    Today I dig out this stove from my barn. After a few minutes I was convinced that it is a hopeless case.
    All nuts are fixed by rust, pump missing and the generator nearly as rotten as the bench the stove is standing on.
    The only marking is L.B on the pressure meter. It might be made by Loius Bouyssou. I found the name in this post. But the Ekinox is in a fairly better condition than mine.
    So what to do with such item? Maybe use it as a donator for parts, if anyone happens to have one similar with missing parts. It is for free, only expense is the shipping.
    The tank looks sound and the legs and the trivet ok.

    I’ll send you a ‘conversation’ Bo to make arrangements to take up your offer. It looks like the sort of project I enjoy.

    Regards,

    If I was able to make it run it would be a great competitor for this stove of the month for sure.
    Maybe John will capture it once again.
