I've enjoyed the month!
Gotta love the lion feet.
In the '70s and '80s the only Trangias I ever saw in the US were the bare burner with the "Westwind" pot stand (which I believe was not made by...
Of course you can ask us. I think we just misunderstood the tone of your questions.
I use stoves from the '60s and '70s because I'm familiar...

Welcome to CCS.
Nice looking stove. Welcome to CCS.
I also use a wick like @kerophile 's, but I insert a short length of SS wire lengthwise through the "worm" so that it holds its shape once bent....
The key is a newer one also. The ones you have will work fine. BTW, the original style chain is called "register chain". You can see pictures of...
