    Saw this on a certain auction site - anyone bought and used it? I have an Aladdin suitcase stove with a stuck nrv. Already broken a standard tool on it. Soaked it fur days, Unfortunately I don’t have the tools to make my own, and I’m no good at brazing so not confident taking the pump tube out.

    One end is for Coleman check valves, the other for Primus etc. nrv.

    If not this one, does anyone know where I could buy a decent tool?

    Thanks in advance
    Andy.

    I bought this for use on an Aladdin suitcase stove, mainly because it is longer than a lot of other NRV tools and the Aladdin has a long pump tube. It worked well, it’s a very nicely made tool.

    It does, I had the same problem. I have three Aladdin stoves with removable pump tubes, this one doesn’t and it leaks like a sieve!

    good to hear it’s well made, think I’ll buy it. Will let you know how I go!

    I guarantee if you use that on a Coleman check valve you'll ruin the valve and be left with a mess. The proper Coleman tool is drilled through the center so a threaded rod can be screwed into the valve that holds the blade into the slot in the valve.

    Good point. Maybe I’ll just use the Primus end.

    Thanks for the advice!
