    Was given this last Spring with some other stoves, the guy got it for the metal pans. Looked unfired. Top and rest of the frame were rusty, so repainted those areas. Two parts tubes with parts.

    Thank you Ed. Needs the spindle tips broke in or something, the one leaks just a little, had them both out last summer.

    A very nice WWII veteran, and I agree that it looks unused. I've tried cooking on mine (toasted spam sandwiches) but the flame is really too hot to do any real cooking (they turned out rather charred). It's very efficient at it's designed purpose: heating water quickly to sterilize medical equipment. It would be great at heating water for tea and pour over coffee or coffee presses.

    So, you are in market for a case then, or happy with it as is? I need a windscreen for mine. I believe mine is a ‘45 Coleman.

    Better condition than mine. Does it have the folding wind screen?
    I like the way the dished end acts as a funnel. The inlet extends inside creating an air pocket for expansion much like on the Optimus 99 & 8R.

    Nice stove and piece of history.
