    Hello
    Got this stove last year. Burns white gas very well and easy to regulate flame. But it was not a beauty. Paint had been burnt away by pre-heating and there was lot of rust.Put the tank in water with caustic soda and applied 12 vdc. Next day tank was ready for a paint job.The colour looks quite like original. Installed washer and pip from Fettlebox. Found a spirit cup which I fitted. And I'm happy with the result. Have tried to search the forum to see if anybody makes the stove labels for the 625.

    Any ideas ?

    Hi let me know if you find any, I need some for my 625 but I think the chances are very slim.
    By the way great paint job.
    The 625 seems a very quick boiling stove to me what do you think? Its much faster than my kero stoves at making an espresso.
    Good luck in your hunt.

    Better go to "Copy-Center". They prin on hi-tech printers and have as well self adhesive paper - simply go with memory stick and that is !!

    Hi
    Received the self adhesive paper today and ran a few copies through the printer. Noticed that the ink on the label did not like meths/white gas. Had to cover the label with a few layers of clear spray paint.What kind of transparent paint are you guys using for this ? brgds Bjørn

    Hi Bjørn,

    Nice work !!!
    I think laser printing is better - I print decals with laser printer and fuel not affect printed colors or letters.

    To get these labels printed by laser I will have to find a "Copy center" I suppose. I have only a cheap inkjet and some cheap self adhesive paper bought on eBay. But when I protect the label with clear paint it holds out quite well.brgds Bjørn

    You'll see the printing differences from hi-tech printers at "Copy-Center" Shop. You will not need anymore extra clair paint or other label protection.
    I use some sort of Panel Wipe and never (up to now) had problems.

    P.S.Pay attention to the label size ~(93 x 27 mm)and setup printing format to A4 !!!!
