We've had some delightful old photographs this year from Houghton County Historical Society, Michigan Tech Archives, and several regular Pasty Cam Watchers. Today's window on the past (from the HCHS collection) brings back the aroma of hot pasties from the kitchen. I love the detail of this shot... the old stove, hot kettle for tea, draft control on the wall, Mama's dress and shoes and hair in a bun... and those beauties in the pie plates. Mmmmm :o)

Just a side note from your editor: we do payroll for our cooks at Pasty Central on the 15th and the last day of each month. Today's time cards are laying here next to my computer... and they are literally radiating pasty aroma. Mmmmm. Maybe we should develop some kind of pasty-flavored air freshener?

This wonderful lady is now gracing one of our new Pasty t-shirts as well. Be sure to stop by our Pasty Central tent at this year's Bridgefest 2001 Festival on the Houghton Waterfront if you are in the area this week-end. You'll be able to check out our new line of Pasty Softwear clothing and purchase it there or have it sent anywhere in the country. For those of you not in the Copper Country this week, you can visit our new gift section online.

This picture reminds me of how my wife's uncle used to tell his kids that Aunt Edith, my wifes mother, made her pasties so big she had to put one end on a chair while the other end cooked in the oven. Now that is a man sized pasty.


By David S. - CA on Friday, June 15, 2001 - 01:38 pm:

Wow. This picture brings back memories. I lived in Laurium with my parents and sisters in the 1950's and we had one of those old wood stoves in the kitchen. It always seemed like the place to be especially during winter. Even our dog loved to sleep near it.


By Tim in Oscoda on Friday, June 15, 2001 - 02:28 pm:

Just made a batch of 18 last week...can still smell them! Wish we could bottle it!


By R Somero CA on Friday, June 15, 2001 - 09:45 pm:

Does anyone remember that damper control on the wall? It went to the Holland furnace in the basement. There was a warm air register in the first floor above the furnace and each bedroom on the second floor had a smaller register in it's floor. These had dampers in them so the amount of air could be controlled. Now we have automatic thermostats to do all of this. How about the Heatrola(sp)wood heater in the living room? I also remember a Jungers 2 burner oil stove in the livingroom, am I old or what?!!


By Ken Holster on Saturday, June 16, 2001 - 11:46 am:

I remember that old damper control. Talk about modern conveniences! Didn't even have to go down the basement. We had one of those wood/coal Heatrolas, too. Didn't have one of those darned
Jungers 'til after I was married. Long as that burner was clean it would roast you out. But when we tried to turn it down, the thing would get all carboned up and NO heat would come. Used rubbing alcohol to get it started. Nah, R, we're not really that old yet. Although we do have a good start on it. :o)

THIS WONDERFUL LADY WAS MY GRANDMOTHER, EDITH MOYLE FILLBROOK. SHE LIVED ON BARAGA STREET IN HOUGHTON. THE OVEN WAS THE SAME USED FOR MY MOTHER AND HER TWIN SISTER AS AN INCUBATOR WHEN THEY WERE BORN. THEY WERE SO SMALL THEY WERE PUT IN BOXES WITH COTTON AND PLACED IN THE OVEN. THEN WERE FED WITH EYE DROPS. LIVED TO RIPE OLD AGES. MY GRANDMA MADE THE BEST PASTIES EVER. THIS PICTURE WAS ALSO IN THE DETROIT FREE PRESS. THANK YOU FOR THE WONDERFUL SURPISE AND MEMORIES.

By Daryl Laitila on Sunday, June 17, 2001 - 04:49 pm:

I'd like to have "Cookie" contact me so that I can have some more history about your grandmother. Edith Moyle Fillbrook. I just returned from our Pasty Softwear booth at Bridgefest and everybody wanted to know who is the lady baking pasties on our t-shirt. Now I have an answer for future customers.

I have a jungers oil cooking stove. It has 4 burner rings and one "o" shaped ring that I think is supposed to go on the bottom of the heating rings. My stove burns too black and sooty.

I have a Jungers two burner oil heater and the carburator does not work like it should, I can't regulate the fuel flow, I think just worn out. Does anyone have any info on carb settings or rebuild kits? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have it in my cabin and would very much like to continue using it in cold northern Wisconsin days.


