    Sold all my petrol stoves off, thinking - I like Paraffin.
    Couldn't resist this sorry looking 8R. Especially when it was listed slightly wrong and it was cheap.

    Citric acid bath of brass, etc.
    Electrolysis and rub down of case.
    Etch primer and then 2 top coats to match my 111T.
    New washers and burner clean.
    New foil decal.

    That's very pleasing to the eye. Not so pretty and shiny as to avoid honest use.
    Nice job.
