    Long drive but worth it

    Everything was, at one time, wrapped in newspapers.

    From 1935![​IMG]

    Funnel, legs, pump and diffuser plates

    And it works

    Do you suppose this thing has been sitting around since the 30's?????

    Looks like a leather seal on the fill cap, methinks it leaks a bit, gonna work on that.

    @Majicwrench ,

    Keith, that's one outstanding stove, my friend!! And, if finding it with all it's goodies wasn't enough, having it all wrapped in period newspaper is the icing on that sweet "cake of a stove"!! YIPPEE!! That's gotta be one of the biggest "finds" of this year, for sure! VERY well done, and hearty congratulations, Good Sir!! :clap: :clap: :clap: :thumbup: :content: :D/ The blue flame pattern is quite lovely! Thanks for sharing it here, and again, very well done!! Have fun with it, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Very nice stove and then after a double take I knew why. Without calling the patent police I would say it has same case as my Okeefe & Merritt from the mid 1920's even have that same funnel with square star crimp! My burners are different , very much like Kampkook's happy face. Mine is in gallery measures 16x9x4-1/2 inches. Stay safe Hot SoCal

    @Daryl it sure looks like same case, same legs etc.

    I don't have a wrench.....WAIT I still have some things wrapped in 85 yo newspaper, there is hope!
    I wonder if mine came with a wrench, not a whole lot to "wrench" on.

    Mine has a nut on fuel cap and wrench fits fuel valve nut also. Might have been a common tin funnel for the time, Stay safe
