need to ramp this up. I forgot and posted the first finds in last years thread, and I'l get that re-posted here shortly...

For today, yard sales per se were rained out, but I did bring a CL find home that will be a big project:

A 1987 4WD Toyota van. Its got a fair amount of battle damage but I'l give it a rough straightening, and hit is with truck liner or similar in the bottom rails, it will be used for hauling and camping/hunting and I won't care if it gets scratched... [wink]

Any faded rusted parts will get flat blacked, or maybe a dark charcoal. It needs a LOT of toning down on the silver...

The "roller skate" tires and wheels got to go though!

Thanks guys!

Hollis, It didn't seem to be throwing water as I drove home in the rain for near 40 miles.

So the game plan for this is:

  1. Aerostar rear springs, (done right, should get me about 2" lift)
  2. use the torsion bars to lift the front a bit
  3. maybe 28" tires max all around, plus the spare
  4. receiver hitch in the back
  5. Brush guard, and an extended bumper up front with a receiver for a small winch (Stored inside to reduce theft odds).
  6. Possibly look at putting in a real transfer case  for low range, and locking hubs.
  7. wheel the snot out of it...
As bad as the outside is,  other than missing the two mid row captains seats, the interior is in pretty fair shape and compared to most Ive seem posted near pristine!  (many have bee gutted and are steel boxes... some are missing the door liners panels entirely,  I'm missing the back hatch panel, but should be an easy fix...)

2019 catch up from the old thread:
I picked up two of these for $10 about three weeks ago.  both with plastic battle damage, but this one I fixed.  Epoxy and some reinforcement cloth hold the replacement delrin on where the tab was busted off.  I re-drilled it, and put it back together:



Roll up table setup.jpg  

The repair:

The second one I have since given similar repairs, to two of the hinge/plate mounts, and two  of the "Spikes" that socet into the table replaced with wood dowels, and one of the articulating arm slides re-attached, and its also operational again...

It's been slow due to many rainy weekends.   So I get a text this afternoon from a guy I bought a stove from over two years ago' saying he has a lantern and 2 more stoves if I'm interested. the Lantern is a pristine 200A from 1961. Original box, lit probably once...

We dicker on the lantern a bit and he convinces me to make the near 20 mile trip to see what else this estate clean-out has. Its not really a sale yet. this is "first pickers" as they are sorting out! [bounce] I was the second guy in! [rocker]

The lantern was a given and the small 1-1/2 car garage had a 3 car garage tacked onto the back! 2 Model T's in a corner and STACKS to stuff EVERYWHERE! (I would LOVE to have this shop... Needs cleaned out and finished, but...)

There is 2-3 generations of collecting stored here! The family has owned the place for almost 65 years!

Not everything is for sale and I wanted to only get things I wanted, I could have bought for resale and done well...So just a hint of what was there:

The lantern of course

200 1.jpg 




And an up-capped can of fuel (seal is intact):

CF 1.jpg 

CF 2.jpg 


Flying A oil and a lighter fluid can, Machinists jack, Powder measure for shotguns, (1 oz shot, 2-1/2 Drams powder), a Yale/Navy push lock, 50 cal brush, and a claw type hatchet head (not sure it its marked I need to de-rust it...)



FA Oil M jack PM Y lock Hatchet brush.jpg 


WWII M1 Ammo can, 

M1 Ammo can.jpg 


An EARLY Kenwood Tube Stereo receiver - Hopefully nothing is blown... (careful fire up for this one!)

Kenwood.jpg 


And something from my past - I'm 90% certain I had a pair of these toy guns when I was about 5. there is family a pic of me floating around, in hat, holsters, guns in both hands, I think even chaps, holding both pistols out.

D gun.jpg 

Oh yes, the lantern! - besides being in virtually pristine shape, is a 9- 1961 "Burg" !  the tank is bone dry, not even a HINT of fuel smell?  the cap gasket is toast,  the pump seems viable.

