I found the alcohol stove
I had, which was a bit different, was very efficient for cooking. It used cotton-wicked canisters, which provided an even flame and no possibility of a flareup or spill. The flame was regulated by a flat plate that snuffed out either a portion of the flame for lower heat, or covered the canister completely, which snuffed out the flame altogether. The cost of denatured alcohol, however, is pretty high.
Now I have LP, it's very safe when you have a solenoid and sniffer installed, as posted above. A 20-pound propane gas tank will last you most of a year if you're cooking on the stove
-top several days a week. The LP gas oven
consumes a lot more, but I don't know of an alcohol or kerosene oven
I did a bit of research and found the old stove I had. It was made by Origo and gimbled. Here's a photo of the stove.
Good luck, and the restoration looks great,
