My brother gave me a Coleman Focus 5 propane heater that he picked up cheap somewhere. Electronic ignition, even. A test burn produced a steady blue ball of flame at the element. Yep, mud dauber crap in the tube leading to the burner. She burns fine now. I'm not a big propane fan, but the Focus 5's are good portable heaters.

Hi Jim, I'm a fan of the focus 5 too. I just found a focus 3 at a junk shop a week or so ago. Tiny little thing with instant light as well. We use the focus 5 to cozy up the bathroom for showers in the winter. Lots of uses for these sturdy little heaters.

Yup, mud daubers like our stuff.  I've found them every where.

I picked up a Focus 5 last year. I like it WAY better that any other Heater I've tried.  simple and painless and instant starting...

I'm going to add a hole for hose access for a bulk tank, and a way to add some weight so its not top heavy for that use, but other than its high fuel consumption for the little bottles, I like it.

But what I'd really like to find is a 519 White gas powered heater.

Neighbor had given me an old honda generator and literally every available space inside was packed full of dauber nests. Knocked about 30 lbs of nests out of it.

That amount is amazing. It's also surprising how just a small amount of dirt or those thick spider webs can affect the operation of a lantern or stove.

So Ironically,  I spotted another Focus 5 on FBM, (I wasn't even looking, it just popped up at the top of the page?) and it was in the town next to my sister.  I called her and they picked it up for me, and will drop it by on the way to visit our mother next Sat.   So that makes 2 I've gotten for ten each!

Its still not a Coleman 519, but in the meantime...
