    Hi, I have been working on an Op.111T which I acquired recently. This stove appears to be have been little-used but had suffered severe under-burn at some stage, which damaged (by melting) the spigot inside the silent burner, resulting is a slightly irregular flame pattern.
    I exchanged the faulty silent burner for a roarer, which I had in my spares box, and have had the stove running very well.

    Here are some photos of the fettled stove which I took today:

    I have done nothing to the case except clean and wax it.
    I added the spirit flask and "Nick design" inner tray.
    The spanner for the jet and packing gland, and new windshield are Base Camp replacements.
    It is interesting that the Tank SRV has a square section socket, as seen on some Military Op.111s.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Hi, this is a repurposed drinking alcohol hip-flask.
    It is a 2.5 oz stainless steel item, made in China.
    Similar flasks are available from ebay.
    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Hi, Today I finally got around to refitting the correct silent burner to this Op.111T stove. Here are some images:

    Hi, I used this Op.111/T operating on Kerosene, for brewing up my tea this morning, so took a few images:

    Nice stove and very quiet....after the Op.111 Roarer.
