    After some routine maintenance I have the 11 up and running. Interesting evolutionary thread and dead quiet. I'll use this one! P9260499.jpeg P9260494.jpeg

    Seems like a good little stove. Boils quickly.

    They are great. I have a heck of a time getting the stove in the ws, with the support correct.

    One would suppose that the correct setup is to have the open side of the ws between the 2 moveable legs, opposite the fixed leg. However, the 9001 bnr in my PMX bodge-up tilts forward a little if I set it up like that. It sits a lot better if I put the open side between the fixed leg and a moveable leg.
    I find it easiest to fit the ws in the legs, then slide the burner down into the ws.
    YMMV.

    Thank you. My ws was bent a little by a PO, so a screech when pushing the stove in.
