A friend brought this by last night:

[48050878086_5da7a6bd06_b]

It's mostly there, except the burner:

[48050917858_636c0233f7_b]

Does anyone have a picture of the burner? My buddy literally dug this up in his barn, and it's likely the burner will be there too. A picture of the appropriate pump would be nice, too.

Any info on this would be appreciated--age, etc.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

I have a newer one with the pump built into the handle.  Not sure if the burner would be the same.

I'm hoping my buddy can find the burner! It would be easier if he knew what it looks like.

I found a few pictures of complete The Diamond Irons on the 'webby, but nose showing one disassembled.

That burner looks suspiciously like an Evenheat burner.  I recently discovered that the Evenheat pump assembly is practically the same as the pump in handle Akron.  I wonder....

That's interesting because the upper assembly does not line up well with the lower iron. I can only get one screw into it. Never thought it could be the wrong burner.
Take that with a grain of salt, Timm

Mine doesn't seem to want to line up with the base, either, and it dosen't even have a burner.

Here's a pic of mine. Been wanting to get to this project. Thanks Timm, and I hope this helps.

If it has a flame, I like it.
While it is certainly nice to find what you collect, in reality you must collect what you find.

Akron iron.jpg 
I've had this Akron Diamond for about 3 years and never done anything with it, but I took it apart to check out the burner for you.  That, and I'm becoming more curious about the similarities between it and the Evenheat gas irons.  They are/were both based in Ohio and there seems to be some lineage.  The patent date is 1936, and the original paperwork I got with it is dated 1937.  Yours is earlier I would guess since it uses an external pump.

Here it is mostly apart.
Burner comparison.jpg
The burners are quite similar.  The Evenheat doesn't have the generator heater on the side, but the bend in the tube brings it closer to the generator and the slots wrap a little farther around the side facing the generator to keep it hot.
It fits.jpg 
It fits just fine.  The mix chamber casting seems to be identical to an EH as well.  The pump assemblies are identical, and the EH cup, pump seal and cork check (pip) work in it.  I sent some to salukispeed to use with his Akron.  I have a Evenheat out in the garage.  If anyone is interested in further comparisons, let me know.
