Good Morning, All, I am posting this on behalf of my good friend, Joe Pagan, who sent me the photos and his description of this neat old, and I think somewhat rare, PW stove! I'll post the note from Joe, then the photos. If you have any questions about this, I'm sure he would be very happy to answer them, as always. Thanks, Joe, for sharing this old PW with us! From here on, is what Joe sent me: Prentiss Wabers Model 405 stove made at least 1936. While it is not shown in the main PW '36 catalogue, I have a supplemental brochure that came with the catalogue that shows this stove only. It was a new model introduced during the production year. What is unusual about this stove is that PW painted it black and not the usual green. In fact, 1921 was the last time PW painted their stoves black. This stove also has no wind wings and while PW continued to make the burner manifold assembly mounted with the fuel tank as one unit, as was their practice for the previous years since 1925, PW designed this so the burner assembly slides into the stove from a large opening on the right side of the stove body, along a guide, which is on the inside bottom of the stove with the burner assembly having a counterpart guide that overlaps the stove guide and the fuel tank goes underneath the stove body itself. Removal of the generator requires one to loosen a square nut placed underneath the main burner, then one slides the burner assembly back about 1/2". Then one can turn the generator/fuel valve away at an angle so as to permit removal of the burner assembly. Re-assembly is the reverse. The fuel valve itself is screwed on to a pipe nipple, which extends up from the tank about 3 inches or so. As you can imagine, the fuel pickup tube is rather long. Why Prentiss Wabers designed it this way is unknown. But when one looks at the stove itself, it appears that this stove was designed to be an entry level model for the budget minded camper or for those who want a basic stove for picnics. Nothing fancy about it like its stablemates. While I knew this stove model existed, this is the first one I have ever seen or come across. Of course, there may be others out there but they have yet to surface. I know the 400 series of stoves do come up on eBay(Models 401, 408, 409 & 412) but this model would appear to be one vary rare later model stove. Paint is original to the stove. No re-painting has been done. Just a cleaning and polish of the stove body & fuel tank paint with the burner assembly and wire grate undergoing a thorough cleaning. Photos: On behalf of Joe, many thanks for looking at this old Prentiss Waber #405!
