The latest Alcohol Stove completed and added to my collection. This one is a "Manning and Bowman" "Alcolite" Stove, manufactured in Meriden, Connecticut, U.S.A., in the early 1900's. It was uncovered, at a large Flea Market, in Brimfield, Massachusetts, U.S.A. Nice working example, (boil time of 2 cups of water, 5 mins, 23 seconds!) with a removable Cast Iron Grate and a built in "Primer", that when pumped repeatedly, fills the Pre-heat Cup". It took some fettlilng, to bring the Primer back to life, but it's just an amazing testament to the antique engineering and design, that a spring, over 100+ years old can be brought back to working order, with some penetrating oil and some gentle persuasion! Hats off to our engineering Forefathers! Please enjoy the pics!
