Light Your House and Barns Cook Your Meals
With Home-Made Acetylene
, And Make Your Acetylene With a
Pilot Lighting Plant
Pilot plants make Acetylene automatically a little at
a time as you use it in your gas cooking stove and in
your lights distributed throughout your house, your
barns and out-buildings. You simply fill the generator
with the gas-producing stone "Union Carbide" and
water about once a month.
Pilot plants are approved by The National Board of Fire
All told, over 250,000 country homes are using Acetylene
made the Pilot way.
A complete Pilot plant, consisting of generator, pipes hand
some light fixtures and gas cook stove, can be installed in any
country home in a couple of days time.
Such a plant is a permanent improvement and will furnish
you with the cheapest, safest and most practical light and fuel
now available for country home requirements.
Write for our illustrated catalogs and descriptive booklets
giving all the facts. 1M
