The finds of today!

The two lanterns I found today. One I have no idea what it is because it only has the writing on the top and it is covered in rust. Then the green one came with a reflector and lantern safe. I thought there was no way I would be luck enough to have anything in there. I found a wrench and two packets of mantles. The silver one I have to silver solder four vertical cracks on it. It was going to be pretty until I found that. Now its going to be a user.

Are you talking about cracks in the fount? If so, don't waste your time trying to solder it. It will never be safe to use. The green one looks like a good user, though.

Well that's what I have been finding online. I need a new bedside lamp so................ya. I hate wasting money so might as well get some use out of it.
