    This is the stainless "marine" version of the Punker domestic stove; note the top rails to keep pots from sliding off, and the straps under the legs to secure to a counter surface. All stainless except the chrome-over-brass tank and brass burners, this is a great cooking stove with good flame control. It also came in a single-burner
    version.
    I use this for general household chores, power outages, and cooking on the picnic table in the yard. It is surprisingly light, much more so than the pictures would have you believe.

    I realize this thread is ancient, but I have a stove just like this but never knew what it was! At least I now know it's fired by alcohol. Now, I just have to figure out how to light it! :)

    Hi rut, if this Punker follows the same lines as my single burner it is very simple to operate. Make sure there's alcohol in the fount, open tap so alcohol fills the pre-heater tray under the burner, apply (burning :roll: ;) )match or lighter and when alcohol is almost burned out, re-open tap and start cooking! The beauty of these is the simplicity of the design.

    Oh, and welcome on board! O:)

    Best regards,

    Wim

    Hi Wim,

    Thanks so much for the words of advise. I've had this thing for years but never knew what it was or where it was made. I will follow your instructions and let you know if it works or not.

    Thanks again,

    Phil (RUT)

    P.S. Should I assume fuel delivery is via "gravity"?

    Hi Phil, yup, these are gravity fed! No hassle with pumps etc. O:)

    1348520782-Stove.JPG Hi Wim,

    Well, I was able to get it fired up, but the only alcohol I had available was 70%. So, it didn't burn too well and didn't want to stay running, but at least I know it works and how to light it. I'll pick up some denatured alcohol or the like and give it another try.

    Thanks much for your help!
