    Is the Trangia T28mini pot's base dimple stamped separately, ie is pot shape stamped then base dimple created by a second stamp?.....

    I ask because if that was true it would/might allow the pot former/mould? to be used to stamp a lighter UL pot with no dimple to be stamped for use as a third nesting pot in a 27 set, without any expensive new formers. The lack of a base dimple would indicate its not for the T28 which Trangia must think needs thicker alu.

    You should apply for employment at Trangia.

    I thought perhaps the question might be answered in a video of the trangia factory someone might have come across, and could link to?

    It's a family business isn't it? Run from the shed in the back yard? I assumed "job application" and "marriage proposal" would be the same? Unsure if there are any opportunities...

    My comment was "tongue in cheek" not serious.

    Are they near a railway, as that map seems to show?

    Yes,
    both the E14 highway between Sundsvall and Trondheim (in Norway) and
    the main railway between the junction in Ånge (in Sweden) and Trondheim
    passes by Trångsviken Village.

    The railway goes down by the lake shore and the highway on the other side of the village,
    just 'inside' of the Trangia factory complex. The Trangia Museum is situated in the old
    original fabrication facility on the village side of the highway. All of it easily accessible...
