kerosene lantern

  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I've started to add oil and oil lanterns to my supplies. I already stock propane, kerosene, and candles for lighting, but feel it is wise to have as many options as possible. I've noticed that the metal frame lanterns I buy say to use only kerosene or oil, depending on the lantern. However, they...

    Hi Everybody! I just recieved the Lehmans non-electric catalog. I really wanted to order some oil lamps but I have no idea which one. If you have the catalog Fall/Winter 2010, they are on the cover and on page 9. I like the Jupiter Farmers Friend and the Original Easy light. Has anyone ever used...

    I asked my wife to pick up one of the $4.00 oil lamps at Walmart today. She went to check out and it kept saying "restricted item". The lady said she could not sell it to her. My wife told her that the shelf was full of them and nothing stating any type of recall. This Walmart is located south...

    I was searching on Coleman gas lanterns and found they make a single mantel lantern that runs on kerosene. They run under $70.00 # The feaures of this Coleman Kerosene lantern are: 3.99 lbs # Powered by 1.3 pints of kerosene fuel # 7 hours burn time # High light output - 320 candle power.

    I have both and was wondering. What would you suggest? Stock up on Kerosene and wicks? Or stock up on white gas, generators, pump parts and mantles? The advantage of Coleman lots of light, But lots parts that wear out, And they can be tempermental to start. The ol' kerosene "hurricane" lantern...
