    Hi,

    I have recently acquired an AGM KabinKook Model 1706 double burner stove. This stove is unusual due to each burner has it's own generator so there is no parasite burner to decrease the output.
    I haven't been able to find much information about this stove, but I did find there was an ad about this stove in a 1947 PM mag and also in a brochure form 1949 and there is some information on the tgmarsh site. I'm not sure but I believe this stove was made for only 2 years, but again I'm not sure.

    The stove is in pretty good shape for her age. This stove is quite heavy. The fuel tank/fount must hold about 2 gallons.
    I did use some Acetone to rinse out the fuel tank/fount. The stove did fire up and I did the tea test with the twins. Yep they were singing a duet and they sounded pretty good.
    I ran the stove for about 45 minutes and a lot of the yellow started disappearing and the flames turned a pretty blue with some yellow.
    The stove is very controllable from simmer to mid range and full.
    I don't think this stove has been run in years. I believe I will need to remove the generators for heating and quenching to remove all of the built up carbon and while I'm at it I will be removing the valves and pickup tubes because I believe the tubes are partially plugged with years of dried up fuel. The fuel tank/fount is all steel so no stress cracks to worry about.
    Enjoy.

    Whoa! that's quite something Norman.

    I like your terminology "parasitic burner". My 2-burner Coleman suitcase stove performs fine but there is of course nothing to be had at the left-hand burner unless the right-hand burner with the generator feed is fired up first.

    Lovely stove and fine heat-saver kettles too.

    Norman, I can say where all of the fog is coming from in the Puget sound area right now. :doh: Your tea tests are causing the pilots to fly IFR. :lol: Nice work on getting that stove going and perhaps try a bacon test next! :thumbup: :thumbup: :clap: :clap:

    Drop a couple of bagels on the grill and I'll bet they'd toast up nicely over those burners. These burners were definitely made for cooking as opposed to just boiling water.
