    Hi,

    This was delivered this morning so I decided fire it up.
    The tank lid packing and pump leather were OK and the tank held pressure,all the parts were in the well made steel case apart from the spanner and spirit can.
    I think the markings on the tank are as good if not better than some of the better known brands.

    I gave the jet a clean out and the burner a rub over with a fine brass brush their seemed to be a lot of carbon built up and a round the loops of the burner,was this a sign of a problem?
    After a good prime I pumped some air in to the tank and Wow :shock: the stove went like a rocket,within seconds the flame ring and leg tips were starting to glow.

    I am very impressed with the power that the stove throws out and the high standard of the brass work.
    The case is strong and well made.

    So all in all a great 1 pint stove well worth looking out for, and the fact that I only paid £12.00 for it makes it even better :) :) :)

    Cheers
    Tim

    Hi Tim, these Shinabros are really good stoves, but please remember that the burner-to-upstand joint is left-hand threaded!!!!! If you need to remove the burner for any reason you need to be very careful.

    The tank-to-upstand joint has a conventional right-hand thread.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Hi Tim,

    Nice stove. Just in case you've not seen previous posts on these stoves be aware that the if you want to dismantle the burner from the riser for heat/quench, or changing heat proof washers etc, this connection has a left hand thread. I.E. If you try to unscrew this in the normal manner you'll end up tightening it up, not loosening it.

    Personally I've left a note taped in the case of mine to remind me of this fact.

    Edit:- Kerophile types faster than me

    Cheers, Graham. :lol:

    Just got one of these and did almost terminally damage the riser tube but just got away with it!

    A very good bargain at £7!!! looking forward to cleaning it to see the engraving etc.

    I have one too, the threads in the riser and on top of the tank are stripped. It came to me that way. I guess this left handed thread has been the end of many of these stoves.
