    Here is the latest addition to my collection - a nice Monitor Picnic in aluminum case. It was in good condition, all I had to do was replacement of the pump leather (with one of Sefa's production) and it burns happily. It still has to wait a while for the Brasso treatment.

    I love those flame shots...

    Is that burning "lamp oil"??

    I ran out of kerosene and tried some high quality lamp oil in my 1/2 pt and it burned so hot that I thought the burner bell was going to melt down.

    Love my 17B!!!

    I almost bid on one of these. Really like the look of the case.

    Enjoy,

    Did you get the travelling cap? It screws onto the threaded part directly below the burner bell. They are often missing from these stoves. If you need to get one made, I have a drawing somewhere - I'll see if I can find it.

    Yes, it came with the travelling cap (and two prickers) - sorry I forgot to include it in the photo. No instructions, though. Thanks for the drawing.

    Hi Ian is the travelling cap a push fit or is it threaded. I have a set of instructions for the stove but not a scanner, if you want a set then PT me your addy and I'll send you a photo copy.

    Si,
    the traveling cap is threaded. It screws onto a threaded portion of the burner lipstick just below the burner bell,

    The cap has a piece of rubber packing right up at the top inside. When the cap is screwed down tight this packing seals the jet hole in the end of the lipstick.

    You'll have a PT soon.

    I spent some time yesterday polishing and cleaning the stove, so here are a few additions to the photo gallery. Some of the tarnish on the tank is very stubborn (probably faded lacquer?) so I will have to invest more time until it gets the shine I want.

    AR: the flame shots are with regular Kerosene. There's no lamp oil here.

    Today this stove passed the "coffee test" (in 4:30 minutes). The decorative finjan is my recent acquisition from Yerevan, Armenia.

    Hi Yonadav, Love the stove, which you have made a great job of. The ibrik/cezve/finjan is very elegant.
    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Based on analysis by TrojanDog, I can estimate that my stove is of the post- 1950 design. This is indicated by the slotted base of the burner, the brass flame plate and the thin pump knob.

    Thanks, TD, for your detailed comparison.
