Hello all,

I have asked a couple times in the classifieds about a couple parts for a turner brooklure lantern with no luck. I love the design of this lantern and have been wanting one for since I became aware of them. 

This lantern isn't a beauty queen but it pumps up, holds pressure, all moving parts move, but it is missing the control rod and the part the generator screws onto. I know I can fabricate the rod and since I haven't been able to find the other part I have been thinking about how to make it and have an idea. The bottom half is the same thread size and count as the top threads on a 220 burner tube. Does anyone know what size it is or maybe even have a Thread Die that will fit it? It has a thread count of 27 and the tube diameter is 1/2 inch OD. I have seen 1/2 inch 27 tpi dies but want to make sure this is the correct size before I order on. I know pipe sizes aren't measured by the actual diameter, a 1/8th npt is way bigger than an 1/8th inch for example.

I have also tried searching on here for the size but haven't found the right answer, but if someone knows of a past post I'd appreciate the link.

Thank you and sorry for the long post
Mike

Are you trying to fabricate an air tube, that is 1/2" diameter with threading of 27 tpi on the end(s)?

I extended the threads on an air tube with one of these Made in China dies from eBay:

 It took a couple weeks to arrive from China, but it worked fine.

Have you tried to see if someone has an old Turner 
that has the same parts ? 
 This Lantern was made by Turner and I remember 
them having a similar mechanism.. I sold a couple of Turners 
last year and there were some spare parts.... Let me see if I can
figure out who I sold them to to see if he still has the spare parts.

Bill,
That's the info I was needing, just wanted to make sure it was in fact that size before i ordered a tool. It's not the burner tube, it's a part that holds the frames to the valve body and then the generator attaches to. It looks like the valve body from a 288 can work if you turn the body down and tread it. I may post images in a bit of my plan

Yeah I have turner listed but maybe should have made it clearer that parts from other turners will work. I did have a couple people look for parts with no luck. If you can help it would be awesome, although I may still try my solution just to see if my idea works. The tinkering is a close second to the hunt for me.
Thanks
Mike

GrizzlyBob,
The Dude contacted me and we got things worked out I believe. I'm really excited to finally find parts and communicate with more people on here directly. I want to thank you for your help in putting us in touch. The people on here really are top notch.

Thank you and everyone else who has replied in my search,
Mike

Grizzlybob,

The dude hooked me up with what I needed, I've got it mostly back together and checked over but haven't finished yet. Maybe I'll go out and try to finish tonight now that it has warmed up enough to spend time in the garage after work. I am planning a new post with light up and a proper thank you to you guys for helping me out.

Thanks for checking on me 
Mike
