    That looks great! Nicely done restoration. Now all we need a flame shot.

    Yes flame shots please. I'm a big fan of Prentiss Wabers stoves, it drives me crazy seeing the low prices on US ebay! I have imported two so far but after postage, import tax etc they become less of a bargain.

    Well attempting to light this stove, I'll admit this is my oldest and I don't know procedure as much as I would like to know, any ideas. Has a preheat cup

    Its difficult to see if there's a preheat cup, if not I'd find a way to preheat the vapouriser. I use a torch meant for use in the kitchen.

    @dotman500 it doesn't need preheat. Open the red valve on tank abouit 1/2 turn (this lets tank air in to the system) and open valve on generator till you hear fuel spitting, hold flame at burner, should take off. After 30 seconds of so, slowly close the valve on tank.
    I have the same stove without the fancy grate.
