As the header says---Vintage backpacking stoves

Postby Ridgerunner » Sun Nov 25, 2007 5:53 pm

Zelph, you asked for it and I will take the first step in hopes of getting oops to display his museum.
I am foregoing a night of bowhunting to put this together. Saw 6 this morning ;) These photos did not go as planned. First I rounded up as many stoves as I could find but I know there are more in the nooks and crannys. Set them on the stoop of my storage building and went for the camera. Spent an hour looking for the camera(Oldtimers :x ) Ended up grabbing the busted hp camera and duct taped it back together. (It is one of 4 that my 19 yr old daughter has busted but is still useable) In the mean time, it started raining :twisted: Planned on setting all the stoves up but with the steady drizzle, decided to just snap a few pics and get them back under roof.

Picked up the large one burner in the back right corner of the first two pics at a flea market---can't find any markings on it.
Definitely not a backpacking stove but a one burner.

One of my favorites. Took me awhile to get one on ebay as there was a collecter that was not going to be beat. He told me he liked cleaning them up and giving to family and friends as gifts. "What's a poor feller to do". He finally missed a couple--must have been on vacation :lol: I picked one up last year at a church sale for $3.00. My best deal ever. It had the pot, handle, instructions, AND the midi pump :o Boy, was I a happy camper. :lol: That particular church always has some camping equipment.

Awesome collection!!!!

Hopefully you'll follow the format of the guy that outbid you many time. Clean them up and send some to family first and then to your bplite friends :D

I would imagine you have more stoves in your museum than Oops has. Oops what do you think? Is Ridgerunner the one that has always out bid you on many of the auctions. :P

The tall one in the back on the right looks like a plumbers stove. Used to melt lead in an iron pot. Molten lead transfered by means of a small laddle to joints around iron pipe(hokum applied in the joint prior to pouring the lead. Iron pipe was once used for vent pipe in home sewer systems.

What is the one that looks like a bottle, in the back?

Interesting on the plumbers stove. It actually has an old round red on/off handle like you would find on the outdoor water faucet. Your probably right. $5 at a flea market---took the plunge.

The two bottles in the back, one on each side, are old Geman fuel bottles.

If our oops56 is the same as ebay oops62, he owns a museum of stoves and he usually outbids me. I had to resort to sniper bidding to keep the total price down. Have not bought any ebay stoves in quite some time as the cost of living has gone up and my wages have gone down! :x but I am truely blessed to have my health, family, and good friends.

Over 700 feedbacks ----you must have a 3 car garage converted into a muesem like my grandpappy did with Indian artifacts. Come on oops-----share some pics of your collection :)
Do you go to the vintage stove conventions? Inquiring minds want to know! :?:
