The nice thing about that listing is the fuel can and instruction sheets. The stove looks new.

I accept gifts :lol: No way would I pay big bucks for a stove. I seem to use all my funds for experimenting supplies. :roll:

I guess it's all in how you look at it. I come from a family that collects things; antiques, Hummel and Royal Daulton figurines, glassware, Indian relics,etc. etc. In our early years, we also collected hummels and that kind of money was not out of the question. Since 911, the bottom has fell out of the collectible market, except for borde bombs :roll: , and people don't have the disposable income they use to have with the rising cost of living. My mother is at an age where she needs to liquidate many of her collectibles and is taking a beating trying to do so. It is definitely a buyers market in most cases unless you have a stockpile of borde bombs or other extremely rare desirable artifacts.

I was thinking of listing a lot of old stoves locally just to clean out some file cabinet drawers..but..maybe I'll wait for a while.. :roll: I'll have to list my Spoofer coil stove(search here) on ebay so Oops can finally own one.. :lol:

Lots of stainless steel drink bottles in the thrift stores @ 2 bucs. I want to see oops and steamjam make a borde out of one :D

I have 2 railroad batteries (rare) made of ceramic material. The guy that invented them worked for Edison. He at one point branched out on his own and started making them. Edison sued, the guy had to shut down production. So it goes out there in the real world.

Haha good idea. I think the only parts I'm going to salvage from this alcohol coil stove are the tube fittings anyways.. :)

Hiking Jim is on top of the vintage stove arena, giving many reviews for public consumption. Thanks for the link, Zelph ;)

Ah yes, HikinJims blog on the Borde Bomb :D Jim has a nice little collection of stoves and I always enjoy his research on them.
