    Very interesting. It appears to generate a nice clean kerosene-fueled priming flame. Thank you for the excellent presentation.

    WOAH! :shock:

    Cool!!!

    Great stove Gunsoo!

    I am confused about the syringe though.
    They want you to prime with kerosene? :-s

    Edit*** Looks like Itchy beat me to it.
    Would someone please elaborate upon how the clean priming flame is achieved? I've seen the rapid preheaters elsewhere with finely atomized kerosene, but am unfamiliar with the preheater seen here on Gunsoo's stove.

    Hi Gunsoo very nice stove you have, I have a monitor regal as well, monitor stoves and blowlamps were very good quality and were one of the most popular British brands

    Nice pictures.
    So having a wick allows kerosene to preheat?

    Hello Gunsoo

    I have a soft spot for these stoves, they are a very powerful stove.
    I have several in the SRG.

    For those who haven't seen the pdf. for the anti-tamper tool see Link

    Hi Ken.

    if only kerosene use, does not well fire,
    because of asbestos wick, well fire.

    Yes, the perforated collar acts as a kind of chimney and causes the flame to create an upward current of air. That, in turn, causes air to be drawn through the perforations in the collar, thus providing sufficient oxygen for a blue flame. I haven't lit one of these too often but I've found it's necessary to lift the collar at first until the priming flame gets right around the wick and well alight. Then you can lower the collar and the system then works as I've described above.

    It's a similar system to that found on certain Tilley lanterns with paraffin preheaters.

    Nice photos Gunsoo.

    I didn't know about the syringe feature. I bet this is the only company that did that. Thanks for sharing

    Hi Doug I have not seen the syringe feature, in any stove except for monitor stoves.
    I may be wrong but Monitor had many patents, if not the most of all British stoves

    I didnt realize it burned as cleanly as that. I have dipped twisted paper wicks into my fuel tank when I have been without meths but the results are always yellow sooty smelly flames.

    If you look at German Hasag and later Mewa (East Germany) lanterns you can see that they use a similar technique.

    Quite possibly.

    I should have mentioned that the Tilley system doesn't have the syringe and instead, uses tank pressure to get kero into the preheater arrangement. There's a separate feed tube from the tank to the wick area which is controlled by it's own cock. Once the tank is pressured up, you lift the burner collar to reveal the wick and open the cock. Kero flows onto the wick and once it's saturated, you close the cock. It's far less fiddly and messy than the Monitor system.

    I've no idea about how the Hasag and Mewa systems work, although I vaguely recall seeing photographs somewhere - likely here.

    Yes, it's the result of having an organised airflow to the wick. As an investigation, I wonder if some clever soul here could fabricate a similarly perforated collar and try this with a wick and kero on a conventional stove usually primed with meths... :-k
