I didn't realize they were the same that far back. One of the very best outdoor inventions on the 20th century. I aquired a used one as a young adult in the 70s. For reasons I don't remember I bought a new one in the late 80's. It spent over 25 years in the box in the loft of my shed. The mice chewed up the box and the dirt daubers moved it. It worked like a champ when I finally used it a few years ago. I melt lead for my blackpowder pistols when it isn't camping. I should be good for the rest of my camping life.
