It apparently heats up a tube that causes the liquid gas to atomize just before it hits the burner assembly.

Then I found a brass wood handled blow torch that my dad used to use back in the 50's. Same little tray used to preheat the delivery tube.

Finally I have a big silver carbide lantern that my grandfather used to use when he camped out. We have a sportsman store down close to our house who still sells carbide. I used this lamp back in mid 80's on a houseboat trip up in Voyager National Park up by International Falls Mn.

Ah, that's what I thought. Unfortunately, I no longer own it. It is on its way to Arizona and a new owner. I can't recall if there were numbers on the bottom, but I'm pretty sure it was made in '51.

You know, I have what looks to be an old white gas single burner stove in my garage. It was there when I bought the place, but never have had the nerve to toss it out. I'll take some pics of it and post 'em here, too...
