    Last Friday I got an Enders kerosine stove as a present.

    On CCS, I can only find documentation on Enders (9)100, but this stove has other characteristics: The wing with the name Enders on the filling plug and the legs that are not demountable are definitely different.

    Somebody who knows more about Enders ?

    Hi LvP, Welcome to CCS..or at least to Posting.

    You have a nice fixed-leg kerosene stove made by Enders. I have not seen one like this before, but I think that there are not many Enders Kerosene stoves in the UK.
    Your stove does not appear in this 1959 Enders catalogue;

    You will have seen my recent posting on the Enders 100:

    The "Palm Tree" logo on your stove looks good.

    You will need to obtain a pair of burner caps for the silent burner before you can operate the stove. Generic caps should fit I think.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile

    Hello Kerophile,

    thanks for your advice about the burner caps for the silent burner. I also need an leather part for the kerosine pump. So I have to look around.

    For more information I have send a request for information about the history of their products to Enderscolsman in Ludenscheid, Germany
    See: http://www.enderscolsman.de/enders/ueber_uns.html. It is the actuale name of the company that was founded in 1883 as Enders. I hope they will give a reaction.

    Best regards,

    LvP

    Hi LvP, You can obtain very good leather pump washers from Sefa, a fellow CCS member. See;


    Base Camp, one of the CCS sponsors can supply silent burner caps:
    LINK 2

    see item 8737 for the outer cap.

    Good Luck with the fettling of your Enders stove.
    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Thanks again Kerophile for your suggestions.

    In the afternoon I got very nice information from the Enders Colsman company in Werdoehl Germany. The friendly sales-employee has send me some scans from old catalogues (1982/82 and 1974) and a sales list which is from the 1950's or early 60's I suggest.

    With this sales list I could identify my stove as an Enders Kocher No.5.

    I have asked this friendly woman if I can get approval to publish the printed information on this website, but did not get an answer yet.
    I hope she will agree. In that case we get a lot more information about the Enders stoves available for everyone.

    best regards

    Hi LvP, Great! Thank you for sharing these documents. It is very good of the Enderscolsman Co. to allow publication.

    I am now waiting patiently to see photos of your fettled Enders No.5 stove.
    Best Regards,
