    My first stove on spiritburner.com. an optimus 8 scored to day. Fired right up first try with the fuel that was on it. It does not burn that well so need som internal cleaning i think. But i like it :)
    Does any one know how old it is? From what i understand it should be older than 1947?

    I like the square-edged case of the #8. Wish they had continued that with the 8Rs, etc.

    Thanks,
