Heikki....those are some great lanterns...I know you have a thing for Coleman...but those are still really nice ones, and look at it this way...we don't get a chance to get things like that over here as often as you do! I tried to read the info about them...but you guys in Finland...I dunno...it's like you have a whole 'nother word for everything! :lol: Doug

Older Tilley, Primus & Petromax lanterns are very collectible here in the states. There is also Coleman UK & Japan product the go for big $$$ here but are very reasonable in Europe. If I was you I would look for an older Tilley, Primus & Petromax lantern. You would have a better chance finding parts for them also.

You can see some here in the international lantern sections.

Hi Jeremy

I didnt know that the folks in the USA would be interested so much in the Primus, Tilley and Petromax and Radius and .. :oops: Its true too what you say in finding parts for these here. ;)

Its mainly the Sveeeeeedish Lanterns that I favor over the others though but yes them could do. 8)

So its Coleman, and then Primus.. :lol:

And Im searching for the Valmet, Homelux which were made here however they seem to be the most difficult to find even though they are Finnish Made. But I believe someone out of the 5.5 million Finns may have one in their back pocket somewhere,s or was it the back 40ty. :lol:

I,ll be searchin. Even though it maybe like a gold panner looking for that big nugget. :lol: But if you ever come to Reindeerland you know what you can always bring over. :lol: :lol:

Regards Heikki :D
