    ANSWERED Chassis number

    you might have to sand the frame to find it. It could be anywhere from the beginning of the hump to where the photo shows.

    I just made the metal parts. Tubing the correct diameter and cut to length and a washer the correct diameter with a hole drilled to correct size.

    garage sale bargain.

    Went to a garage sale last weekend. Picked up a 1938 Coleman 242B lantern for a 5 dollar bill. Took it home and it lit right up. How many things were made well enough to still work so well after 80 years?
