    Arrived yesterday with all parts. Year unknown. Quick clean and rinse out, new jet, burner washers and filler cap seal. Outer cap had some 'gunked up' holes, so ran a 1mm drill through each. Pump leather as received, but added some of drips of oil to pump tube for good measure. Tested out doors in slight to no breeze - works brilliantly!

    Features 'raised' lettering, rather than 'depressed'.

    Nothing depressing about the outcome. Great job.

    Hi George and John,

    I am very humbled by your kind words, thank you.

    Of course, I have seen the work under taken by both of you and know my effort is not a patch on what either of you two can achieve. It could probably do with a bit more buffing up, but that means losing a bit more metal, so I'll leave it as it is. I think it certainly looks better than when I received it!

    I saw the other stoves in the library and I also looked at the adverts, instructions etc. as I was hoping to find the model number. I came across these lighting instructions and this box label and a couple of other bits in the libraries and am guessing that mine could be a 230(?), fitted with a silent burner (the manufacturer offers the choice of silent or roarer for the same stove body). Information about Parasene stoves seems a bit thin on the ground. Any thoughts on model no. would be welcome, as it would be 'nice to know'.

    Many thanks once again

    Baz

    Heck, Baz, I'm blushing. Maybe you've only relatively recently turned your hand to stove fettling but you've obviously got the skills.

    The information you've located on the Parasene exceeds my knowledge of the model by a wide margin! Ironic, really, that information on our home-grown products can be more sparse than those from the Swedish manufacturers. Something to do with comparative volume of production and extent of export markets maybe.
