Is the bottom left a CL-2 or CL-1?

CL-2/288. Average condition.

There was also a Powerhouse lantern from '86, I don't have one of those. Basically a 220 size lantern with adjustable brightness.

I would like the powerhouse but $35 +frt gets painful.

CL-1 is intriguing but I never see them.

Its been pretty slim pickings in general, I have inquired about a couple but they never respond back.

Yeah.... it's not a rare lantern by any means, I thought even $35 for it was too much. Probably would have jumped at $20 though.

Ermagerd. Now I need one of those.

Haven't tried out the oven yet... I've moved it between workbenches about 34 times but haven't had time to clean it out yet. Maybe if it's nice out over Thanksgiving weekend I'll dig into it while I'm smoking a ham.

I sniff fuel for a living. Don't judge me!

I didn’t know those even existed. How small is that thing. 6” tall?

Not that little. Guesstimating around a foot. I have only ever seen pictures. I think kinda big to stuff in a backpack... probably why they are scarce.

At one time, a few of the companies making blended fuel canister stoves offered lanterns that with the same lindel valve setup. They were reasonably light and significantly smaller than the Coleman liquid fuel versions because the fuel was contained separately. I haven't seen one in ages though.
Edit - I was wrong, they do still exist. Here's one from Primus:

Yeah, gas powered backpack lanterns don't sound terribly practical in general for backpacking.

I figured everybody had gone led by now.

There was a time when you'd still see them pretty regularly. And maybe it's just that I don't backpack with same groups of people anymore (like Scout troops when I was a teenager). But yeah, definitely not something I run into much now.
I did bring a candle lantern on the New Hampshire trip. But that was as much about burning off humidity in a single wall tent as anything.

Yeah, for backpacking, candle lanterns are a thing. Not batteries to worry about. Of course, there is the whole needing a way to light the candle but if you can light a fire, you got a way to light the lantern.
