    Nice one Ben. Soldering torch and stove combined.

    It needs a pot rest rigging up on the lines of the one in the illustration in a 1933 catalogue.

    This advertisement is from 1917, so the design goes back some way.

    @z1ulike , Ben, that's got to be the strangest looking stove I've ever seen! Cool, yes. But, strange, too. @presscall , John, many thanks for helping to "fill in the blanks" on this little guy. For some reason, when I read the words, "Tito Landi", I thought, for a second, that this thread was a bout a Spanish musician who played Congas!! :whistle: :whistle:
    Thanks to you both for the info on this little "pipe stove"!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    @Doc Mark Peter (@Lampenkueche) has a couple of ‘Pips’ and posted more details HERE. It has a mantle attachment to turn it into a light also, so a very versatile device, and an early date.

    @Pancholoco1911 , @presscall ,

    Hi, Guys,

    Many thanks for the additional information! It's amazing how many very interesting things in history are still out there, waiting to be found! The "Pip" is one of those things!! I enjoyed the links you both shared, and stand amazed by the ingenious minds that create such things, as Tito-Landi did! Thanks for sharing, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Here's another stove that can be turned into a light.
