Hi Eric,
Over 120 now, I was trying to stop at 110, but there are so many neat, old stoves. Waiting for a Radius 19, lipstick burner stove from Sweden now. Looks un-used. Expanded my Optimus 8/8R collection, found a few either not used or nice shape ones. I have to recount them, they may be related to rabbits.
Best regards to the family. No JMT trip this year, headed to Glacier.

Thank you, will have to get a couple of the old 96's out, fired up most of my stoves the last couple months. Have 30 of the Primus 96's dating back as early as 1913 per the date code on them.

Nice collection, some really unique pieces you have.

I thought of your post when I came across a (not all that old in the grand scheme of things) Prentiss Waber M-1942-MOD, 1945 MFG stove that I found in my Dad's things I was sorting through after he passed recently. I remember him using it a few times when we were out camping with him near Yosemite a few years ago. I have to go back up to his place and do some digging, he apparently had a couple of other older stoves tucked away somewhere.
