Hey Mike! I was wondering when you were going to chime in. I figure you would like this stove . It reminded me of your home comfort. It looks I will be building a water tank for two of us now
When I saw it at the salvage yard and what great condition it was I wanted to call you I was so excited but then realized I only had your email address !
You know the more and more I look at this stove and learn about it the more I like it. Not to mention the cool name.
zephyr- a slight wind (usually refreshing)
Zephyr - (Greek mythology) the Greek god of the west wind
Interesting name for a cook stove .
About the spring and rod. I see where that would hold tension on the door and why they would call it a full proof spring now.
I am going to need a class on how to run this cook stove . So maybe we can get together when I build that tank . Do other cook stoves have that fine adjustment in the back as this one does?
Btw it seems that anytime I buy something old especially a stove I can't ever find much info on it. The WM I found a good deal. The pearl there is nothing about it, the deville is worth a god amount of money and I found a little about it and then the zephyr is almost as bad as the pearl I can only find one govt. record of A&J Manufacturing Company in Gladsden AL .
