    Howdy gang... I've started tearing it apart. I had some problems with it, but I was able to take it apart without too much incident. The hardest part, was removing a bolt that had rusted to the point where the bolt was stripping... nothing a torch can't handle (North American torch, not what we call a flashlight; that's what you Brits call a torch...)! Now, the hard part will be getting the rusted out filter wires... Ugh, I hate this part!!!

    The Turm 36, completely disassembled...

    This is the body of the stove; it needs some serious work! So, a lot of Jasco paint remover, and a wire cup, and we're off!!!

    Here's all the mounting hardware. Pretty badly rusted, so they're soaking in CLR to remove the rust...

    Under the circumstances, the burner units look good... just suffering from serious oxidation! A little Brasso, and some sweat equity, and this beast should be operational!

    The Preheater cups. Auf Deutsch, antwarmschale... these are badly rusted, so they've been covered in Jasco, and I plan on hitting them with a wire cup!

    The bottom of the tank... I'm not looking forward to removing those rusted out, filter holders!!! Any ideas on how best to remove those things?

    And finally, the top of the tank... In spite of all the age, the burners worked when tested; they just need new filters!!!

    Thanks to the moderators for the suggestions on how to upload the photos... Luckily, I'm using Linux, and I've found some cool jpg editing software! :shock:

    I also have a Turm 39 single burner stove... I picked that one up from this German kid in Hannover. I only paid something like US$25 for it, plus shipping from Germany! That thing uses a lot of alcohol!!! I mean, we're talking a half litre of alcohol!!! Wow!!! But, it puts out a lot of heat! Now, the hardest part with this thing, is cleaning out the feed tubes. It has a dual feed tube coming from the tank, but I'm wondering if this is just for show. I also tried fibreglass strands for the wick, but to no avail!!! I think, what I need to do, is braid the fibreglass, and make a candle wick. They do sell fibreglass candle wick, and I'm giving serious consideration on using it... Hopefully, it isn't near as messy as this fibreglass patch material I've been using...
