Finished going thru the 18 lamps I won a couple months ago, mostly ready to go, one Akron bit the dust after trying to stop a leak around the pricker lever shaft and broke the shaft off .  No globe for a Sears profane lamp and a few other yellowish lamps not shown.  Made a second AA Air O Lite and frankenlanterns from a "R" and "A" fount.  For me, those were great, but I saved the early Nulite lamps for last to fettle.  For new parts, only had to use one new genny I had and ordered two new Nulite gennys, only needed one as I got another genny to work.  Cleaned up many of the used gennys.  A parts lot I won with lamp burners, shade/globe holders was a gold mine of needed burner tubes, caps, finials, gennys and even a few burners.  Never checked into CQ's much before, so did not know they had more than the nickel finish founts.   At least now for awhile, no more vinegar smell or dealing with lye in the house.  A few of these had bent risers/air tubes etc after the UPS store packed them all together.  All have been tested, only tied mantles on a few, but they passed leak tests except one with a slight weep.  Forgot why flames would only exit the burner tubes with a torch on them until I checked here and read that when running w/o mantles, the fount only needs 5 or 6 pumps to create enough pressure.  Did make the one Akron lamp I broke the pricker rod shaft on into a torch lighting lamp with a Coleman burner and used some orings around the long fuel pick up tube to prevent air only from coming up.  Works, but may just tear it apart, worried about the orings failing.  Lots of fun, educational, activity for the last couple months.

Don't know who would have a stove.  🙂

Nice.

I am a big fan of CQ's, and use em when the power goes out. Just simple, clean, and they work.

I ran the brass colored CQ yesterday for an hour maybe, started right up, ran very nice.  Fired up both AA's and the A today.

Nice work Duane!  Any of them destined for camping?

With bugs, if I take one camping like Motorcycle Dan does, would have to be late in the season, although I did get a bug screen with the lamps.
Not sure which burner I put on the Akron, but it works.

From my experience here in Kansas where the wind never blows, a frankie lamptern is a better bet camping.  Breezes don't cool off the genny, bugs don't attack the mantles in a reenactment of the kamikaze attacks on the USS Laffey off Okinawa. That Akron would make a fine quicklight lamptern fount.

Wind never blows? Where's all these western winds coming from here in Missouri? ðŸ˜

I've heard it said that Nebraska sucks and Oklahoma blows but that's not always the case.  When it reverses in the winter and there's nothing between Kansas and Canada but a few strands of barbed wire it's time to hibernate.

Nice bunch of lamps, Duane!  Tackling 18 of ‘em must have been quite the undertaking.  I really enjoy using them around on the porch/deck/garage and in camp.  I like the light they throw, just enough to see but not blinding.

If you have the old parts to study and assuming they are similar to Coleman pricker levers, you might be able to fabricate one using a paperclip or similar.

Don't think so, lever is much thicker than a paperclip and even when whole, not removable, less so now.  Could maybe run without it, but the pickup tube is broken off now also.

"Don't think so"

I'm not familiar with your cleaning lever setup, so YMMV. I evaluated what I would need to do to if I broke the eccentric tip off a 220 cleaning lever while attempting to straighten the tip. It would be fiddley work, but sometimes a challenge gets the creative juices flowing.
