    Here is a Burmos No. 21 that looks like it has never been used... but, I am assured by the seller, it had been restored (15 years ago) before I bought it.

    Seeing that it has been restored, and not unfired, I'll have to get some flame shots.

    Cheers

    Tony, that is a good looking stove and it is obviously in first class condition.
    Thanks for photographing it so well for the SRG. All the detail can be seen and members can compare it to their own Burmos stoves.

    Hopefully you will be able to get a perfect flame from it.
    In another thread about which stoves are not worth bothering with, Terry wrote . . . .
    I am hoping that your stove will delight Terry.

    That's a challenge, then! I'll see if I can get it going tomorrow night!

    Cheers

    High Tony,

    That's a very nice example with the engraving etc. Do you have the green and maroon coloured tin?

    Try it with a 1/4 filled fount the first time. They are prone to split pump tubes but otherwise they work as well as any 1 pinter that I've tried. The added bonus is the access to the jet / nipple from the top of the burner when you remove the screw in the top.

    Regards
    John

    Where do I start?

    1. @Trojandog & @shagratork


    Trojandog gets soothsayer of the week award for saying he'd never seen a well made Burmos.

    I did fire it up!!! But... It was leaking air out of the pump. So I attempted to remove the NRV: CRACK!!!!!! The end of the pump tube snapped off. No worries. De-soldered the pump tube...

    At the same time, I had noticed when alight that the nipple (jet) was wonky and the flame off-centre. When I went to replace the nipple in the normal way: gentle, no force, the burner tubes twisted like they were putty, and the f¥<€!>g nipple snapped off!!!!

    Photos will follow when I get some sleep and humour.

    Tony

    Awwwwwwwww, Tony.
    I had hoped that your Burmos was going to be the exception to the rule.
    The things that you have just described are the things that other members have mentioned over the years.
