Thanks guys, hope I don't regret not clear coating the steel burner assembly.. Figured it would probably burn off. Wasn't sure what to do with the steel direction disk either... Good enough for me I guess ðŸ˜

L.J., I start with electrolysis (let it do it's thing while I work on other projects) Electrolysis for me usually leaves small black spots where the rust was... Not sure what that is but I scrub it with a plastic brush in the sink most if it usually comes off, but what doesn't will in a short citric acid bath. Then another rinse and scrub with clean water and brush. Then dry and 0000 steel wool smooth. Then I clear with VHT satin clear.

I always hear how difficult the 220 series is to work on, but I've done a lot of these and my only complaint is every cage is rusted... At least in the bottom of the burner area where it's hardest to get my fat hands ðŸ˜

You really do nice work, Toby, that looks great! Your pictures are really nice, too-reminds me that I need to get a new camera one of these days.
I do really like all the different settings for those pictures, though.

Toby, thanks for getting back. I haven't ventured into electrolysis yet. At some point though I'd like to set up an E-tank.

Yep, burner frames are usually the pits. After cleaning the vent and globe I just dive into the frames to get 'em out of the way. Makes it way nicer on the re-assemble.

Me too... It's rarely needed especially on a complete rebuild like this one... But it's fun ðŸ˜
Sometimes you'll get the green flames like a stove, also kinda neat.

I have no way of knowing as it is a very old repaint... Color was close to original so I left it. I just researched lanterns of the same month and year and they all had the decal, so I went with it. Being a repaint it will never be all original as I know some of the parts are not as well... But the date on the bottom and it's significance is good enough for me as there is little left from era of time..

I had one just like that one, but for some reason it came with a "C" collar (I knew it had been swapped later because it was clocked wrong). The strike on the base was the same too - very light on the right "1", that made me think "1  43" for a while. Mine had the decal. Later I kind of thought it might be a BX, but there weren't as many steel parts as others I've had. I sold it before I knew too much about the BX, and didn't note some of the details.

mine has a "C" box that has been re-stamped "220BX". It is a '43 and has a label. But I was under the impression that the early ones did not have the label.

Absolutely beautiful!!  That was like watching a piece of cast iron go from rust to a shiny seasoning. Amazing work! 👍👍
