    I Picked this up the other day total length of the stove is 6" or 150mm.
    The spare burner heads have different shapes to the one on the stove any Ideas on the reason for this purely flame pattern?

    Unfortunately the unfired one is bent! :shock:

    Nothing at all! The burner heads in the cork really give me the idea this was a real user and well cared for in its day. I have a couple of the standard ones one which I really use. Seeing a Borde beat up and rusty like an old Primus or Coleman is different from what I expect.

    Very nice find.

    Unfortunately on further inspection both of the spare regulator burners are damaged one as said earlier is bent and the other has the very fine point missing appearing to have been snapped off. If you look very closely you can see this in the pictures above.

    Nice find! Could you do me a favor an photocopy or scan/photograph the leaflet? I own a borde by myself and i am really interested in the "History" of this stove. As far as i know the Borde-People made some nice patents for some nice stuff, but to see a leaflet with a kind of product-range or advertising is new to me :-)

    Thanks in advance!
