made in January, 1981. These were
sold in Canada and do not have UL approval, lacking a
tip-over switch. With the bottom tank and a nice
carry handle, this heater would be ideal for a fishing
hut or some other purpose where the heater would
have to be carried and move frequently, as the bottom
tank is far less prone to spill fuel when moved.
I purchased and refurbished it just in case someone
wanted it for that purpose.

"Boiling Stove", made in England,
probably post war, likely used as a "caravan" heater
and stove. Essentially, this is a very successful
update of the 1880's "sad iron heater" such as the
"Golden Star." This heater uses a 4" wide wick
cut from the B&H lamp wick. It can boil a
teakettle of water in 10 minutes - with no fumes or
soot. Virtually identical to an all-brass stove
made in Germany circa 1900. From my collection.

stove from WW I era, folding for
easy carrying. Quite rare! A stand unfolds from the lid
for balancing a small pot or canteen. The brass cap on
the lower right screws tightly over the wick so
kerosene does not leak during carrying. A US 25
cent coin and a WW I era .25-20 Winchester cartridge
case are shown as comparison for size. This
little stove uses a 1 1/2" section of lamp wick to
produce heat - not much - but it is an interesting
piece of history. From

Kerosene heater igniter
"EcoFan" for wood
stoves. The difference in
temperature between the base and the "fins" on the top
creates enough electricity to turn a fan and circulate
heat. This fan has very limited use for kerosene
heaters: It cannot be use on a convection heater;
it can be used on some radiant heaters which are not
insulated on top, but not over open vent holes directly
over the catalytic converter. It works very well
on an Aladdin Tropic, but the photo shows it cannot get
enough heat to move on the well insulated Aladdin
TR2000. From my
fan. This all-metal fan can
sit on top of a heater and help distribute the
heat. Note the vents on top: air is pulled down
through the top, cooling the electric motor, and then
blown through the circular 1/2" gap at the base of the
unit, thus circulating heated air slightly toward the
floor. Note also that the electric cord is
suspended on a wire rack to keep it away from the most
intense heat. From
reflector. Shown sitting on
top of a DC-100. This reflector is designed to
fit behind the glass chimney on a Moonlighter heater,
reflecting heat toward the front while allowing the
heater to be closer to a combustible wall or
furnishings. The reflector is stainless steel with an
insulation air space and an enameled back panel. It was
designed to be attached to the grill.
1918 Perfection heater advertisement.
Note the thrust of the
advertisement: A kerosene heater allowed a family
to avoid crowds obtaining coal to heat their homes and
thus avoid the influenza pandemic which ravaged the
world, killing at least 20,000,000 people. And
now we have the possibility of an avian flu pandemic
that could be far worse than the one in

truck tanks for kerosene storage (Old steel Mack truck 110 gallon tanks salvaged
(i.e., free). I cleaned them up, painted them, then put
them on cradles built from pressure treated 4 x 4'x and
2 x 4's for cross bracing. A boiler valve with
1/2" clear vinyl tubing allows containers to be filled
by gravity flow. They have worked like a charm
since I set them up in 1999.
