    Dear friends, thank you for accepting me in this prestigious forum. Here , my first publication with this beauty that I have wanted for many years.
    Optimus 111, I intend to do a general cleaning and then turn it on although, as can be seen in the photos, it has missing parts:
    Jet
    Claning needle
    Both steel supports
    Windscreen (I don't know if this model originally came with it)

    I would like to know the approximate date of manufacture according to its characteristics.
    I would also like to know what the measurements of the cooking supports are to try to make them (I have some experience solving problems with paraffin pressure lamps). And of course i need the injector and the needle, do you have any link for bought them?.
    Thank you very much again for reading my long lines with a somewhat rustic English.
    Cheers from Chile, Southamerica

    @kerophile Thank you for your welcome, I appreciate it very much.
    I will try to buy the jet and the needle, I do not know if I also buy the burner adjustment kit, visually it is fine, but maybe there is something I do not know about its internal wear.
    Could you share some measurements of the cooking supports? Maybe there is a tutorial to make them, I think a good wire could work, but I would like to know the diameter, the length and width.
    Maybe someone can have these cooking supports and the windshield available, used of course. They seem to be common parts with other cookers.

    Cheers

    Cesar

Here are some photos and dimensions of pan support from a 1950s embossed Op.111:

    Graph paper is mm x mm

    Support wire diameter in 4.5 mm diameter.

    Flat section is 3.8 mm x 4.5 mm diameter and the flat surface is on the outside surface

    Material in Ni-plated mild steel and quite stiff.

    Tutorial on making replacement stove legs:

    Making Replacement Legs

    Most important part is to support the steel rod in a tube when making the bend.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.
