    I found this in a box of stuff. Heard that before right? It has Taylor M.P. Co. DA-11-009-22965 with a big U.S. and 1953 stapmed on it. Stands 8" tall and 4-1/4" in diameter. The 2 outside rings are 5" in diameter. I did not unroll the string to see how long they are. Any help with the ID would be nice
    Thanks
    George

      It may be part of the top section of the chimney for an Army potbelly stove.

      It could be a vent cover for a fuel storage tank. But the three strings throw me for a loop though.

      The strings are what gave me doubt also. Diameter is about right for the old multi fuel stoves. When I ran the DA number it came back to a tech/service manual for a gas operated warehouse tow vehicle.....similar to a fork lift but no forks. One you would use to tow an airplane with a tow bar.

      Wonder if it could be a rain cover / spark arrestor(SP) for a tow motor ?
    5. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 11 years ago
      My first thought was spark arrestor or a baffle to help eliminate noise. Again the strings cause me to have questions. In 1953 the military was using NESCO stoves with a 4" pipe. I didn't find anything that matched this item??????

      I found out the item is a Yukon Heater Stove Model US M1950 draft deverter. It goes on top of the smoke pipe to cut down on down draft for gas fuels. The ropes are tied to the ten to support the pipe.
