    Got my Kampkook in today, plus this one, the Meva 444. My first gravity feed stove. Taking awful photos today. Hand is shaky for whatever reason.

    Meva 444:

    Looks to be a February 1959 model:

    Priming. Note to self. Make sure the knob is in the off position before filling with alcohol:

    Blurry, but you get the idea:

    Yet another bad photo. I had no idea these stoves were this small:

    Although it seems to seal well, I'm sure it needs a new seal. Also, a new wick.

    Thanks for looking.

    Nice one, I really like these stoves for making coffee indoors.
    But I don't have a Meva, only Turm stoves.

    But mine doesn't have a wick.

    Ciao, Bastian

    Seven minutes to boil a cup of water. And that's just a slight boil. I think if I tweak it a bit, it should do better than that:

    The wife was away all day yesterday when my stoves came in the mail. I had a feeling she would want this one, and she did, haha. Not gonna happen. :mrgreen:
