Christmas is going to be here before you know it and I give my brother in-laws choices this year. They could either have a short vent 200A or a 502 stove. I've got 4 200As ready but I have 4 502s waiting to be rebuilt. I'm curious as to others opinions on rebuilding one at a time or as a group of 4 all at the same time? Other than slight date variances they are all identical. They will get fully disassembled and everything cleaned and polished just like the lanterns did so all they have to do is pump and light. Thoughts?

As long as they're identical, go for it. Mixing different GPAs in a fettle leads to great confusion!

Witness some of the likely unintentional "franks" we find--mixed parts on lanterns and stoves.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Toby its Christmas, you got four of each, how many sisters ya got? My thought, give one of each a 200A AND a 502.  You can do this! Problem might occur if you got five or more married sisters. If you got five or more married sisters I will help you out, at no cost to you, coming to a campground near you in September.

😁 thanks Bob, what they don't know is that they are going to get one of each.. Just not at Christmas.. Whatever they don't choose for Christmas, they will get for their birthday... I'm not good at thinking of gifts for anyone else... But I can give them gifts that interest me ðŸ˜‚

Be sure and stop in and take the tour when your down my way.

If my workbench is cluttered, I do one at a time.  If the workbench happens to be pretty clean, I do several simultaneously.  Right now, I have 3 200As disassembled.

I have done restorations singularly and in groups but the most important part is to clean up the burner cages first in order to get the worst part out of the way first.

I agree, definitely the longest part.