Picked up a couple of canvas tents Friday at an estate sale.

one is a pair of shelter halves (WWII style) with folding poles?  I cant recall seeing this style before, just the stacking socketed type.

The other is a Boy Scout "Overnighter"  from 1969.  fifty years young!

some assorted stakes as well - not sure if these were original to either of the tents:

the Shelter halves with poles:

Pup tent.jpg 


The Label on my Scout tent,

Lable-sm.jpg 


Too rainy to set it up, so pics off the internet:

Front.jpg  back.jpg 



It's supposed to be big enough tor two adults and tall enough to stand in (me maybe, but not 6 footers...)

The center pole for the scout tent, and some of the stakes - this pole stacks to 6 ft high, and nests for storage/transport!  I'd love to find about six  or eight of these, or even just a couple!  there are 8 of the wood stakes - not sure what those were stock for?

ES1 tent stakes-Poles.jpg 


The wire stakes needed some attention:  This is after, and all but two were like the bent example or worse!  Then I found 8 or 9 more in the bag and have more to straighten, but for quick push in stakes these are great.  for pounding on, not so much (I love my home brew nail spike stakes with welded washers for that...)


wire stakes.jpg 

I also picked up a chunk of canvas that when I opened it up at home found this:

Stretcher.jpg 


Its an Army stretcher!


and the last canvas piece was a Duffle bag, which I didn't look at closely  til I got it in the house. WELL marked!

Another Estate sale I picked up an old 3 drawer Kennedy top mostly full of "consumables" (lathe bits, boring bars, taps, drills etc) for $20.  its got the squared off corners in the top and a steel handle so probably late 40's early 50's  - it's also GREEN, not brown.

I pulled these out (the brush is from another recent buy) and added them to my GPA tools.

Well this AM was a surprise; it rained off an on all night; was still sprinkling off an on this AM but the Cul-de-sac that posted an 8 family "block" sale last night came through! EVERYONE had one or more popup canopies, going, and were enthusiastic despise the weather!


Only two Items, but both made me smile!

Last item first, a July of 1947 Coleman 242c single mantle lantern!

Needs the obligatory pump leather and cap gasket, but it has the ORIGINAL globe! Green Coleman and Pyrex on opposite sides. (VERY surprised to find intact glass, even rarer after 72 years of camping use!

242C.jpg 


The top vents are also usually beat to hell - ONE small chip on top and at the edge of the vent, and its either wear or some flat black paint on the edges? [dunno]   No rust so I'm going to attack it with SG first and see if that removes it. if not it's wear and possibly from a brim extension shade? again, [dunno]  Finding one of THOSE would be a red letter day!


I found this at the first house - Looks REAL promising doesn't it? [wtf]

BOX.jpg 


Opened it and saw 3 SK sockets and that was more promising, and lifted the tray and saw this:

BOX 2.jpg 


I see Bonny, and an Indestro ratchet, and what looks like MAC sockets? Can't be! But they were!


I cherry pick it out and the guy tells me he's selling the whole box, and asked me to make an offer (I hate making the initial offer...) "How about ten bucks?"

"Oh No! I was thinking five!"

"I'm good with that!" I hand him a 20, reload the box and he hands me $15 change! [bounce]

Inventoried:

The MAC Socket set is 3/8 drive SAE impact shorties, The Bony set is complete with a Mac, an SK a Lectroite, A no name that resembles Duro/Indestro bt not the right markings, Pliers are Williams, Indestro ratchet adn extension, Thorsen swivel, Blakhawk driver on the right, Bridgeport adn ParX on the left, Greatnech stubby and adjsutable...

The closest thing to being junk is the wire crimper/strippers the folding razor blade, (looks unused).and the box itself...

All for a fiver, ten total with the lantern! [pimpflash][rocker]


A VERY good (rainy) day!

So a report back on a find from a few weeks ago where I picked up that  nice Coleman 242 with the original globe from 1947, where unfortunately the tank was heavily rusted and just shaking the loose crud out a hole opened up in the bottom.

