I’m pretty sure that’s the vent and pump I need. But can’t seem to find anyone with one that they’re willing to part with so far.

I have had a couple NULITE umbrella gens that the umbrella was removed. the mantles will hit the umbrella, and maybe someone removed them.

B----y Nulite gives me a pain. So many just don't fit the catalogue descriptions. I think this is  3M. 5 had the angled air tube and 3 has this right angled type. ::Neil::

I think this one is different altogether because it has a cleaning rod ?

One of these days enough Nulite paper will surface and sort the mess out. I know they confuse me and we badly need paper. Odd thing is Nulite were selling lamps up to 1942 because Sears were selling table lamps in '41 and '42. There should be therefore paper from the 1930s at least but almost none has been found. We have only just bought two brochures which appear to be post 1930 but just two small flyers from the '30s seems to be very poor. There has to be more out there. You guys need to look in any boxed Nulites to see if there are instructions or other paper in there and if there is get it scanned please.

Neil do you know how the Nulite was originally marked and distributed. Maybe info could be found that route ?

My 3m came with a box but there was only 25% of it remaining. No model number was listed. It was sold separately to another one out on ebay where the box was more intact then mine and the fount was in a better condition.

Mostly adverts in Newspapers and magazines I think. Mind you from 1914 to 1925 I can't find many ads and only one asking for agents so I suspect they mostly sold through hardware shops and probably therefore only got serious in a trade magazine.

The boxes was just a thought. We all know that just now and then a boxed lamp turns up with a crumpled piece of paper in the botton of the box. ::Neil::

Thanks Neil for the info on the #3M. I've had mine 2-3 years and always thought it was just made from 2 lanterns. Hopefully more info will surface.
