    CEBB2CC6-A930-409F-853A-428C75CDAAA4.jpeg I came across this at a flea market today. Being new to the stove scene, I don’t really know anything about it. I’m having trouble finding anything on the net. Does anyone here have any info on this item. They want $15 for it. Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to CCS. The photo captures the name (no leads on that as you say) and the plan view but not a lot to establish what type of stove it is. Size?

    Maybe a clue is the pivoted top plate, to load solid fuel perhaps? Spindle and knob to control a damper/air flap?

    I did another search on this forum and finally came up with something posted by optipry I don’t know how to paste the link here as i am not real computer smart. Lol. It does have a fuel tank and pump so I’m guessing it doesn’t burn solid fuel. I don’t know how old it is or if it’s worth cleaning up and restoring. This is something new to me. I’m more familiar with stoves like the Coleman camp stoves as I have a couple of them and just picked up a Preway model 4822 that is just like new. I was pretty happy about that find.
