A co worker knows I like old rusty things. So he brought this in for me.
A Coleman M-1950, made in 1951. I’m not sure if this was a military issued stove. But I know a lot of them were.
Now I don’t get to carried away when I rebuild stuff. I like to say I don’t restore. I just preserve.
This is how I got it.

So this stove is 68 years old. The seals were nearly rock hard. Here is a shot of me picking out one of the pump seals.
Image
Fortunately the whole thing came apart very easily. I actually don’t think it had ever been used.
Image
I was able to get a new seal kit for $5.00 from oldcolemanparts.com. Actually I got two kits because there is storage in the pump tube for replacement parts. In the photo the seals above the tooth pick are the original spare seals.

Pump assy where spares will go.
Image
Also a little holder for a spare atomizer. The original one going back in its spot.
Image
Image
Now it’s back together. Will it blow up?! ........The pre heat
Image
Success! Had to go down into my basement so you could see the flame.

How can I help you, and/or make you smile, today?

The problem with being on social media, is that you know too many people that you don't know.

Joy is not a feeling. It is a strength. Some people are stupid, that's all there is to it. (And sometimes that stupid person is me/you.) Sometimes you just have to let stupid people be stupid. Don't let stupid steal your joy.

Holding onto unforgiveness and resentment is like drinking poison and expecting that other person to die. Anger will eat you up.

Well done! I love to see old things brought back to working condition without being "restored". :bow:

I remember the Coleman lantern that Dad had when I was a kid. The kind with the silk mantles. That thing could put out some light!

A rust brother! :thumbsup2: My children roll their eyes when I talk disparagingly about things being too new or too shiny.
A couple of my sons got into a conversation just to harass me (a fairly common occurrence) about where they should stash something that they'd bought as a gift for me... "Maybe under the big maple so the heavy layer of leaves will hold the moisture in and it'll rust faster." :cussing:
