    Steelman what a supurb meeting you have had. As others have said most outstanding. All those collectors together makes our little US meets seem like a backyard get together. Really the first one was, now we have to try very hard to match this with more and more people in our meets.

    Fantastic stoves!! Looks like like a lot of fun for all.

    Steelman: What do you know about the little double fount military looking stove in the twelth photo from the top? This one has been in our mystery stove section for some time without any definitive information being provided. I have two of them and would like to find out as much as I can about them. Thanks. Gordon

    Nice meeting Steelman!

    Came to think of it, have you ever seen any of those Optimus 8 clones made in Taiwan? Not long ago we had a discussion about a stove that looked like an Optimus 8, but it had a windscreen that it said Made in Taiwan on. It would be interesting to know more about these...

    Hey, Steelman,

    Ander's post brings a question to mind. Is that clone of the 8R still being made and sold in Taiwan? If so, is the special windscreen available as an add-on? And, if it is, will it fit a regular Optimus 8R, and where can we all buy one? Many thanks, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Hi Steelman - congratulations on what looks to have been a fantastic weekend of pressurised fun! So glad it was a success - let us know when the next one is as those of us who can't be there like to be there in 'spirit' if not in body! :lol:
    Great pics of the 111s - if you had lit all of them you could have broken the Swedes record! :lol:

    Evening, Steelman,

    Many thanks for letting us know, my Friend! I'd bet that, if someone could come up with a windscreen that looks and works like the on on the Taiwanese 8R clone, that many of us would buy several of them, each! I'll have to give that some thought, and see if I can come up with something. Thanks, again, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Hi~Doc
    Taiwan 8 R clone, formally known as the No. 808, , the original company inside the second floor of a company and homes in taipei, but about 20 years ago to stop selling...

    Best Regards

    Thank You Steelman!

    That is great information, now we have a number on the stove that "Wild Child" owns, it is number 808. You don't by any chance, remember the name of the company that made them?

    Good Morning, Steelman, and All,

    This has been a very interesting topic, and quite educational! My sincere thanks for Steelman for helping to educate us all about the #808 Taiwanese stoves!! I wonder if the Taiwan/Optimus 99's were made by Shan Ke, too? Do you know this information, Steelman? I know where two of those Taiwan-made 99's are waiting for someone to buy them, and may have to be the one that does so!! ;) 8) :D They have been patiently waiting for several years, now, and I'm sure will still be there when I next visit that area. I'll let you all know, when that happens.

    Steelman, is someone offering replacement parts for the Taiwan-made stoves? Or, do you know if the Swedish parts will cross-over to the Taiwan stoves? Is there any information out there about any testing that was originally done on these stoves, related to strength and safety? I know that most of the Swedish stoves have been tested quite a bit, and wonder if the Taiwan stoves were, too. Thanks, again, for all your help, and again, I'm very glad you are a member and Stove Brother, here at CCS!! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    A very interesting post allround, I'd say.

    I've been looking through the photos for a while now and this stove kept catching my eye.
