    Hi Guys I have been fettling this Rogers-Akron M1950 (Coleman) stove dated 1952 I got it on the "bay" for a great price. I got in contact with Mike at Old Coleman parts (great service by the way) and got all the bits I needed to get her going. I fired her up this afternoon 4minutes 20 seconds to boil 750mils not bad in my book. Of course I gave it hot water dunk test under pressure before I put a flame to it.
    Enjoy, Peter.

    I do have a soft spot for these stoves, I have a Rogers 1966 and a boxed unfired 1985 unit. A well thought out bit of equipment.

    Okay, so is it just me or has this happened to anyone else, filling the tank and forgetting to remove not only the pump tube but also the pump chamber as well..... ](*,)
