    Vintage gravity feed kerosene stove. Not sure what I'll do with it.
    I posted it some time ago while restoring, before and after.

    Thanks for looking...Roby DSCF2534.JPG DSCF2535.JPG

    Beautiful, well done.

    As for what to do with it, I recommend spam and eggs on one burner and tea water on the other.

    Is there a maker's mark on it? Maybe a sticker on the back?

    Obviously, I should have read the title of your post. :doh:

    I've got a similar one branded "Anchor", and manufactured by Lindemann & Hoverson of Milwaukee. These were commonly used in homestead cabins out here in the '50s and '60s before the area was built up and electrified, and propane stoves became the norm.

    I'm going to agree with @Marc as to what you should do with it. These are good user stoves for a cabin. They have a nice even flame. A bit slow to respond to adjustment, but that's a very minor defect.

    Nice job on restoration.

    Here is a flame shot, nice and blue. I was surprized of the heat! Of what I read these
    burners put out about 8500 btu's. Not very fast in response to flame control because of
    the wicks and non pressure of the fuel, but still plenty of control, just a bit slower.
    Takes a minute or so to shut off. Maybe sometime in the yard I'll cook a meal.

    Thanks for looking and comments....Roby
