This one is just for looks…for now.I see one of those picnic stoves at our local antique store all the time! Can you still find gas for them? Or are they just for looks? lol
I've got several of these picnic stoves from the 60s. they're not a barn burner at 14,000ft but they get the job done. cool kitsch. they look good on the shelf too. the do-hickey you mentioned allows you to use the more common lp cans like this. got the doo-hickey on Ebay they work just fine.This one is just for looks…for now.
There’s supposed to be a dohickey a guy could find, and some shade tree techniques, that…allegedly…allow you to fill an empty LP can with butane…and then use in these stoves or an LP lantern.
If I come across a legit, field proven technique I will share here.
