Burns auto gas well.
the guys on the survival site would be interested in a stove that burned auto gas.looks like a mash up of a M1950 military stove.
Nice flames! The stove design seems to be influenced by the Coleman line of stoves.
i really wish my Coleman Exponent Multi-fuel (550B) had a nice red valve knob like this stove!
Where can I buy one?
E-bay is you best chance of getting one I guess.
I bought a BRS-12 on Eport. It cost $65 including shipping! LI's pictures are better than the ones I can take, but I would add that I think he was burning Kero as with Coleman it's a nice blue with the slightest hint of orange only at the tips. The box arrived is "not so great" condition but the stove was unharmed. Oddly they mention the spec's for Kero in BTU and Coleman in Kcal - my unit conversion tool image might help..... As a first impression - the pump is actually comfortable to use, no more mashed knuckles! It's very light, and the simmer control works well. I have only used it with Coleman fuel. An interesting tip on the box is to blow out the flame just as it's about to go out? Perhaps that helps to keep the soot down? Looks like an asbestos pad is used for priming and it holds A LOT of spirits. I use about 1/4 of an ounce and it seems happy. More when I learn more. Excuse poor pic of the round carry case, it's a simple nylon round case with a zipper on top, stove and tool fit inside.
Two more tables will help with the somewhat unusual units used
these fireworks are normal with this burner??
Not enough preheat, he should use more alcohol!
cold environments works well
Hi Li Ding, nice photo's!
Are you practising target shooting or bow hunting?
He's practicing for the hunger games.
It is very nice to see a traditional style bow being used. Do you shoot with a thumb ring or with the fingertips?
just practising target shooting

for 30 notes including postage from China I thought why not - and here it is
initial thoughts are - it feels very light compared to a 442 which it strongly resembles
it arrives with a rubbery funnel - a primus looking multi tool - a non padded vinyl case and a bulin looking cardboard box and a msr looking fuel valve lever but no rubber lanyard on the filler cap! i'm sending it back! in pieces!
and the fuel cap has a safety valve built in but a different thread to a coleman
time for coffee then I am taking it apart
breaks down very easily
supplied with one jet it is claimed to burn kerosene or gasoline - no shaker widget under the jet but there might be room to fit one
no coleman style self prime on this - just a simple fuel pick up with an msr looking filter and a needle valve with 2 o rings
a thin cleaning wire in the generator and a primus looking burner bell
bulin looking pump
but what of the nrv?
I roughly filed down an old screwdriver to get the nrv out - might grind a bit more off before I put it back
I wish coleman nrvs came out that easy
it has been said that this nrv is suitable only for kerosene and I am inclined to agree - so how can I transplant a coleman locking nrv into this stove so I can run it on white gas?
I forgot to mention that the priming pad looks suspiciously like woven asbestos - so that's getting double wrapped in plastic and built in to a doorway I am bricking up tomorrow
so - a possible fix for the nrv issue
I intend to transplant the burner on to a coleman tank with the coleman nrv in it
I have chosen a 442 with a bolted on burner mount rather than the older welded on type
I will need to make a burner bracket and an adapter for the valve top fuel connecter as the generator gland nuts have different threads
will report back next week when I have done the deed
had a rethink on a metal burner bracket - Li Ding's original post shows this burner runs very hot - I want to reduce heat transmission to the tank and perhaps form a heat shield between the tank and the burner
looking around the shed I have found the very thing to do it
