Greetings all, This will be my first official post as I just recently found this forum. I have restored a '74 Coleman stove for my first camp stove and use it for my trips now and I am in possession of an Optimus 8R which the lid was bashed in so that will be my next. I am excited to see how that turns out. I have to first give my thanks to you all as you have been a great inspiration and a tremendous help. A big shout-out to Idahostoveguy for assisting this newb in how a "preheat cup" works. It fired right up! I found this stove on CL which was being sold by the neighbor of the deceased. I've never heard of the brand but now know more than I ever imagined. Everything was in pretty good condition and I went with the Kona Brown for the case. Another member used that and I really enjoyed the look. The only issue is the pump does not push any air out, I'm assuming the leather cup needs to be replaced. I saturated in oil to "rehydrate" and the leather seems to be in good condition but just doesn't command a seal. Since this is an odd size, I was wondering what people could suggest? For now, my mouth and hands were the pressurizer...not ideal and little power but enough to see a flame. Anyways, enjoy!