By Kurt, Michigan on Friday, December 13, 2002 - 12:27 pm:

I was able to purchase a Jungers 1950s operations manual on Ebay. I don't know exactly what model Jungers stove it is for. I have a single burner stove I am hoping that the carburator information in this manual will help me. If it has information that could help I will post is here.


By Jeff, Michigan on Friday, December 20, 2002 - 12:13 am:

I, too, am looking for copies of jungers oil burner stove manuals. Dad has both single & double burner stoves.

If I could get a copy of a manual for either one or both it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.


By Carl/Ely.Mn on Tuesday, December 30, 2003 - 04:08 pm:

I live in Las Vegas Nevada and am looking for a Jungers two burner stove that has all the rings is complete and works like one I had in the 50's. The burners were not the same size so you had great control of the heat output. Bumped into it once and still have the burn mark on my backside.

Hi all,
I just inherited a couple of Jungers heaters.
One has a carb, the other doesnít. Both have small rear tanks, but seem to be missing the mounting brackets. Brown exteriors look nice on both.

Do these olí stoves have any value? Iíd like to find a good home for both of them, otherwise Iíll need to take them to the dump.
I can take digital pictures and get serial numbers if needed.


By Mark Minnesota on Monday, May 17, 2004 - 01:50 am:

In the previous message about the Jungers heaters, make sure you delete the REMOVE from my email address before sending. Thanks. Mark


By Chuck Suzik Ironwood, Mich. on Sunday, July 11, 2004 - 10:21 pm:

I have a Jungers two burner heater. It starts and works well, but an instruction manual and info on fine tuning one of these would be handy to have. Any information on where to find one would be very helpful. Can't beat these heaters.

I do not have room for it. I have purchased too much from auctions and need to start getting rid of most.
If anyone know the history/value/interested please contact me.


By Bill, Osceola, WI. on Thursday, September 23, 2004 - 06:01 pm:

That plate with the instructions on the top of the carb is the top of the carb, there is no other plate used. Basically all they say is the max and minimum feed rates per burner in CC's. 1 CC = .033 ounces and the settings of the burner from lowest to highest (1-6). To light the burners you must place about 2 ounces of alcohol (denatured) in the cavity below the burner cans and light it with a long lighter(if lighting both cans you must do it at the same time!! Never try and jump start a can from the other!! Shut it down, allow it to cool and then light them both), let the alcohol burn for about 4-5 minutes and then turn the black knob up top to #1 setting (lowest) before the alcohol goes out. leave the door open about an inch and watch the oil/kerosene start to vaporize, if it's hot enough it will eventually get really smokey for a couple of minutes and then suddenly take off, you will see the can start to glow very red and as you increase the fuel flow you may even see a perfect blue flame in the center of the can lid. After it starts running good ( and this takes time!! don't expect immediate heat and flames!!) close the door. Keep your cans and burner bases clean!! Take them apart occasionally and wire brush them, scrape out all the crud where the fuel flows in the base and vacuum out the inside of the stove. Also run a good fuel filter before it enters the carb, most heating places sell very efficient screw on fuel filters. Fuel is everything!! The cleaner the better!! Kero is best and #1 works also. Also if you have a tank mounted to the back of your furnace it is for Kerosene or #1 oil depending on what you burned, most people in the old days had large storeage tanks out by the barn or garage and brought fuel in every night to heat with, it was usually very cold and the tank helped pre-heat it which assisted in complete combustion. These heaters are extremely economical to run and usually only burn about 1 3/4 gallons of fuel per burner wide open per day. Hope this helps!!
Slick


By Bob, Minnesota on Saturday, October 2, 2004 - 12:28 pm:

By Dale, Minnesota on Saturday, December 11, 2004 - 10:31 pm:

By Bill, Osceola, WI. on Friday, April 1, 2005 - 03:33 pm:

Brian, what model is it? Look at where the 2 black knobs are on the back side, should say right below them on the chrome plating..Was it working recently? Where in MN are you located? Let me know and I might be able to help you figure what it's worth..
