This is different from the later version, which was changed to a hexagonal nut. 9C88A42A-6931-461E-83AE-03065993B903.jpeg 896E3A9F-083F-4E84-8D5F-263E2D4CCC9C.jpeg BC8BA7F2-6768-45D9-A1FF-4C7D15B95AD9.jpeg Beautiful blue flowers AF468CD5-F298-491A-B747-5639F4F5DA7D.jpeg Two parallel pan supports 61A7152F-960B-49B8-A2A6-8308B8BA3549.jpeg 9063 is my favorite boxed stove, it is as compact as optimus 8, but 9063 comes with an air pump, it is a powerful baby stove

    That’s a very attractive feature distinguishing it from the later models.

    Outstanding example.

    Your presentation is fantastic, and the stove is great , being an early one even the better. It has some features that newer ones don’t have.
    Well done,
    Cheers

    @anfeng ,

    Many thanks for sharing this very early Baby Enders with us! Up until I saw yours, I thought the earliest version was the one with the horrid, unstable wire pot support. Looks like the original model is much more stable than the one I mean. I wonder why Enders left what appears to be a better, and far more stable system, as your stove possesses, and went to the unstable one? I like yours MUCH better!!

    You are right, in that the Enders Baby, properly maintained, can be a VERY powerful little stove. Here's a shot of one of mine, after I fettled it into action.

    And, with one of BernieDawg's handmade special caps for the Enders Baby:

    As much as I love the Optimus 8R, a good Enders Baby can smoke it! Thanks for sharing yours, and for the excellent presentation!! Well done! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Hi DOC I am glad that you also like Enders Baby. Your flame photos are very beautiful, especially the silent cap made by Bernie Dawg. The early two parallel pot holders can be firmly stuck inside the lid when they are stored. They will not touch anything during the trip. This is my favorite. Thanks best regards
