Here's a 5-65 Sears 2 mantle. I found it for $15 locally and since I didn't have any Sears models, I grabbed it!

I have to say I like the different color scheme of the Sears models.

I hate to repaint them if there's any original paint left so this one got the usual vinegar bath for the rusty frame and clean/polish the rest. 

Even the chickens approve.

Thanks for looking. Enjoy!!

I like the color scheme, too.  The chipped paint gives it character.  So, just out of curiosity, what do you do with the lantern once you've cleaned it up and got it running?

I like to cycle through my small collection and use the lanterns. Anything from a full blown camping trip, walks around the property at night with the missus or just sitting on the porch with a beer and listening to the hiss. I know it sounds cliche but the smell and sound of the lantern is soothing. "Hiss Therapy."

Nice clean-up.  Glad you left it original.  Look at it this way-- you bought a Poultry Lantern and saved $2500 dollars!

You just soak the frame in vinegar? How long? That turned out really nice!

The vinegar dissolves the rust. Then I just polish as normal.

Heat helps the vinegar process not take so long. How long depends on how much rust.