I had a brass fount from a Canadian mod 200 (1961) leftover from another project I went a different way on, and I Frankensteined the two together. the brass fount holds 4 more oz. of fuel, so add at least an hour to the run time.

a1 old and new.jpg 

You can see the hole and several more incipient rust holes forming...

I need to finish polishing the brass in a couple of spots, but My hands got tired...

It needed all the usual's - Cap gasket, pump cup, and the check valve cleaned

This is similar to the 24275 I built on the last western Coleman campout at Pinnacles, so 242-200, meet 24275!:  

A2 242-75 meet 242-200.jpg 


That was last night, tonight I cleaned the check valve and got it holding pressure and viola!  Let there be light!  And with  the original mantle!

Since this is a Frank I set the original 1947 globe aside and gave this a newer one...

Had to go pick up the lamp I got for a dollar, so decided to hit all the sales on the way. Pull up to the first sale and see two stoves, I've got too many already but always look. A 413D and a 425B. No legs on the 413, 425 is complete. Thinking I'll pass on both.
I asked about the legs for the 413D and the guy comes out with a stand. The stand is missing a piece and no legs for the stove so my offer is going to be pretty low when he says "a dollar". I ask how much fo the stand, he says "a buck for all three".

Yardsailing has been slow, especially for GPA/Camp stuff but things picked up today!

I DID get a Quicklite last weekend off CL for $20: 

: Holds pressure (had pressure when I cracked the cap!)

Definitely a project, but should fettle up:

[H1%20Quicklite]


Today, an Estate sale: 

RR Spike with tiny train - I'll put this with some of the mine track samples...; GPA related anyway -  Pump for lantern (Coleman?  need to loo it up, but it's likely to get used on the Quicklite I picked up last weekend.) , Old Glass knobs, and a polished stone that caught my eyek.

A1 Spike pump knobs stone.jpg 


Mini Flea and I got this SiggTourist (Sweden) nesting camp pot set for a SEVA123 (or clones) with the wind deflector and pot stand - I have just that last part and two of the stove, in my new camp box, so this will enable me to have two pots safely cooking/boiling, simultaneously! These sets go for bucks on Eprey... I paid 5! (i also got a bunch of free books from the guy) 

As Found:

B1 Sigg Tourist.jpg 

After Cleanup:

ST 123 up.jpg 

The new one needs a strap  I think I have one suitable for it...)

Side be side with my old ST that is made for the Coleman singles: (much taller)

ST both.jpg 


I also got a second nesting set with a pair of pots and a pot gripper which doesn't "go" with these but works nicely with the Sigg Tourist set! For $2 could not turn it down!

C1 Nestng set 2.jpg 

And the smaller ST will fit inside the larger pot so I can have a BIG pot for boiling water and whatnot (probably enough to heat water for a 1 gallon shower - boil half,  mix with he cold water and presto warm/hot shower!

Big pot with the Smaller ST in t!

No. 2.jpg 

I also got this Coleman Focus 5 3500/5000 BTU heater lit instantly and I like that  MUCH better than the fussy Catalytic heaters  !;ll use this when we have fire restrictions but its still cold...  I can connect it to a bulk tank also. (I have then from 1/2 G to the full 5 gallon tanks) I've bee watching for one of these for several years without luck until today!  It passed the test light up easily!

Timm,  My daughter thinks it is agate (but neither of us are experts)  I think I see what you are talking about - there is a blue star reflection off it it?  That may be a camera artifact?   

Rock.jpg 

Those are cool finds Timm!  interesting flight calculator!


Well I've discovered the pump has a leak and I thought it was a corrosion spot and wire wheeled it,  then had to follow what turned out to be a crack!  

So I know at these transient pressures I could lay electrical tape lengthwise, then wrap it with the same and have a serviceable pump,  but the soldering job we did on the cracked  hollow pump shaft up at Pinnacles to make it serviceable again attracts my attention. 

