Another newbie question, please.
I spent hours reading all kinds of amazing posts and tutorials first, but finally realized I could spend weeks reading what experience could inform me about in minutes.
(I did find a tutorial on starting up a vintage two burner box stove, but couldn’t find one on a single burner like mine.)
I have a Coleman Speedster 500 (1947) on the way that was “tested” which hopefully implies functioning properly without leaks, but who ever really knows until they try?
I have enjoyed using Colman stoves and lanterns for decades, but zero experience in dealing with the old and possibly compromised gear.
Imagine that YOU are receiving this 70+ years old device; please walk me through every basic step I can/should do before lighting up this antique stove.
(Keep in mind I have limited mechanical skills and very basic tools, please.)
Finally I’ll say that I am fascinated and impressed with the world of information and skills represented here. Thanks!
