    Well, sometimes you need to practice on something. That is what I think, someone is learning how to drill and they test it on a silent cap for an Sievert 100 stove

    So, my question is, is it just to silversolder and cover it? Or are there any parts in the inner part that needs to be there aswell?

    Thank you tretrop for another good question, a learning opportunity.
    For me, i was not able to find answer (Svea 100 library & gallery examples are sparse. i also checked Optimus then Primus as well).
    You will find original Primus 100 silent caps (2 piece) showing
    there are not ... parts in the inner part that needs to be there as well .

    With that in mind, i ask you the question as you look closely again:
    Does it look like *something was attached below?
    *a tube presumably.
    As i look closely at yours i thought not and for original Primus 100 silent nothing addl. was needed.

    Hi @janders It would be great if you would add some detailed photos of your Svea No.100 stove to the Reference Section, These Sv.100 stoves are not common.
    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    @tretrop
    1. pardon slight drift.
    @presscall, the Svea 100 just posted is fantastic :thumbup::thumbup:, thank you. You estimate it to 1930s. She is a rare thing of beauty, I am green with envy.
    ---------------

    Svea 100 detail is scarce (all the more thanks for John's gallery reference post).
    The Svea 100 silent option is even more scarce.
    Yet, correct me if i'm wrong, CCS collaborative efforts have what appears to be 4 documented iterations of the rare Svea 100 silent option?
    I think i'm right and amazed by that (for such a rare piece).
    > knight84's 1 piece
    > tretrop & janders 1 piece (?) ... and what i only just noticed it may be 1 piece? but top cap is formed separately from the side (that upper seam is visible on both) which is how it differs from knight84's
    > kerophile's (cap has different profile)
    > john's 1930s 2 piece

    If i live so long i'm sure to learn more about the early/earliest Svea 100 and dream about silent option, may have to make one.
    my thanks to all

    What stove use the caps
