    Found this on EBay,,, only know about them from what I’ve read here. It was listed for $41, I bid, no other bidders were interested,,, It’ll look nice as a what-not if nothing else. Everything is labeled, even has an instruction pamphlet,,, tomorrow, if time allows, I’ll oil the pump leather and see how far I can go,,, maybe even attempt to light it.

    Just a cool looking wee stove...

    I’ll have a look in the Stove Gallery for more information on it,,, but if anyone has tips or advice to offer, I’d certain sure be thankful of it.

    They can be faulty. In my write-up of a Burmos 21, I featured a repair of a stress crack in its pump tube.

    Terry (Trojandog) had three in succession with pump tube issues, which prompted him to list tongue-in-cheek Uses for a Burmos 21.

    But hey, yours may be ok!!

    Fingers and toes crossed @presscall ...

    I‘Ve read some of those threads you mention, but I sort I figured I’ve paid more at restaurants for meals I couldn’t eat than I did for the stove, and the stove will, if nothing else, look nifty on a shelf,,, uneaten restaurant meals, not so much.

    Mine works great! Only replaced the pump leather, lid seal and the NRV. Yeah, and brazed all the cracks in the burner risers... But I'm mental, I drive a Land Rover. Voluntarily.

    Finally got around to oiling the pump leather, and giving the stove some kerosene. It lit up without issue, but the flame is maybe a bit yellow. I don’t see any fuel leaks, so that’s promising.

    I probably didn’t preheat it long enough either,,, I’m like a kid with a stove most of the time.

    Decidedly. Pump rod’s not projecting, so a sound example.

    Maybe a jet change to replace an enlarged jet. Potentially easy with that removable burner plug but the access hole it exposes is of a smaller diameter than jet keys intended for silent burners.

    Thank you @presscall

    I’ll add that to my parts list for my next order.
