    Very interesting. Hope you get it running.
    I like that style of burner so will love to see it in all its blue-flame glory.

    A variant of the Coleman and AGM stoves.
    It looks well built,
    Thanks for sharing

    Doug L, your suggestion of it being a variant of Coleman and AGM Stoves could answer a very important question I've been asking? Do you think it's a White Gas (Coleman Fuel) Burner, or Kerosene? Also, any idea what the detachable Canister us all about?

    @Stovost could the detachable canister be a spirit "pan" for priming?

    I'm all ears! Please explain your line of thinking! I haven't a clue, as to the fuel type, or operation of this amazing Stove!

    It looks like it could be a Wok stove due to the inclined pot supports; I think the fuel of choice would be Coleman fuel due to design of the generator. Perhaps one fills the canister with alcohol, prime, pump, and slowly open the valve. Obviously I'm guessing.

    My guess is White Gas aka Coleman fuel.
    In case I am wrong please have the fire department on speed dial.

    Thanks for your help. White gas is certainly being considered, not seeing a "preheat" area, thus a Kerosene burner. Still stumped by that odd Canister! Any guesses?
