You should spend some time to look through all the old posts and stuff. Lots of valuable info. Plus, he sells rare and hard to find parts, things you won't find anywhere else. With this guy's help, I've rebuilt an old lantern and heater, that I bought off of hsolist for a fraction of what they're worth.

I just spent the last hour looking around that site and it is very cool to see some of those old lanterns.I have a 220F model I bought at a garage sale a year ago for 10 bucks and if im reading the date right I think it is 7/66.Does anyone else have any older models?

My dad's got a red 200A. Bought it new in 1962. One of my fondest memories of childhood is watching him fool around with that old lantern while camping at Hayes Lake state park. I remember thinking that was the neatest thing in the world.

I've got my grandpas coleman dual mantle, chrome/nickel plated tank, not sure what model right off the top of my head but I knew it hung in the kitchen and in the barn before there was rural electricity. It's not in perfect condition but it works just as nice as my dual fuel powerhouse! My best guess datewise is the early 1940's... Paul

Ive got a chrome nickle tank coleman too. Im not sure how old it is. When I was atound 6 years old I watched my dad trying to light it in the house and it flooded. The were flames 3 ft in the air. Dad threw it out the door. Later I saw it in the garbage pile. I took it out and hid it. When I started to plan my own fishing and camping trips in my mid teens I pulled out that old Lantern. Somehow I figured out it needed a new generater. Im 44 now, that old lantern and I have been on a lot of trips together. Was my primary light source when I lived in a wall tent in Alaska for 3 summers too. Its the only original peice of equipment I have since starting my outdoor escapades.

On most models, Coleman stamps the manufacturing date on the bottom of the fount (tank). Digits on the left mean month, digits on the right mean year. They did this even way back then.

that is a great site . thanks for the post , I have a few lanterns that are in need of repair and when I was younger we would just buy a new one. Now that I'm older and more thrifty I'll have to try to fix them again. I've tried a time or two but with not much success ,this will be allot of help.Metro

Something about a Coleman gas lantern. It can go and go and go. Finally broke down and bought a propane stove at an auction, but will probably never get a propane lantern. I have 2 different gas lanterns and one or both ALWAYS go with me ice fishing or camping.

    • A CO2 detector also protects you from what comes into your house thru a cracked window. Had mine go off last week on red. Turns out the wind had changed and generator exhaust was now blowing towards house. Generator was 50' from the house. 
    • After I got laid off awhile back I searched all of the above daily.  There would be some duplicate jobs posted on every site but a large number would only be found on one site or the other.  Companies seem to have their preferred job board and then stick to it for all their job postings so you really need to look at all of them.    Also don't over look the idea of targeting companies.  If you know a certain area you'd be looking to move to look to see what companies in that area might be able to use someone with your skills.  Then look at those companies job boards if they have them or send in a resume to their HR dept to see if they have any openings.  There are a lot of hidden jobs out there that don't get posted to a normal job board so you need to be savvy to find them.    A recruiter can also help but you need to find the right recruiter. I worked with a few and only one was really any good and had connections to the right kind of jobs for me.  If you can find one that specializes in your field then it might be worth connecting with one.  When i did it didn't cost me anything but a little bit of my time and they were able to hook me up with a decent contract job to help fill in the gap until i got on full time somewhere. 
    • Trump Touts "People Are Seeing Big Stuff” After GM Unveils 7,000 New U.S. Jobs   Confirming rumors that leaked yesterday, GM has just announced plans to invest $1 billion in its U.S. manufacturing operations and add 7,000 jobs domestically, over the next "few years".  Of course, the move follows similar announcements from Ford and Fiat-Chrysler over recent weeks in an apparent effort to appease the incoming Trump administration amid threats of a 35% import tariff and after years of outsourcing automotive manufacturing jobs to Mexico.  To add icing to the cake, GM notes that 450 of the new jobs will come from insourcing jobs previously moved to Mexico.          The winning continues...
    • Hyundai To Boost Investment In The US To $3.1 Billion Over 5 Years   Korea's Hyundai Motor Group said it plans to lift U.S. investment by 50 percent to $3.1 billion over five years and may build a new plant there - the latest auto firm to announce fresh spending after President-elect Donald Trump threatened to tax imports.      
    • This is our year! i feel there is something different about them! I see the passion and intensity they have. Putting the puck on the net is key!
    • OK, let's play you're game. Deficits and debt are no problem, I'll take your word for it.    Please tell me then:
      Why does YOUR party want to reduce the debt?
      Why was your party against debt when Obama was racking it up?
      Why do you vote for Republicans when you don't agree with them on very many issues?
    • What I worried about in the past and why I was not to high on them was because Parise and Sutter were supposed to carry the load but that is evidently no longer the case.  The Sophomores and Juniors have "figured it out" and have stepped up and are carrying the team...not to mention Stall is "reborn".  IMO as long as Dubnyk stays healthy I don't think we have anything to worry about. It is all about he playoffs now as they'd have to take a huge step back not to get in IMO....we'll so how far they can go....with this new found success.
