I have worked on several lanterns and thought it would be fun to try a stove.  I found this beauty on Craigslist for $40.  It came with 2 propane lanterns, a 275a, and a custom chuck box that holds the stove.  Overall this thing was in great shape, just years of grease.  I accidentally spilled carb cleaner on the tank so i repainted that.  I also could not get the grease off the burner tubes so i used a scotch bright pad on my pneumatic die grinder to clean them up and repainted with rustoleum 2000 deg paint.  So how did i do on my first stove?

Stovie and Damn proud of it

how long does one have to be dead before it’s considered archeology  and not grave robbery?

Wow, nice work!  Looks to be running very well.  Stoves can be a lot of work so after a few more, let us know if you a still doing it just for fun!  😁
Very nice first stove, Bill, that looks great! Nice big three burner, too.

It's clean, green, burning mean!  Nice job.
Wow nice job! I like the earlier model stoves. I have a 69 426D that I restored and as you know the work that goes into it is labor intensive. Your stove looks awesome and burning nice.  
Looking for Bday lanterns, 10/83, 11/84 and 10/2011.

You did great.  Very nice clean-up.  That stove is ready for decades more of faithful service.

You couldn't have picked a better model for your first.  Well done.
That looks GREAT!  Pat yourself on the back for that one.


Flammable liquids, open flame, what could go wrong?

I've missed you!  But I'm reloading.

Welcome to  the fold. Great first stove. Now so the same thing to a matching year lantern and give the grandkids something some camping memories. Also nice looking 1968 Chevy. Had a "69" C-10.

Thanks for the kind words everyone.   It was definitely harder work than any of the lanterns i have worked on, but i certainly enjoyed it.  Hard to beat that feeling you get the first time you fire it up.  
Nice job!  looks Great!
