lanterns
#1
A few years back I purchased some lanterns from WT Kirkman.
I also picked up a couple burners they had that fit onto Mason Jars.
Thought I would post it up.

It's a good lantern resource.

I completely forgot I had them. I did some reorganizing and came up across them again.

Back when ordered them they were available with just the burner and chminey. I think thery were onlt $5.

Also they sell wicks by the roll.

I saw that on the wicks. I don't need any more pint jars, so I was thinking of just ordering the bare kit with the burner, jar ring and chimney and then ordering a roll of wick.

I bet I can find lantern fuel around here pretty cheap if I hit some of the stores that cater more to the amish.

You can get it at $ stores...same brand.

FYI Kerosene can be used as well.
I use Kero in my lanterns.
I wouldn't use it in the house except in an emergenct, but when the flame is adjusted properly it won't smoke.

It looks like the wick that comes with the mason jar lanterns is 3/4 flat. I have a roll of 7/8 flat and it will feed into the mason lantern.
It's a bit tight, but it goes. I think I bougt some 3/4 wick at one of the local hardware stores for some other lanterns. The 7/8 I purchased for my dietz lanterns

That's where a lantern like this comes in handy. I have a similar model. Todays batteries have a shelf life printed on them. I take a case of batteries and break them in to 8 packs and use a Food Saver type machine to vacuum seal them.

I have a couple of lanterns and oil lamps and I have a few bottles of smokeless/scentless oil.

I'm not into the battery deal. Only for flashlights and radios, which are occasional use items.

Lanterns put off some real good light at a minimal cost. I keep a couple gallons of lamp oil on hand, and a few gallons of K1 for beyond that.

Kerosene is perfectly safe to use in a lantern, it just smells a bit.
