    Got this one only for the shipping cost, will fettle it soon.
    Next to my first 199, which I got for 20€ ;)

    Ciao, Bastian

    Roughly cleaned, I will keep it in that state. It Burns very good on kerosene.

    @Sternenlicht ,

    Bastian, Excellent gift, and those 199's are champs, for sure!! They DO run very well on Kero, and with the proper setup, Meths, or Coleman Fuel, too!! For Meths, they really need a different restrictor than what Optimus supplied. I've found that the Meths restrictor from the Homestrand stoves using the M1915 burners, are the best for Meths in the 199!! FYI. Thanks for sharing your bounty, and well done! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    @The Warrior, while you're waiting for your own you may find you have enough time to construct something along the lines that HONDA has recently completed. :content:

    If only I were that talented, haha. I missed a 199 by mere seconds not that long ago, BIN, for $110 shipped. As soon as I saw it, I hit the BIN button, but someone else was faster at the draw. Doh!

    You will get one, but do not look for them. I never searched them, I just found them by random ;)

    Ciao, Bastian

    I really don't seek them out per se, just keep it in mind, with my hit list of stoves, in case it pops up, haha.
