    Greetings, All,

    Some years back, I scored an old SVEA #14, with it's #801 burner. I was overjoyed to have gotten this one, even though it's missing it's proprietary "Baby Butt" flame spreader. I've been on the hunt, ever since I got the stove.

    Here are a few shot of the high points of this stove:

    Can't fire it up until I find a "Baby Butt" flame spreader. Does anyone have one they wish to sell, or trade? Please, please, please!?!?!! [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o<

    Thanks for checking this old #14 out, Friends! She's a beauty, and will be even more beautiful once I get a proper flame spreader, and fettle it just a tad!! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Morning, All,

    By the way, this stove model, and burner, is identical to the first stove that was used in ascending Denali (Mt. McKinley). Mine dates to around 1910, and so did the stove that was carried up Denali. I saw it in a museum in Fairbanks, and have lusted after one like it, until getting this one! Here's the one from the Denali climb:

    Neat stuff, me thinks! Now, I gotta find a "Baby Butt" burner cap for my #14! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
