I recently purchased one of these. Anyone have one that can pass on some instructions and general info. Mine was without instructions.

From a vintage collection site, all they had:
Model: Vulcan Safety Chef
Fuel: non-liquid alcohol (SaFuel)
Vulcan
American brand, produced in Connecticut by The Vulcan Radiator Manufacturing Company.
Cooking kit included.

I wanted to know if it ran on canned jelled alcohol. Is there a site link that gives a whole bunch of info?

The unit inside is very interesting, catalytic converter of sorts.

Skids, the aluminum cook kit came with mine. I liked the kit, it is what I mainly wanted. The converter assembly was 2nd.

Oops, you have 5. Five Vulcans!!!!! Your are a mega collector :D Thanks a bunch for the photos of yours. I'll have to do some web searches for more info. Any instructions on the can in the photo?

The tour of your shop was awsome, I'll be back tomorrow with more ?????

The second photo: is it a snuffer plate?

Third photo: white ring looks to be an asbestos sealing ring. It was in a delaminating state. I peeled off the pieces and zip lock bagged them and into the garbage YUK!!!!

Fourth photo looks like a spring device that would keep a can of fuel tight up against the white asbestos ring.
