    Just got my hands on this old Svea 11 last week. Changed seals, washer and pump cup from “The Fettlebox” (good quality!)
    Cleaned the jet, and fired it up. Runs like a new stove - what a roar!
    On this one I really like, that it hasn’t been polished to oblivion. All text is crisp.

    Excellent example @Harder D. Soerensen - and not just the condition and originality, but another quite early example too. The condition and functionality speak for themselves. And the correct Svea cast iron trivet are always sought after. Meanwhile the key pointer to an early date is the word 'PATENT' in the center of the tank bottom marking. (See the notes and links I added to this slightly rougher example post of yours:thumbup:)
    A great find:D

    Dead right @Tony Press - can't believe how much effort IT companies put in to ever more devious and malicious ways of turning perfectly good text into utter gibberish, bane of my life - why?:rage:

    Might your phone be an iPhone?
    They seems to be a little more problematic than other competitors products.
    I have an iPhone and I always have to adjust something it think is wrong.
    Very irritating.

    It is also pity that you can not edit the text here later on, only about 15 minutes after you post the message.

    @cmb56 hi Michael, according to the subscription information, registered users get ten minutes to make edits, subscribers get 30. That said I frequently see mistakes in my posts several days later. Part of my problem is using an iPad which has the same problem with predictive text.

    Regards
    John

    Nice old Svea with those cool graphics.
    The auto correct option can be removed under settings.

    I’m the proud new owner/caretaker of this Svea (or its cousin :content: ). Just gently hand-polished to remove the oxidation.

    Thanks Harder.
