You can call Lee up and order whatever size expander you want..
That would be good, just don’t get their universal expander set, it’s nothing more than a mouth belling set.

This will prevent the case mouths from looking like a snake swallowing a bullfrog. Just make sure you...

So I bought this Dietz #2 D-Lite lantern today and was cleaning it up and noticed something rattling around in the fuel tank. It was these two wood slugs .33 dia and 1.27 long. There was old stale fuel in it so maybe they could have swelled some. The lantern is a 1945 model. Any ideas.
