    ...but is the Gaz stove better than the Coleman used for parts?

    I just got a free Gaz stove thrown in with another "you have to take the whole lot" Craigslist purchase. Was planning on giving it away as a bit heavy, and I don't see the advantage over my other stoves.

    Do Gaz stoves have a place, or just an obsolete product?

    Thx for any insight.

    That 'conversion' was perhaps first 'discovered' and posted in the forums here by someone a few years ago. They clearly described how they did it, showed pics, etc. Here's the thread: https://classiccampstoves.com/threa...eeded-again-problem-solved.35119/#post-361490
    Then that person started selling the 'conversion kits' on ebay for $50, and shockingly, they sell at that price (many are showing up in the eBay "sold" listings). I guess if people want to spend that kind of $$ on it, that's up to them. Hooray for capitalism, and more power to the seller if they can get that kind of $ for a few minutes worth of work.
    As noted in the video, you can buy the entire Coleman propane stove at places like Walmart for well under $20 and spend the <5 minutes to do the "conversion" yourself.
    The video in the initial post in this thread gets posted in the ebay listing from a seller who tries to point out that you don't need to spend the $50 to buy the same kit you can buy at a store for <$20.
