That is a useful side-by-side(-by-side) comparison, thanks. Glad to see you got one of the little Optimus sets.
Nice intro first post. Thanks for all the pics and input. Keep us updated on how it holds up to your needs.
Using some of the extra pressurized...
Beautiful piece however.
I am going to sound snippy but it is not meant that way. If this information is critical to your plans, you should not trust what you...
Sounds like you are strongly leaning towards gas but have you ruled out a Trangia?
I have one in similar shape and with a burner plate made from the bottom of a spray paint can. It has sat outside on my cinder-block...
Do I understand this is your first 123? You found a nice one there. You set the bar pretty high if you want to upgrade that collection.
@Twoberth You do dig into these ideas with more attention to detail than I ever could.

That's just good science.
Any chance you can get...
Of course ](*,) -- thanks.
You should only have to pump it at the start and maybe a little more once it is burning.
It might be stuck in "start-up" mode and bleeding off...
Wow. Beautiful job and very convincing.
Totally debunks my best guess. And, I don't see how the pressure in the number 1 burner...
Boring perhaps, certainly esoteric. Still fun.
I had to look up "halting problem". It did not solve anything for me.
Interesting. Thanks gunsoo.
So many copies of the multi-tool -- do I see a beer bottle opener?
OK, thanks, got it. I liked you diagrams, but was not quite sure of the final conclusion.
I may have missed something, because I just now read through this thread, but it seems to me an important premise had not been established to be...
Good question. It is individual-specific, intuitive, and inconsistent -- to me anyway.
Separate names with a comma.
