    A bootyful SVEA 105. This is one gorgeous stove. Too pretty to be a user, although it runs good (a little rich maybe, might need a new jet) but it's been retired to live as a shelf queen or should I say in this case a shelf "king"-of-stoves ;) :lol:

    Thanks Wim and Kerophile,

    I agree completely George :clap: Stunning graphics
    and almost every part of the stove is engraved in some way including the pot legs, which are stamped
    "Made in Sweden"

    Here's some pics of the burner and caps

    And the icing on the cake is the stove performs just as well as it looks

    Ah, Svea 105. Such a pretty stove. Mine had a flame like that when I first fired it up. The metal parts glowed. Now after a gallon of K-1 has been through it, the parts don't glow so much. The heat output seems fine to me. Is the glow indicative of a rich burn? The 105 is my first kero burner and I simply don't know what the proper flame looks like. :D/ NH....

    Hi, I would say the flame pattern of Tom's Svea 105 was about perfect.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Thanks Kerophile,

    Norham, I really did not know how to answer your question out of pure ignorance - I made the comment about the rich flame because it was a tad yellow, just a tad mind you , but it was just a guess. I'll have to plead ignorance again about the caps - there are many here who have forgotten more about these stoves than I'll ever know so it's always best heed their venerable advice and comments IMHO :)
