    my stove was made between 1955 and 1962 maybe, it has a beutiful chromed tank.
    I'm really enjoy cooking coffee with my siphon pot.
    yesterday , i try cooked siphon coffee pot with my optimus 8R. it's very nice .
    only 8min the water is boiling and the stove's height is just perfect fit with the siphon pot, the fire size is perfect too:lol::lol::lol:

    by the way the optimus 8R is very rare in China, as far as I know this old one is only one in my friends.

    G'day Alex, The coffee pot looks like it belongs in a science lab rather than a kitchen. I like it :D. A good looking pot on a good stove :thumbup:

    The principle behind these can be found here.
    Their example looks even more like it belongs in a lab.

    regards

    Old design still made.
    Cory, Silex, etc.
    Now Bodum, Yama, etc.

    A great cup of coffee. I have an old Cory, still in the box. A Sunbeam electric stainless steel model, too. The trick is getting the water to stay on top 4-6 minutes, and not be too hot, before you let it come back down. Sometimes they clog, and can implode the bottom container. You then need to heat it up again, then let it down.

    Good show of use.

    I had to laugh. I have a large collection of Cona coffee makers and probably 15 or more different 8/8R variants and yet I've never thought of combining them. Hats off to you,
