    I agree that the stove in the advert drawing looks like a No. 8.
    A year later, 1932, Prentiss Wabers changed the position of the fuel tanks from the side to the front of the stove.

    I didn't have a clue as to the make of the stove. As I said, it was the style of the pump that caught my eye.

    A lot of people may not know this but in 1938 Prentiss Waber took control of AGM.

    Soaked the leather for a bit, brushed the connection. Lighting a nearly 100 year old stove the first time was a bit intimidating, but it runs amazingly. After she warmed up and cleared her throat it had 2 blue burners roaring.

    Great photos; love the steak. And the Johnny's Seasoning Salt, the best stuff ever. Always on my table!

    This add mentions “improvements” to the Model 3 for 1924,,, This places my #3 1924 or later...
