What have you found in the thrift stores that you can modify or use as is?

Bought meself a Coleman Apex II for $15. Came with an extra fuel bottle and both were full of fuel. The pump works fine but it needs a needle valve O-ring.. I also bought a clunker 425F for $10.00. I don't know why I bought the F. I already have a 425E. I guess it was an impulse buy isle purchase? (haha im dumb.. flea markets ARE huge gigantic impulse buy isles!)

We all need more than one stove
Yeah I am not sure how I feel about the stove. It's feels fragile as if I were to ever even fart in its general direction, the stove would crush like a soda can under a cinder block.
Put it on a shelf and admire it for a length of time then put it in a drawer for a few months and then take it out and fire it up and boil some water for a Mountain House luncheon meal. Fire it up before you put it on a shelf to see how well it burns.
