    Hi all,
    the missus and I went to this second-hand shop today, and while walking through the shop I heard this little voice; "Mister, please! Buy me! I need a good home, please mister!" I looked around, rather puzzled until I saw this poor, mistreated Buflam stove. Now gentlemen, I ask you, could you resist this plea? I bet you not! So I took her home with me, and will give her the tender loving care she needs to give her full life again. ;)
    As you can see from the photo's, the poor thing came potstand-less, but surprisingly with both inner & outer caps and no other parts missing (the NRV will need to be examined, and the pumpcup is no-go but hey, that's peanuts!). The legs are twisted, the outer cap needs to be re-doomed and the bottom took some hits, hopefully there are no leaks!
    Can any of you gents tell me what type this is, possible an estimated date of birth? (as one does not ask a lady's age I hope someone can help me here :whistle: )
    Once she's back in flames, I'll post some more photo's.

    Regards,

    Hi Wim,

    You should turn the spirit cup upside down. It is nice to see a lovely stove has found a warm home to live in...

    Hi Sefa, that's how I found it! If you look close at the last photo, it is turned around already :D .

    Regards,
