Sears Strike

Postby Woodbutcher » Sun May 11, 2014 6:21 pm

Just when I said I had not seen any Sears stuff I find this today at the Flea market. It has never been fired up. No fuel smell in the tank. The dealer held firm at 10 bucks. I buckled and handed him the money.....then I ran away. :lol: Looks like a 1976 according to the instruction book that came with it.

I remember Dad having one similar. I think his may have been a Coleman. I remember thinking to 10 year old self how weird of a design it was to have the fuel tube going over the burner.

Nice score by the way. :thumbsup:

OMG, that is the deal of the year! Nice find. :thumbsup:

Now the million dollar question: Will you light it and use it, or is it too special?

I will light it and bring it to a gathering this year. Maybe I am nuts but I believe in using all my stuff. It just seems wrong to let is sit on a shelf for another 40 years.
