Today I came upon the following tips and know-how on the popular stove's of the era that I had saved from a mid 70's EMS catalog. A time when catalog's not only sold gear but also offered useful information on it's usage. The photographs were taken as closely as possible hoping that the reader could enlarge or zoom in on the text. If not, an email with attachment's could be sent that should help. Note:  Photo's have been uploaded to "my photographs". Double click on each photo for an enlargement.

The detail in the 70's era EMS catalogs was amazing, almost like reading The Complete Walker while shopping.

Goodness, it hadn't occurred to me that someone may want there own copy or do you mean that the original's cut from the catalog are worth something? I just sent the original's along with the Svea stove and Sigg cookset that I sold. I thought that since they were leaving my hands, I would post them here as a source of information------ and their cool! If your interested purely for your own copy, I'm thinking they could be printed from "my photo's" to have in hand? Or, I could send them to you as an attachment from an e-mail? I'm a bit of an old dummy on computer's but learning. Keep's the brain young right?
