    It is a coil burner of AGM. It is very small and it is lovely. The feature has been that the opening and shutting valve of the fuel adhered.

    Is that an alcohol or gasoline burner?

    The position of the valve implies that fuel vaporization is happening very low down, actually inside the tank.

    Ooh i have to have one of these.

    It looks like it is a real hot burner, and would boil a liter of water real fast.

    I may have to make my own now i've seen one.

    Hello every one.

    Thank you for a great comment.
    Moreover, we wish to express our gratitude for teaching the photograph of Ross.
    It is a surprise that this knob's it becoming a knob in the coffee cup of the tinplate case. :shock:

    You're welcome. ;)

    I originally thought the hole in the lid was for a handle but I think now it may be to ease removal - to stop a vacuum forming.

    Hi gunsoo .
    Welcome.
    The stove manufacturer in South Korea had heard that there were 80 or more before.
    Very to our regret, it doesn't remain now.
    Please introduce the stove of a lot of South Korea to the member of CCS.

    regards,Motoshi

    Good day!

    I have one of these stoves, complete with case.
    It immediately became clear to me what the hole in the lid is for...
    No, it is not to relieve a vacuum to make the lid easier to remove.
    It allows the lid to become a very effective and easy to use 'funnel' for filling the tank with gasoline!
    I think it is a brilliant design. The height of the hole in the lid limits the amount of fuel that can be poured into the tank in one shot, and it is pretty much spill proof!

    I pulled mine out and gave it a go. Unfortunately the gasket under the fill cap was old and leaked. After the stove burned for a while, and the tank became pressurized, fuel was forced out and I had a huge fireball in my kitchen. Of course it happened just as my wife walked in. I quickly found a pot and turned it over the stove and smothered the fire. Close call.

    Should a newbie read this, note that gaskets and seals should be checked and replaced as necessary before firing up a new-to-you stove.
    Essential also to fire up a stove outdoors. True, some stoves were intended for domestic, indoor, use but our hobby centres on antique stoves and even with new gaskets/seals stress cracks in brass fonts and unseen internal corrosion spots in steel fonts or bases can leak fuel when pressurised.
    Fire Chief (retired) Ben, health and safety warning posted!
    Congratulations on a lovely coil burner.

    @presscall Point taken. I did look at the gasket before firing the stove up. It was there and didn't have any obvious cracks. I think it's just hard and not fully sealing.

    Firing it up outside is a good idea but it's hard to see the flame out in the sunlight. You might have noticed that there is no pre-heat cup on this stove. Getting it started is not easy. I held the coil over my kitchen range until it lit.

    BTW I'm a retired Fire Captain not Chief but thanks for the promotion!
