    :shock: This stove sure had a hard life! Do you plan on restoring it?

    Best regards,

    The stove is in poor condition, but it is also very rare.
    It would be great if you can get it running.

    @Tomih

    I was going to make a joke about the stove being “up and running soon”, but I really appreciate the fact that you’ve posted it ‘as found’ because of its rarity.

    Best regards

    I would say this one is out of rescue.
    But a very rare one with a stunning patina.
    You will probably never find the missing parts with original name, if the cap and air release screw were marked with it.
    So my advice is to keep it just this way, it is a document showing a stoves hard life.

    Is there a "Petro-Keitin" text(kohokirjaimilla) on tank?

    I have seen quite a few Petro-Valo silent burners on other brand stoves. I guess that they made burners for spare part markets. Roarer burner is not so common. I just seen one roarer which was on Primus stove (which I eventually bought...). Petro-Valo made kerosene stoves are quite difficult to find. Their alcohol stove "Näpsä" had surfaced few times. Maybe they made kerosene stoves just small amount.

    I dont know. Patina is so thick, that there is no text visible anywhere on tank.

    Text should start little bit right from the pump. Letters are capital letters, they are rised from surface and line width in them is about 1,5mm .

    I wonder whether there could be some sort of link between this manufacturer and this older 'Petropyr' mystery stove?
