    I found this stove at an antique mall years ago. This stove is in excellent shape but missing all of the canisters, utensils, coffee pot, etc. It came with instructions and stowing information. I wish all of my finds were as clean as this one is!

    Great find, @seavandal!

    Are you going to try to replace the missing cookware?

    Cheers

    Wonders never cease. I had never heard of these. A site search shows just a couple of mentions over the years.

    Very impressive.

    This stove needs the cookware guts. I have several pieces that are period cookware but I lack some of the original items that these had. I found a unit on ebay that sold which had some of the correct items. Here's a picture of the set:

    I need that canister rack! I have lots of Melmac, Bakelite, pans, etc. to stock the stove that will appear to be original but the canisters and rack are king! Chris

    Seavandal, konabill & hazet, my thanks for your contributing details for us, it's very interesting and my "something new" today.

    WELCOME konabill !!!
    When you say "That's a picture of my Flinson canisters." If you don't mind (ebay ad aside), I'd like to know IF you have a nearly complete Flinson to refer to?... if so we might hope to learn more from you here (for one, the diameter and height of 4 tins?).

    Our community may be helpful to you as well:
    Images of any "original" Flinson cookware will certainly be welcome AND
    re: coffee pot many of us happen to have old US camping coffee pots.
    If a better description of coffe pot is learned here: approx. size, approx. year range and good idea of what the coffee pot w/a Flinson looked like. Then an exact or very close example may also reveal itself here. fwiw I recall searching for "ceratin camp coffee pots" in past and it was not easy YET over last 15+ years, I now have "a few".
    thx omc

    TMI Flinson is big kit yet it's based on small 425 pattern (vs bigger 413), hmmm.

    Flinson canisters measure 4.25" x 6"
    Wire basket holds 4 canisters or 3 canisters and the coffee pot when packed. Flatware for 4 skillet and pan are very lightweight.
    Began cleaning the burners and fuel tank. Ready to go within the next 2 weeks.
