    1920'ish...National Stamping & Electric (Nulite) Handy Camp Stove 2. A recent pick up in solid looking shape. Someone spray painted it silver at some point in it's life and maybe that helped preserve it. I'd like to say I did all sorts of hocus pocus to get it up and running, but it was missing nothing and everything that was supposed to turn did, so all that was needed was a new fuel cap gasket to replace the old hard brittle one. Requires a separate hand pump so pumped it up and did a dunk test and all looked good to go. Not really sure how to light it, fueled and pumped up I could see that when the main fuel valve was opened fuel flow is also controlled by the small "L" lever. Hard to see but fuel sprayed into an area under the burner. That had to be how it was preheated so struck the match and watched the preheat burn down and when almost out opened the fuel valve and away it went. Flame burned green for a bit as years of oxidation burned off. It quickly settled down and burns quite nicely and even made a nice cup of coffee. :)
