    Helium detects leaks, 25 Mpa , 250 bar pressure, and the satellite's lithium battery casing does the tank,I like Titanium material,made in koala
    Impossible cracks the tank as old Optimus brass tank,except use Nitroglyceal dynamic explosives instead of kerosene.

    No.9 replica(s) sounds great! I'll be sure to follow and hoping for the best here.

    You have success working with Titanium?

    All, Note 1. No.111 roarer: tank is 4 1/2 x 3", rearrange it's parts maybe get to something similar function/design as a No.9 and cannibalize only 1 stove.

    re: If any master have original Optimus No.9 and measurements
    Looks like 5 1/2 x 3 1/2" (140 x 90mm). Thank Ben. source

    re: The burner is No.298C
    No.9's burner is 209C which may not matter as it may be used only on a 9?
    (298C is a filler cap)

    re: I think I will cut a Optimus campingo No.1 or Optimus No.11
    OMG stick in the eye, fingernails on chalkboard... say it aint so!
    Please see note 1. above.

    I know I am many bad news but i DO want you to see replica (from 111?), i keep the faith.
    Good luck.

    Thank you,sir,I have to cancel my idea,cut a stove is not a good way.
    Yes you are right,the Optimus No.9 is use 209C,not a tank lid,298C,you are professional.

    Tantra,
    re "... I have to cancel my idea, cut a stove is not a good way"
    say it aint so.
    It was good idea but if this is the end, ok.

    FYI If you pay shipping i can send you one donor 111 tank w/lid & pump asm. I can send a 2nd tank along too "*For a Few Dollars More" *an American movie, i try to joke but 2 tanks is possible.
    Send message if you want this.

    all, have a laugh on me. above Tantra said "...you are professional"
    I laughed out loud. This is a hobby !
    It is cool for China to chime in to our global hobby (interactive online huge plus).

    For any tidbits shared (try to be on-topic & helpful), credit the ongoing Ross & friends dynamic organization of the site: the online stovie resource and
    all
    of our membership: passed RIP, past & present. I am just one and newbie relatively speaking.

    I do research (which is not for everybody) and we know I have learned from you re the No.8 (thanks again).

    You da man!
