I have an old Feuerhand lantern which sat for years on the vanity in the bathroom as a backup in case of power outage. Came home to find the counter covered in kerosene after the tank leaked. Is there any easy way to seal a tank or is it just a display piece now?
Bottom seam. I'm hoping there is some sealer that the kerosene wouldn't destroy, I don't want to destroy the exterior patina. If it can't be sealed, it will just be a dry lantern on a display rail in the kitchen.
I was of the impression that typical tank sealing coatings were intended to seal raw steel against rust, not intended, nor capable of forming any significant pressure seal; but I would be happy to be shown otherwise.
