That's too funny!   8)

This thread is cool!  It's funny, since when you guys mentioned the hiss of a Coleman lantern, I could suddenly hear that sound from old camping trips growing up, and it really took me back.   :)
Y'all can pronounce it "puh-SKOLLY"

Believe this or not, almost every night my lady and i go to the hottub to relax..... We enjoy the night by Coleman Lantern light, a old Canadian 236 that is one of my favorites.... near 500 candle power

My camp, has 5 lanterns for general use, my house has over 100 lanterns on display/ use, some as old as 1925 and still working!

Whew, I am glad this post stirred some interest...  I always love to hear the "hissss" of a lantern.... the single mantle lanterns are preferred for "sound"

just remember, DO NOT overpressurize the tanks, some of the older ( 40's and 50's) colemans were made with Brass tanks( called founts).   

Also the added pressure causes "blow out" holes in the mantles, which is VERY bad. I had a old single mantle and the bottom of the mantle fell off after i had lit it and I didnt notice... 30 minutes later i went back to it and that thing was HOT, I could harldy hold the tank in my hands....

all the heat was shooting straight down toward the frame rest and tank... I recon a little while later it might have "popped" if I had not seen it and turned out off right away.

and there is NOTHING like cooking bacon and eggs on a coleman stove on a brisk fall day while sipping some coffee made in a old perculating pot....

Oh yeah, Coleman stove and lanterns, good gadgets!
Ahhhh, that is one of lifes great moments

I enjoy using coleman lanterns, naftha gas ones, and wouldn't get along without one during my camping expiditions. Only thing that I run into is the mantles are real fragile and the glass globe easily breaks, even when inside the carry case when it tips over. They are expensive pieces of glass ($15.00 ??? ::) ::) ). Thanks for the valued info JJ and others
Move'n on.

Yes, the mantles are fragile, just nature of how they are made and what they are made of. The globes are a weak link as well, but a coleman lantern is really worth its weight in gold if power goes out or you're on a camping trip.


anyone ever have a question or maybe help with parts, feel free to PM me.
