    Just been refilling Camping Gaz cartridges, so while I had the burner detached I decided to try a roarer burner on the existing nipple. I had a spare 123R bell lying around, so I dropped it over the gaz nipple (the thread is slightly too large).

    Surprise! It worked!

    Vice versa it also works, a few years ago I put the camping gaz burner on my primus varifuel to reach a silent flame.

    No reason why it wouldn't I suppose.

    A handy hint to beat draughty conditions on a picnic.

    I agree, but there are very few Camping Gaz roarers, the Ranch being a notable exception.

    Yes, it makes the gas burner a little less sensitive against wind. The flame looks nice!
    The camping gaz burner attached to the varifuel didn't work well. The flame was silent, but simmering was no fun and it was a little sooty. Although I enlarged the ventilation holes in the burner tube.

    I suppose I'm going to have to try a 96 bell in the Bleuet now @Twoberth. :)
