    Hi iani very nice impressive monster stove. I notice in the pic, if I am not mistaken, it has one of those plastic/rubber pump buckets.
    I have had a few Monitor stoves and blowlamps, that have had one of them plastic/rubber pump buckets fitted, I have swapped them for a leather bucket, as they are OK when in good condition but they do get brittle with age and they don't make a good seal, and nothing can be done to rejuvenate them, unlike leather where a soak in oil normally does the trick.
    I would love to hear the sound of this monster running, it could be used to power a hot air balloon. lol

    Hello Brian

    I saw no point in changing the old plastic pump cup. I would rather keep Sefa's quality leathers for a deserving cause.

    It bit of a fallacy that these stoves make a lot of noise. Just pure hype really.

    A good Op 111 makes more noise than this thing.
