I found this item in an attic. It tag on it says it is an FP Lighting System, The Incandescent Light and Stove Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. It has a hand pump that I found with it. Does anyone have any idea or information on this item.

    FoThanks to the Liquid Fueled Lighting guys, I got this information. "" What you have is the "gas machine" part of a Stubbers gasoline heating/lighting plant made by Incandescent Light and Stove Co., Cincinnati, OH. This is the smaller kitchen sized unit, as opposed to the larger whole-house system. The F-P ("fool proof, fire-proof") system was a LOW pressure system where the gasoline is gassified IN the plant itself, and conducted thru the piping just like city gas. These systems were denigratingly referred to as "gutter pipe" by the folks that made hollow wire. I'd date your unit in the 1910 to 1915 period, give or take 5 years either way. If you are headed for the big internet auction with this item, please be sure to get the information STRAIGHT! We don't mind giving info to make descriptions better, but HATE to be misquoted! :: Fil Graff ::""
    und this on a web site chat board, I think you may have the 'Whole house size'

    Thanks. It was found in the attic of an old masonic temple built in 1904. Thanks for the help. Not much info on the web about it. It looks good in the shop.
