IMG_9755[1].jpg Had to drive a couple hours to pick this up, I think it was worth it.
IMG_9756[1].jpg  Newspaper are holding (were holding) the small parts, and..
IMG_9758[1].jpg  May 22, 1935! There was also a paper from Portland OR dated July, so that was about the time this moved to the Spokane WA area.
IMG_9757[1].jpg  The funnel, legs, pump and diffuser platers
IMG_9759[1].jpg  No generator as we think of them,  the fuel flows thru the burner (pipe in lower right is supplying fuel) and heats up. Tray beneath is for preheating. Both burners the same. Needs a pretty fair preheat.IMG_9760[1].jpg  Cap looks like it has a leather sealing washer, it leaks a bit.
IMG_9780[1].jpg  It works!! Pump cup was plenty oily, but needed spread a bit, other than that, just add fuel. 

 Suppose this thing has been sitting since the late 30's?? Did the owner end up in the war and never returned??

I'm gonna be gentle with the newspapers and read some 85 year old comics....

Oh, and thoughts/advice on spot treating the rust areas would be appreciated.

Cooking pictures coming soon.

What a score Keith!  Thanks for sharing.  I'll bet it takes a bit to preheat.  🙂

I have two of those old PW stoves and I have to say the larger version is my favorite stove. it takes a bit of a pre-heat but then it runs great. Nice find

Cool stove.  How did you discover it?

@TwoCanoes it was on FB marketplace. Took me better than a week to pick it up, I offered to Paypay funds, the gal said no worries, and she held it( don't know if anybody else had contacted her)
She was a "lover of old stuff" and had mountains of it in her garage (she showed me) but was running out of room. She had bought the stove at a yard sale, she said once they saw her looking at it they wouldn't let her leave without it.  Overall a great transaction, I really enjoyed the lady and her stories.

The dual wheelie! GREAT SCORE! I think I have the same one but no 1935 comics. lol  Super nice of her to hold onto it for you. Now that's the way it's supposed to work.

Fantastic score Keith! 
Love the flame shot.
The case is cool testimony to how much someone valued their stove, I'm sure they would be very happy to know it is in safe hands and will continue to serve as intended as well as provide great enjoyment.

PS, I have been using CRC Rust Converter lately.
I carefully clean off any major rust heave manually and then apply the liquid converter with an artist paint brush or cotton tip, wiping any excess off paint before it dries.
Leaves the rust spots a dark/black color, which would work fine with your black case.

EXCELLENT stove and find Keith!

Mine leaked after I first fired it up too. Haven't taken it out of storage in a few years though.

I used good ol' Turtle car wax on the lightly rusted spots then the whole outside. I suppose some #0000 fine steel wool and alcohol would take the rust down to bare metal easily enough and it will wipe off with a paper towel. 

Glad you saved it.

Very nice find Keith! Google “organic oven cleaner” I have used it on several oldie suitcase stoves with great results. It removes rust and grime yet preserves any remaining paint.

Congrats finding a nice stove, Keith!  Looks to be in very good condition.  Once you get it ready for cooking, you already have the paper to read while you eat.

Awesome! You know what, I'm convinced that cases can make a huge difference assuming that it's never been in a flood, of course! Everything was kept together, the paint looks good, burners work. Wow!

I gotta agree.  And cases are cool!!! The door on this one was hinged in such a way it barely left room for stove egress, I changed the hinges and now it goes in and out much better.
@Coldwaterpaddler your Handwarmer went out today!!

Let me guess, you lit it up using the fuel that was stored in it back in 1935😁
