Nice bunch o' triples Chris. I wouldn't be to blame for your addiction if you didn't have an addictive type personality. I"m more of an enabler. Doug

Well, whatever that means... :D

I am continually (more than once, as in "daily") consoled by my collection. I can count on one hand the lanterns that don't run or that I don't find interesting; the rest of it consists of everything I find cool about the mid-century Coleman line. I have accomplished a mastery of these tools, I have every piece (and more) that I would want in my trailer for my camp.

Who needs matches when you have a blowtorch? (after lighting the blowtorch with the matches) :? :twisted:

Aw, shucks, fellrz... you're gonna make me work this morning, aren'tcha? :NC :lol:

Here's a quick setup for you. This isn't everything I want in my trailer (I will keep some nickel pieces in there too), but here's an early-'50s-themed picture
including the neat metal folding table (and storage!) Kirk asked about.

Image


Dagnabbit! Forgot about putting the blowtorch in the first pic...

If you continue wondering if I have this or if I have that, chances are I won't have everything... I do have a couple of Coleman 1-gallin jugs and a couple of diamond-pattern coolers, but that's about it. Not much room left for anything else! I have everything I need but a top, doors, cabinets and a galley hatch! Hee!

Loving the Coleman Goodness and of course the Blowtorch!

Should I start a Blowtorch Thread? :thinking:

Yes. Tables are High Wide and Handsome. At least the older suit case style tables are. Here is mine

I suppose I will let a suit case style table substitute for a 3 burner to be a full member.

The Coleman tables look cool. They are another thing that I have been looking for, haven't seen one in person ever! I would use the table, but I don't think the stools would work for me. Would take about 2.1 seconds before my fat ash would rip the canvas and fall through the opening. :lol:

Randy! That table of yours is in mint condition! and it's flat, too... look at the reflection in the tabletop....

I noticed my table has one out-of-plumb leg (left front in my pic). Seems at least one spot-welded corner bracket wasn't installed squarely. Some careful flat-filing should allow that one wonky leg to then-match the others.

Cool thread! Let's see some more three-holers!

:lol: :thumbsup:
