    I bought this 1967 Sears Model 476.74070 for something to do last winter. I finally got it to light for the first time this afternoon. It was pretty rough when I bought it but I think it turned out pretty well. I still have a few bugs to work out but it seems to run like a champ.

    On top of everything, I had the fount (tank) all ready for paint then dropped it on the garage floor and put a nice dent. I debated fixing the dent but decided to leave it figuring it would make a good conversation starter.

    Nice fettle job. I think that’s what one calls the act of refurbishing lanterns and such. I have a couple out in my garage awaiting repair myself. Thanks for reminding me.

    That is very nice looking.

    I have carried home too many lanterns, stoves, and heaters over the past 15 years. I have started to pass them up even at bargain prices. I recently saw three 2 burner stoves priced at 5 bucks each. I passed.
