    Unexpected gift - Burmos?

    thread I presented the Burmos 21 stove that I got as an unexpected gift. It cleaned up ok and held pressure with some new seals, but the burner was cracked and leaking. Now I have brazed the cracks in the burner with silver solder, and the Burmos is back!

    My soldering skills are probably a little, ehmm, industrial?

    But I did manage to seal the cracks

    A good preheat!

    Just the pilot light lingering for ten seconds

    Burning reasonably blue and hot

    The burner is dry now, no flames where there should not be flames and no kerosene leaking. The stove is easy to light and can be pumped to good pressure, ready for some action!

    Kind regards
