    Hello,
    I am thinking it may be a Turner 2 burner. Is there a man on a trapeez on the pump rod end ? It should be stamped into the brass.

    Hello and Welcome!!

    Well that looks a lot like a AGM Kampkook

    AGM stands for American Gas Machine.

    I never seen one like yours though. The design of pump and the model number says Turner Brass Works of Illinois to me. Link

    I am sure someone will be of more help than I

    Cheers,
    Jeff

    Yeah,

    It has that KampKook look to it. It also has the X-140 look to it as well, which is related to the Kampkook and this stove, like Jeff wrote. The pump base looks like the X-140 pump base, if anything, but the X-140 has a different config.

    This stove is pretty awesome to me. I REALLY like the controls for each burner, that is sweet!!!

    I have one. It's missing one of the gennies. My label badge is different, but it seems to be the same stove. I've got pics in the camera but no time to post at the moment as I have to make my postal deadline this afternoon. Check back this evening (Pacific Daylight Time) and I'll hopefully have posted the pics.

    As to dating..... and manufacturer..... I believe it's a bit of a mystery, though the KampKook and Turner references already mentioned are good bets. Who made it didn't really concern me enough not to buy it on eBay if that's your worry, indycmpr. ;) If you plan to keep and restore it, it should be a cracking stove. I hope to get mine done up later this summer.

    Best,
    Gary

    Hi again

    Here are the photos of mine. A couple of points. The gennies (generators, aka vaporization chambers) physically thread onto the manifolds. To dismantle the stove for carrying or storage it's necessary to unthread the gennies from the manifolds, slide both manifolds across the bottom of the case to the back (?) of the case, then put the tank in front of the case. Sorry the photos don't show that. :roll: :oops: I've not found any markings on my stove beyond the metal tag in the photos. Ideas? :-k

    HI All,

    From a past post , these stoves were determined , well the consensus was, that these are Truner Brass Works stoves made for the military or non-civilian use. The design is very much like that single burner listed on another stove site.

    Here are my two :

    One marked "X-141" the other "G 2" Both identical in every way except the label.

    BTW the orange washer was removed and replaced with a nitrile washer ;)

    1276256109-tbw_pump_nrv_removed_from_tank.jpg

    I had some flame shots , but can't seem to locate them right now, they both work fine and they are quite nice runners when fettled to operating condition.

    You have the true "dual-control" like Gary's ( except Gary's does not have the Wagon -wheel knobs it appears) , with the nice "wagon-wheel" knobs. Reminds me of the earliest Prentis-Waber stove knobs. Not sure AGM was involved in this stove although.

    I really like the "dual-control " set-up :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :clap:. I would equate it to : my 2b's were for the non-coms and your 2b dual-control was for commissioned officers LOLOL.
    The dual control is quite a luxury and I want
    one bad :) :mrgreen:

    Hope this helps a little

    Tom

    P.S. Age is pre-WWII, best I can find

    Thanks for the helpful pics and info, especially gary and tom for taking time to help. I have this stove, a 90's duel fuel, and an old coleman 425c. The old lady asks why do I need 3? She has no idea that I'm hooked w/ more stoves to come!LOL!

    She: "How many stoves do you need?"

    He: "Just one more."

    Repeat as needed.

    :lol:

    Post some pics when you get it running, indyc. :thumbup: For now, I'm going with the Turner Brass Works for the manufacturer. :mrgreen:

    After awhile she WILL stop asking about the stoves...

    Now the cooksets and lanterns might be a tougher sell... ;) :lol: :lol:

    I've now got my lady picking up my fettled stoves and showing them to our visitors and explaining to them how they work. She is as hooked as I am.
