    I came across a listing for a lantern conversion for the c106 powered bleuet stove

    the bleuet was an early purchase for me when I got interested in stoves as I have a penchant for upright tins (no, I don't know why, my therapist is still working on it...)

    the kit, from the pneumatic tent company of dorking, looks unused but sadly there is no mantle holder, the pictures show only line drawings and I've been unsuccessful in finding images online to see about recreating one, inside the globe is a small thumb screw which holds a wire which in turn holds the mantle/holder over the burner head

    any who, some images

    ok, I have found an image from here on CCS (obviously), I'm not sure how I missed it as I went through the gallery before posting...but

    it appears to be just a wire hanger for a tie on mantle so will add this to my ever growing fettling list!!

    I featured the lantern in THIS post in the Lounge.

    Some photos, including ones of the mantle mount. A pin pokes through the tip of the mantle (I used a Coleman one) and the pin rests on the hoop.
