    Yesterday in my mailbox I got this lovely Juwel 15 stove.
    Usually I am not all that interested in just another 2 pint brass tripod stove, but I find this one very interesting.

    All seems similar to the Primus stoves, but everything is slightly different.
    The burner seems to consist of one extra part.
    It has no riser tube.

    The thread on the burner is different to any other stove that I have seen (it is slightly conical?)
    The pump is huge! (I put a normal pump thing on the picture to compare)
    The filler cap is also much larger, but the opening is not.

    The pot holder is also different, and I actually like the design of the potholder ring very much. It seems very solid, even though one of the 3 legs is broken.

    Does anyone have any info about this stove? I assume it runs on kero, cause I see no real technical difference to the Primus stoves, and it doesn't have a pressure valve or anything.

    I have to fix a couple of things before I can try to light it. The rubber of the filler cap is hardened, and the pump leather is dry, also one of the legs is almost broken off. And I couldn't check the NRV but I guess that one needs some attention as well. I do sure hope I can still use that pump leather. I doubt Sefa has them this big ;) so if it is no good, I think I have to cannibalize a bicycle pump or something.

    Hi Jan-Willem
    Wow! :shock: That's very nice! :clap: I look forward to the flame from that very interesting burner. 8)

    The Reference Library here at CCS has this French pamphlet on what I believe may be your stove:

    Good luck on your fettling. I hope it all goes well and we'll see this one afire soon.

    Best,
    Gary

    I saw that pamphlet. it is similar but not the same. The pamphlet speaks that it is an improved model. So maybe I have the old one or something.
    The stove on the has only one inlet tube on the burner. It is asymmetrical, mine is symmetrical.
    However I do believe all the parts are original and are supposed to be on this stove. If only because I have nothing else that fits ;)

    Bad thing:
    The NRV leaks.

    Good thing:
    because of the size of the pump tube it is not that difficult to remove. Being able to use a proper tool helps a lot!

    Bad thing:
    This NRV is entirely different to the normal primus ones.
    it seems somehow in reverse. The rubber part has the hole in it, and it has a closing gizmo that is spring loaded.



    Also the rubber bit is in a weird shape. but I guess if I replace it a flat surface (with a hole in it, should work just fine..

    Puts me in mind of the NRV in a military Enders 9061 - on the far left of this photo ...

    Sefa does have large diameter pump leathers as he makes ones for the Tilley Floodlight.