I might be able to clean it well as we did at Pinnacles , and then get sum solder to flow into the crack.  After we did that I "wiped" it with a wire brush and got a smooth outside surface.  No clue what the inside looked like though, and that is the trick!  if I get solder inside, that would tear up the pump leather pretty fast, not to mention the drag...

A 220J with a Pyrex USA made for /Coleman amber globe a buck!  without the amber, I wouldn't even asked "how much?"

A gravity type  ceramic water filter and the cloth napkins are also going into camping.

And the Eprey buy,  My Bday lantern - I kept avoiding the 2 burners 220/228's and finally scored this one.  In incredible condition overall; the vent and fount are chip free, there is mark from the bail on the back side and some scuffing but no real "rim rash...    I had no globe and the wrong ball nut and Rubing came through with a period correct globe and ball nut for me (thanks again Rubing!) 

All I have done to fettle it was replace the cap gasket, soak the pump leather, soak the inside of the fount with Evaporust, then rinse (a lot) and final rinse with Alcohol, then was the fount with Dawn.  It ran all night and more (10 + hours) last night!  I'm very happy with the results!  It would be nice to finds a 202 Pro as a B-day lantern, but this will do!

At some time I'll soak the frame in Evaporust, but that will be all for this one.

Outlaw, your shelter halves from March have the correct (early) WW2 folding poles.  Those wooden stakes posted later would also go with them - IIRC, 5 per shelter half.

You've been doing well this year!

So I need to wait (Impatiently) for it to be delivered, but I FINALLY got a small 2 burner stove for the "smaller" camp setup!  A Kampkook Model 3!  about 1922?  early model without a hinged lid and no wind screens, and used a separate pump (pump and wrench are present!)  It DOES  come with a folding aluminum screen.  

I've been wanting one of these or one this size, ever since seeing one at Pinnacles.

I tried to get a smaller stove mid 2017 (well before Pinnacles)  but the stove (while also a Thermos/AGM/KampKook 8427 ) was not smaller than the 425 (seller fibbed...)  I bought it anyway at a lower price.

Then a couple of months ago I thought I bid for a Model 3, but it was a 2222, about the same size as a 425...

Today I bid and got an actual Model 3!  8-1/2" X 14" foot print! (Smaller than my Laptop!  Just under $40 shipped, but 3/4 of that WAS shipping!

This brings my Kampkook "inventory" to:
Kampkook Model 2 (Much bigger for some reason...)
Kampkook Model 3
Kampkook Model 99 (three Burner)
and the Thermos/AGM/KampKook 8427

I'll probably bring  the 2  3 and 99 to the next gathering I make...

Better pics of the 3 after its received, but screen shots from Eprey:

Latest scores;  2 more stoves and a chair...

The stove and Chair were from Last Saturday:

I would have passed on the 426, but for $3...  

426C 1.jpg 

426C 2.jpg 

And the Coleman chair,  I got it with a bunch of other stuff for $10, including a kids fiberglass bow, (probably about 10 lbs...):

A5 ES Coleman chair and Bow.jpg 

The other stuff:

A5 ES Tape. CL 460, A6 oil Spout.jpg 


And this was from Eprey:  $10 and change plus near $30 for shipping:

I've been watching for a Model 3 KampKook since the Pinnacles Coleman camp out second weekend of Jan.  

The pics are deceptive how small this stove is!  8-1/2 X 14-1/2 X 3-1/2! closed up!  those tiles are 6"


1 as recieved.jpg 
It's rough on the paint, but generally very straight!,  only surface rust.really,  the only real physical damage is one burner foot has 1/2 broke off;  other than that its "consumables" like the hose,  tank cap O ring, (already replaced from stock) the pump leather may make it!  ir was whole a=t least,and almost making pressure!.  inside the tank seems very clean (dray, but few rattely things inside)  Its soaking in Evaporust already.

A CampKook #3, I am jealous.  I really want one of those.  Nice to see you have the tank wrench too. Congratulations on that one.

