    Good to know. Those measurements correspond nicely with what is found for gasoline/petrol vs kerosene jets on several other stoves.

    Today I could continue my measurements. I used our digital-microscope with back- and top-light and x-y-backlight-table.

    It seems that we have 2 sizes of holes in the nozzle:

    a) for kerosene: 0,28 mm (with corresponding 0,23 mm wire)
    b) for gasoline: 0,36 mm (with corresponding 0,30 mm wire)

    (Please see pictures below)

    Nicely done :thumbup:
    The sizes are as expected for comparable kerosene and benzine fuels :content:
