    Tiday I received a Favorit Sportkocher. It is in the size of a Phoebus 725. The manufacturing date is unknown, but I would guess sometime in the 50ies or 60ies.
    One original leg is missing, it was replaced by a special nail which was forged into the right shape. Similar nails I found while restoring my house from 1936 under my wooden flor and the stairs. They usually fix wooden parts in the wall.

    I did not clean or light the stove. I will do that soon.

    Ciao, Bastian

    Gasoline [white], Benzin, Petrol burner?
    Stand is reminiscent of the Primus 71E.
    Very unique.

    @SveaSizzler: you're right, there are some similarities

    Ciao, Bastian

    It does look like they admired the Primus 71E design so much, they decided to make some for their very own, but more economically.
    The stove with the black tank, is that an Optimus Eagle? The upper works are post-Optimus takeover 8R, 123R type. Does it have a steel tank?
    Coincidentally a similar diameter to your Favorit. With a wider base, the Sportkucher may be more stable than the Primus.
    Nice collection.

    I cleaned it roughly and replaced the wick. It needs some extra preheating and needs some time to reach full power. Maybe the wick is still not perfect.

    But the power and also the simmering is good!
