    Finally got around to posting this Campingo 1. Was inspired by the recent posts

    This is exactly how it arrived, no fetteling , just added some white gas and gave it a go. Flame is a little on the timid side , even though stove is pumped up good and jet was pricked ( eek ). May need a simple burner cleaning. But will do later as this is not really a user as it's so clean.

    Hi Tom. You have a gem of a stove. You are right, it is really clean. Looks like the burner isn't doing too badly as the ring is the telltale red. The case and tank are in great condition. Nice. Thanks for sharing.

    Have a great day,
    sam

    A great looking stove you have there.
    It is nice to see them in very good condition - especially the earlier ones like your one is.
    The brass tanks seem to be of a thicker gauge brass compared to the later 111's so denting appears less prevalent on these models. They seem to be gruntier than the later 111's as well.
    I agree with idahostove-that the flame does look pretty good. Cheers

    Hi All,

    Sam, threedots thank you for the kind comments. It's a fine stove , but I must confess i have a bit of flame-envy when I see threedots flame :mrgreen: , but one day maybe i'll fettle it and see if I can get it run that good. Thanks again you all

    Tom
