OTHER PRODUCTS, PLANS AND DIY

Since I have a fully equipped wood and machine shop I also have many other interests as well.
These items may also be purchased or downloaded for free.

Coleman Lantern and Stove Check Valve Removal Tool

 

If your Coleman lantern or stove no longer holds air the seal on the cap or the check valve is usually the culprit. If fuel is left in the tank for an extended period of time it has the potential to "gum" up the CV. This tool allows you to safely remove the CV and clean it or replace it.

What makes this tool special, well, Coleman uses a proprietary thread pitch for the check valve. The die to make this tool is VERY expensive

Made a couple of these for myself and fellow Coleman enthusiast, since they turned out really well, I've done several small production runs for others to purchase 
 

The outer tube/prongs are made from A513 alloy steel that has a higher tensile strength than mild steel but not hard enough to damage the check valves slots. The threaded shafts are made from mild steel (1018) to limit and damage from aggressive usage and residue when threading it in the check valve.
 

Comes with 2 threaded shafts that will fit almost all Coleman Check Valves and instructions.
 

This tool will fit most Coleman white Gas and Kerosene lanterns and stoves: i.e. 242 243 200 200A 220 228 236 237 327 427 635 639 etc.
 

Coleman Cabin Stove Check Valve Removal Tool

 

Same as above but for the large Coleman Cabin Stove.

What makes this tool special, well, it's long and has a larger OD. Coleman uses another proprietary thread pitch for this check valve which is also different than the lantern Check Valve. The die to make this tool is even more expensive!


These are hard to make. It's a multi-step process of machining, boring, TIG welding and more machining.
I made one for a fellow Coleman enthusiast and he loved it! They turned out really well but these are one offs and are made to order.
 

The outer tube/prongs are made from A513 alloy steel that has a higher tensile strength than mild steel but not hard enough to damage the check valves slots. The threaded shafts are made from mild steel (1018) to limit and damage from aggressive usage and residue when threading it in the check valve.

This tool will only fit the Colman cabin stove.
 

Coleman Lantern Carry Case Plans and
a How-to Video on YouTube.

 

Fun little project to build a custom fit lantern carry case.

These cases are made from 1/8" Baltic Birch Plywood (or 1/4" underlayment plywood) with reinforced solid wood corners.
Spary paint of your choice, Chome hardware from Home Depot and Coleman sticker from OldColemamParts.com
 

You can watch the video and download the free plans. Tailer the box size to your lantern. Just measure your lanterns height and that will be the internal height of the box. Adjust the total hieght and width accordingly.

 

If you are not into DIY, I also make these boxes for sale as a Flat Pack (you just have to glue and paint) or as a complete box.

 

Fender Tweed Deluxe Amp Badge
 

Custom made guitar amp badge. I'm a hobbiest Tube Amp maker and when I made '59 Fender Tweed Deluxe 5E3 and it needed a badge for it. Yes, I could have purchased a "Fender Deluxe" badge but Fender didn't make my amp, I did.

I couldn't find an "Deluxe" badges that seemed suite the script and style. 

I got a bunch of stickers made up that just say Deluxe in the same sort of font (which is public domian). A bit different than the original but close enough that most people won't think anything is "off". 

 

Stickers are a white vinyl and are 3/4"High x 2-7/8"Wide  

 

The badges are hand made on sheet metal, spray painted Kona Brown and clear coated for protetection.

 

Stickers are $3.00CDN Each

 

Compete Badge is $15.00CDN Each
