    I'd be turning the bottle the other way but other than that it's a working stove not there for show. What is in the tin??

    Spruce sap and Animal fat?...ok, I'll bite.

    My first stove was a 425F just like that. I wore out the valve and generator assembly (this was before I knew how to fix them), I did the same thing. I went out and bought that Primus propane adapter and viola!, instant fix. That brought back a few good memories, thanks!

    Spruce salve is long lasting and is said to have all the healing properties of the raw sap but is easier to apply.
    Spruce salve is made by mixing animal fat or vaseline with equal amounts spruce sap in warm water when it is all liquid of even consistency it can be poured in a bottle, cooled and used when needed.

    That's not blasphemy, it's ingenuity. Any working stove is a good stove. Especially if it's cooking bacon.
