    Evening all,
    I just purchased a Sievert 35 stove that has the tall riser, so I am assuming that it was originally setup as a heater. Its missing lots of parts and should be here in the next week or so, but I'd like to get a idea if the reflector or heater device is available for it. I have a Tilley R55 heater reflector that I could probably make into a working reflector, but that brass heat device that is supported over the burner is going to be a tough one to locate here in the USA. I could make the rod that sits in the leg and make it loop out over the burner if a brass heater cup is available. I'd imagine I could silver solder the leg to the brass heater cover? Any advice or source for the parts would be much appreciated. I remember seeing the heater cups for the stoves somewhere for sale in the UK, but can't remember where? Thanks again!!!

    Dan

    Evening, Dan,

    Sounds like a great find, my friend!! Does it look anything like a Primus 110? If so, I can take plenty of photos of my own setup, with it's reflector. Like you, I had to pieced the complete system together, and thanks to plenty of help by exeter_yak, and another friend in The Netherlands, who wishes to remain nameless, I finally got my complete 110 up and running like a champ, with all it's parts in place!!

    If your SVEA is something akin to the 110, I can make measurements, take photos, of if you need it, loan you some parts to see if they work with your SVEA. I've seen those brass heater bells on a Korean site, and they might be able to help you get a nice looking replacement bell. Check this out:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Firebowl-He...139?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3387b5e5f3

    That seller offers another type, like one I saw on a very early Optimus stove/heater, too, and like this one, it appears very well done, and classy!

    Let me know if I can help you in any of the ways mentioned, and I'll happily do so. Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Mark

    Thanks much gentlemen and thats just what I was after. I also searched the Parra site last evening as I also remembered seeing them there too, but they do not appear to be listed now. I still sent the owner a email just to be safe as I need some inner and outer caps also. I may be jumping the gun a little since I have not even received it yet, but I am pretty excited to get it and work on it. Its been quite a while since I have been into the stoves, so this might get me back thinking like a stovie :D/ . I'm also hoping maybe the owner might know of a place I could find the correct reflector for this as I think the Tilley R55 reflector will be too large. Have a good afternoon and thanks again Gentlemen!!!

    Dan congratulations on your new purchase.
    I have one like it and mine also was a project finding all the parts.

    These were the two stoves I bought.
    The dish came with a Prince 105 but the riser was too short

    This Svea 35 was without any parts but it was just what I was looking for.

    I made the dome support and the legs and also made a tank shield from a spaghetti pot.

    Let me know if you need any measurements

    Thanks Doug!!! I sure appreciate it and when the stove arrives, I'll be in touch to get a few dimensions. I think the hardest item that I'll nee dot find will be the back reflector. I have one from a Tilley heater, but it'll be too large and will look silly. Hopefully someone might have a smaller one available that they'd consider selling. Have a good evening and thanks again!!!

    As mentioned above it calls for a 12 inch reflector.Dan let me know when you need any measurements. I will keep my eyes open for the reflector your looking for
