    Haven't done much to it but a wipe down with a damp rag but will get a good cleaning! Dated 1949. Had to give it a whirl after everything seemed to work as it should. Will do the NRV pip in the future. A nice unit!

    Very fine. It’s in great shape to respond well to whatever you’re about to invest in terms of elbow-grease.

    Thanks John. Elbow grease? Oh boy that sounds like work! lol
    Guy told me that the last time it was used was about 30 years ago camping with his Dad. It was their main camping stove. He kept it in good shape stored away someplace out of the elements that's for sure. Pump cup was even good but I did give it a few hours in Neatsfoot oil for good measure. He couldn't remember if the little black knobby thing on the front of the tank was ever there so that's missing as well as the little circular ID tag on the back top screw. Must of been apart at one time I guess? Even though it doesn't look like it but lot's of things can happen over the years so you never really do know what the story is do you?