Thanks Marty,  Yeah I THINK all the bits are there, (wrench and pump were the only loose things?)  plus that aluminum wind screen!  that seems to have taken more abuse than the stove, but I'll have a go at cleaning that up and straightening the panels.This one is for the light load camp setup, so expect to see it next time we get together!  

Its less than an inch and a half wider that the wood camp box,  so I was SO close to having a nice "stack" for that!

Thanks Courtenay

I got some 1/8 hose for the pump yesterday and the leather soaked in Neetsfoot, and that came back!  I got some 7/32 that should fit better tonight

Pump.jpg 


The tank was soaked in Evaporust, and rinsed out with water (many many times - A couple of square inches of news print bits came out... ) then  alcohol, then dried and filled with fuel.  used a pin to knock the check valve ball in the cap loose and rinsed that with WD-40. (Out of carb cleaner)

Paper.jpg 

I'd replaced the Cap O ring last night.   With pressure the tank was squirting fuel so I got the stove and matches, primed the first burner with fuel from the tank (just aimed the generator jet in there...) mounted the tank and it fired right up!

Lit dim.jpg 

I over-opened the valve so you could see the flames better, but it roars along pretty good!  I'm a Happy Camper (pun intended)

Thanks, that's Otto. My previous pup Tex passed away the day after my birthday, was heartbroken to say the least. This new one is only about 5 months old now and already 60 lbs. He's gonna be a big boy.

A bit behind here;  (like nearly a month...)

Got some Camping related stuff, if not GAP directly - 


Closed cell foam sleeping pad

A8 pad.jpg 


Half gallon of fuel  hot pad/"mittens" for the camp gear, adn I converted the cedar shingle cap inot shims for stoves etc...

TOO BB shingles CF Hot Pads.jpg 
007Ceadar shims.jpg 

A 2 cup aluminum pot and a 4 cup copper pot - both going into camping, as well as the surgical scissors into the first aid kit
YS2 A T pot, sissors  ES2 C T pot caps.jpg 

A Pulaski AX/Adz head - Originally designed as a fire fighters too, (and still used fort hat)  thinking this one my get a slightly shorter handle, and go into camp gear.  I also got a Taiwan knock off of the Sigg Tourist,  this one is setup for the SEVA123, and clones.

Pulaski & Cookset.jpg 

TT Pulaski.jpg 

Cookset.jpg 


THsi one is dual purposr,  I got involved with a "drum circle" a year or so back adn found this adn may bring it adn a couple other smaller tribal drums to one of the coleman trips and see if we can get one going - I belive this one is called a "Dundun"  I love the deep sound this one makes!

Dundun sm.jpg 

djembe -old and new sm.jpg 

I got  this Knife to salvage the stag grip since it was rusted badly and the tip was busted off, but the thing I wanted the stag for was longer, SO I reground the tip somewhat funky, (but it how has a point) and "mostly)  de-rusted it and its looking much better.  Solingen steel and its ground thin, so a backup skinning knife when done.  (thinking about possibly grinding n a gut hook, or may not...)

York C BEFORE.jpg 

York knife AFTER L.jpg 

York knife AFTER R.jpg 

A woods (1944) army shovel  -this one is worn worse that any I have or have seern!  I'l oil up the handle sharpen it up and add it to the privy tools.  I recently got a Vietnam era folding pick/Shovel and that one will sty in the rig, "just in case" - possibly with the pulaski 

Woods 1.jpg 


Its almost 1-1/4" SHORTER than another one I have, and THAT one is worn a bit!

Pulaski is a great all-around cutting/digging tool. I learned to use one many years ago in my first season with the USFS, and carry one in the Van at all times.

True Temper was the USFS brand. Some used by the USFS were stamped USFS, some not.

One of mine (not this  one) is stamped USFS. - That's interesting that some were and  some weer not - I had assumed that any later ones would have been stamped USFS.  some of the earliest might not have been?
