    Found another Kampkook Model WCS 11 today. Most everything is the same on the “new” one as on the my first one that I gave $3 for. The pump knob is different on the new one, but everything seems to work freely. There is an example of an 11A on the Terry Marsh site I’ve included in the photos, I can only assume that the model 11 predates the model 11A, so maybe the model 11 dates to around 1950...

    Interesting old stoves,,, seems odd to find two of the same model at yard sales within a few miles of each other.

    Have you lit them?? Nice thing about those, both burners are about the same, unlike Coleman.

    I lit the first almost immediately after bringing it home,,, it lit straight away, no issues.

    They are the directions for lighting and operating the stove. I thought they were neat since they’ve been on there so long, so I’ve left it alone.

    The lady I bought it from was 70-ish, she said her father wrote the directions and taped them on the tank before he tottered off...
