Old stoves from past years.

Postby hikerduane » Mon Nov 05, 2012 9:58 pm

Finally, a few pics of my stove collection. Excuse the unprofessional shots, the setting is mostly natural. I'll add to it later. Thanks all for offers over the years in trying to help me get this photo thing down.
A couple of MSR's first stove model, the model 9. Notice the scalloped bell. I'm still looking for a white pump.

MSR model MF, G, GK, some of my blue stoves. Notice the flat generator over the burner on the MF and the lack of generator going over the G, then back again to the generator over the burner on the GK. Also notice the different catch arms on the end of the fuel line.

Bernie Dawg silent cap equipped X-GK

Another Bernie Dawg silent cap, a Dragontamer, on a MSR Dragonfly. Runs very quiet and smoothly. If you could get the DragonFly and add one of these caps, you'd have a great stove.

A rare Optimus 11 Explorer, complete. I got this pretty cheap, so not only was I lucky to have it offered to me, I got to make an offer. Jets for all the fuels, air restrictor when running the alcohol jet, tool, instructions, storage bag. Notice it has the old silent cap that was used on 'brassie" stoves that burned kerosene, the cap transitioned to this, then what is now the Nova. If you pick up an old Nova or similar, get one with the CEJN fittings.

Piece of cake.

Optimus embossed 8, one of four 8/8R's I have. Chrome (nickel) tank.
Alaska stoves etc 223_opt.jpg
Suitcase stoves by Optimus. A 22 which uses kerosene and a blue 22B which runs on Coleman type fuel.
Alaska stoves etc 204_opt.jpg
A Tilley heater, R1A, works best in a garage etc., the outdoors affects the kerosenes vaporization, really reflects the heat in the garage. Shown also is two soup cans screwed together, when you prime this, the cans (a poor replacement for the original part) holds the heat around the vaporizer so it heats up enough to vaporize the kerosene. If the fuel is not vaporized, it really acts up. Takes a couple minutes to get it hot enough. If you look close, I had made for me, a clip that is sitting on the tank that holds priming fuel (alcohol) which heats up the vaporizer that the cans fit over during the start up process.

A Enders 9061 on the left, uses Coleman fuel, has a silent burner, a Optimus military 111 with a roarer burner, uses white gas or kerosene, behind with the reddish label on the tank is a Coleman 530, white gas stove.
Alaska stoves etc 188_opt.jpg
A Primus 41 from the 50's I believe. I took this on a winter snow trip, it was so heavy, I forgot I had drained the kerosene out the week before so when I fired it up, it only ran a minute or so. One of my stoves that I think is very cool, the windscreen folds out and hooks on a nail/rivet type projection to hold it open. Way cool! Love that fat fuel tank too!

How old are these stoves? One was mentioned to be form the 50's, I assume they are all from the 50-60's.

This post is so freaking awesome....and for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, finally get to see these vintage stoves you've been talking about for YEARS. Second, and almost as important - halleluiah! only took you the better half of 10 years on HST, which included countless irritating emails and PMs from me trying to walk you through it, to finally figure out how to post your photos..haha!! Yes! :thumbsup:

I love this thread and echo rlown's request. Good recommendation on the Nova btw. I have the old one with the cejn connection and it is far superior to the newer piece of junk.
