    I picked up this Phoebus 725 clone from a fellow just down the road from me in Tasmania. Not beautiful, but sturdy.

    It had been hardly used and did not need fettling so I haven't pulled it down - started first pop.

    ... and for the tea-test. It boiled, outside on a cold and windy Tasmanian day, 1 litre in 7min 29 seconds:

    This is the same stove as here:

    looks a nice stove and quite unlike the sun power stove I have and need to right up.
    That one though is a optimus 323 clone and needs to be written up under stoves with murderous intent.

    Excellent stove ( not too murderous I hope!) and a great set of photos.

    Hi, Tony,

    What a great little stove, and in excellent knick, too! Once you check all the seals, and replace as needed, I think it will be a wonderful and reliable stove for you!! It's a pretty good copy of the original Phoebus 725 design, and looks to be ready to rock and roll!! Well done, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc
