Propane lantern, stove, & heater manufacturers N - Z

These Sunbeam Trailmaster lanterns were made by Sunbeam's
Neosho Products Company, Neosho, MO.
These double mantled lanterns are Model 5141 (left),
in Mike Fleener's collection, and Model 5179C (right).


The Paulin company succeeded Humphrey Products in Kalamazoo, Michigan,
in the later 50's or 1960's.

This Camplight with a simpler tubular burner
can be compared to the Humphrey version here.
This light is in Glenn Knapke's collection.


Three versions of the Prepo Lite 400 LP lantern from Brien Page's collection.
The version on the left includes a tip cleaner that rotates and moves vertically.
Note the difference in height caused by the change in the mounting
of the globe cage to the LP (liquified petroleum gas) canister.
Prepo Corporation was located in Edgerton, Wisconsin.
The fuel canisters are no longer manufactured.


Prepo made this one burner stove, Model 105.
The LP fuel canister assembly fits in the stove for storage.
An adapter (not shown) was necessary to take the king size fuel canister.
This stove is in Brien Page's collection.


Prepo also made this one burner stove, Model 107.
This stove is also in Brien Page's collection.


This Prepo Model 208 aluminum and steel stove
used a separate LP fuel canister
inserted from the rear of the stove,
for each burner.
This stove is in Brien Page's collection.


This Model 2158 lantern was made by Primus Sievert, Sweden.
George Rocen has this unfired lantern
with the box and instructions.


Primus made this propane two burner stove for Sears
which was sold as Model 72476.
The unfired stove, in Brien Page's collection,
has a parts bag stamped Primus-Sievert AB,
made in Sweden.


Sievert, a Swedish company, made this Model 925 propane stove
which is dated Oct. 1059.
Closed (left), ready to use with the windscreen up (center), and showing the burner (right).
The refillable tank forms the base for the approximately 33cm tall stove.
This stove is in George Rocen's collection.


This Model 926 propane, 2-burner stove,
in Frederik Tivemark's collection, dates to 1963,
a couple of years before Primus and Max Sievert merged in 1966.
Frederick notes the light blue color is not typical for these stoves
and reflects the early 1960's.


Model 710-400 is Stansport's 4 mantle Magnum lantern.
It has a piezo electronic ignition and is rated at 1200cp.
This lantern is in Brien Page's collection.


The Thermos Division of the King Seeley Thermos Co.
made this Model 8352 Patio Light.
A small LP canister, that is no longer manufactured,
was fitted into the base from below.
A similar Model, 8351, had an open flame with no mantle.
This light is in Brien Page's collection.


The Tilley Lamp Co., Hendon, UK, made this Model BT25 Floodlight
that appears in a 1967 catalogue.
Paul Gildenhuys found this floodlight on his farm in South Africa and restored it.
The connection to a flexible LP gas line is in the lower-right in the right image.
Accessories included 2-5m tall tripod stands, a frosted lens, and a fog filter.
The lamp reflects 10,000 CP.


These lanterns were made by the Turner Corp. (Turner Brass Works), Sycamore, IL.
The lantern on the left, in Brien Page's collection, is Model LP5,
and attaches by a hose to a 20 lb propane cylinder.
The lantern on the right is similar to another in Brien's collection;
his is also identified as Model LP5 although this one has no identifying marks.
The simple designs are made with aluminum and steel.


This is another earlier Turner propane lantern model,
the Deluxe Camping Light.
The shape of this first propane container
presented challenges in the design of a stable fixture.
This early "slant" solution was not used very often.
The ventilator is red porcelain over steel.


Paperwork that came with this lantern
identifies it as Model LP-444 and was made in the 1960's.
The ventilator is polished aluminum.
The ventilator and globe on this model are larger
than on the Deluxe Camping Light above.


The lantern on the left is marked Turner on the base plate and the valve is embossed LP5
This lantern, in Toby Botkin's collection, connects by a hose to a propane tank,
or it can be unscrewed from the base plate and mounted directly on a propane cylinder.
The lantern in the center was unmarked when Glenn Knapke repainted the base plate;
the original paint was as on the lantern on the left.
Brien Page's unmarked canister model (right) is date stamped 5 62.
Both lanterns, center and right, have a similar air adjustment screw on the stem below the frames.



The upper image is of a Turner LP-100 Propane stove,
one of three in Brien Page's collection.
Two of them have an early 3/4" diameter coupling to the propane cylinder
as in the lower image - inner coupling and cylinder.
Turner Brass thought they could set the standard for cylinders in the early '50's,
but recalled as many appliances and cylinders as they could a year later
and replaced them with the 7/8" diameter that did become the standard.


Turner Brass produced Winchester brand propane lanterns and stoves
after they had been purchased by another company.
Brien Page got this unknown model in the styrofoam box.
It has been little used if at all.
The built-in igniter (right) produces a spark
to light the propane gas.


An unknown manufacturer made this Hot n' Quik propane powered water heater,
which is stamped "Made in the USA."
The heater will lift water from a storage tank (not shown)
by using the upper white plastic pump to prime the heater,
after which it will siphon water by itself.
Heated water can be drawn from the heater's tank by lifting the pump handle.
This water heater is in Bill Elwell's collection.
