I am not sure I even am collecting stoves. At least I do not know when I started. What I know is that I got my first stove I didn't need, back in 2002. Maybe that was a start in something of a collection. This is a really difficult question, because what is _one_ stove. I have many stoves that is not complete, so some parts are floating around. Even if one incomplete stove is 0,8 stoves, two stoves with the same incompleteness doesn't count up as 1.6 stoves, not even up to 1.0 stove. I have some 0.8 and 0.9 stoves. I can use many of these, but not at the same time, because I can use parts from other stoves.
