    Hi, it occurred to me that we need more photos of stoves on CCS, preferably of the paraffin-powered variety.

    Here are some images of a Svea No.5 that I was working on yesterday.

    This is a standard 2-pint paraffin stove, fitted with a silent burner, so perhaps better suited for a domestic or base camp situation. I renewed the seals and washers, filled up with domestic heating oil, and soon had her operating well:

    You can generally identify a Svea stove by the characteristic shape of the feet.

    I thought this was a nice photo of the flame pattern.

    The stove is currently fitted with a generic pan-holder.

    I pumped the stove to high pressure and you can see how far the flamelets have been "pushed-off" the burner.


    These classic Swedish 2-pint stoves probably account for the bulk of pressure stove production. They are powerful, attractive, and economical in use. I often think they deserve more attention than they get from collectors.


    Best Regards,
