    Yeah that is a good one. The model should be marked on the base rest. Could be as early as 1915-1930.60CC9F9E-BB0C-4CFD-9EE3-5737BE1D2AF28FA3CAC7-8AB2-4300-8D3C-F38E2AB2B7EC

    Model QL, cleaned up nice! Everything looks like it should work, put some lanterns on it, hope they are the right ones πŸ˜†

    How do I light this bitch? Don’t I have to pump it or something πŸ˜†

    Been following this thread for a while thinking “I need one of those”. Had one all along. Thanks Uncle!! πŸ˜›

    The super old ones take a separate pump to push air in the little hole on the filler cap valve. You could probably use compressed shop air if you are careful not to over pressurize it.

    Are the pumps available? Those mantles ok or are there smaller ones for the older lanterns?

    Use a torch to burn the mantles, and they’ll shrink.

    Here is a new pump on eBay.
