Default Lookin for a guy in mobile grand Bay Area who makes pan lights

Maybe a long shot but I am looking for contact info on a gentleman who live in I believe mobile/grand bay and makes floundering pan style lights to sell. I think his name was Scott but not sure why and it's been years since I've spoken with him. Anyways I need a part for a light he made and cannot find it anywhere including online. If anyone could PM his phone number I would appreciate it.

I live in Mobile and never heard of him. Are you talking about Coleman pump up lights or propane? What part are you looking for? Most Coleman lights where made from converted Coleman Lanterns. There use to be a hardware store in Thoedore that converted gas light to propane but their gone now.

No these are homemade lights much bigger and brighter than anything Coleman has. The valve is bad but it's not a regular valve of course. Has the fine thread male end with jet going into air regulator. I got someone working on the number now but it'll be Monday before I get it.

I'll post a pic when I get a chance but it looks about like those except handle is on the back instead of underneath. My old one I grew up with was just like those though but had a tank on bottom instead of the bottle then when the generator needed replacing I converted it to a bottle type. I'm pretty sure that valve will work for mine too if it's got the little jet pressurized thing in the end of it.

Doesn't look much different than the little junky Walmart or academy ones but it is much bigger and way brighter.

Yeah it looks like the funky WM lights with a bigger pan. The valve looks like the ones on the little heaters that you screw on a propane bottle. He might have enlarged the orvis so it would put out more gas to make it brighter.
