    I've had the stove a few years and only tried it out today for the first time.
    The only way of getting a good blue flame all round was by keeping the pricker inserted but I couldn't hold the pricker in the right position and take a picture at the same time.
    If it wasn't for the forum I would have not known how to peen it at all.
    This is the first time I have peened a lipstick burner.
    Thank you CCS. 20211123_160453.jpg 20211123_160418.jpg 20211123_182023.jpg 20211123_182352.jpg

    Nice job, I keep a few drill bits to clear out the hole, not always a perfect job. I'm going thru my 96's for something to do and have redone a few. Some are a royal PITA.

    Hi @Andrew you are spot-on with your peening and have a lovely blue flame!
    Great work.
    Best Regards,

    I've done one similar, but burst out one area pushing out the area, successfully silver brazed the crack. So it can be done.

    It was an easy fix with only straightening it out. No peening necessary. 20211124_171351.jpg 20211124_165149.jpg
