Been wanting a kerosene two burner for a few years. So when Alex offered this one I had to have it. Burning with yellow flame tips. Will have to do some cleaning on the burners. Otherwise she is good to go!!!

    These have the tabs on the windshield to keep them in place, a PITA. New jets can be replaced.

    @cooter303 Fine stove. Blue flames to find, for sure. Hint of blue there, may just burn off to blue-up.

    When It warms up here next week, I will fire it up and let it burn for awhile. Try heating up some lead to cast some bullets!!!

    These are great stoves. BTW they run on Kerosene or white gas without a jet change. That was a big selling point when they came to market.

    Very nice.

    I would run it with clean, high quality, kerosene for a while before changing anything. Maybe inspect the jets.
    I quit using gas in these NRV stoves. Just my preference.
