Just got me hands on this, needs a good clean, wicks sime ok,
Welcome @CRAZY CRAB, lovely stove the 38.
Looks like it needs less work than mine did.
Turm 38 wick removal advice
Welcome to CCS.
after giving it a bit of a clean, spayed it with rust remover, got scews out, found some mico cracks in tank, filled it up with parrifin yesterday to see if leaking, and it was, so now going to give it a good old elbow greese clean, and put some magic metal putty around rim,
It's an alky, though, I reckon...
Congrats on your German Turm.
It is for alcohol/Meths for sure.
You could also - depending on the cracks - seal it from the inside or maybe soft solder it?
They are great indoor stoves with a great simmer. outside they may take a while if its just a bit windy.
hav'nt got round to soldering yet, always used metal putty, but now re-tyied, might try soldering, have to get blow torch and things and make me a small stove, its manly for me coffee pot,
Its great for a brew!
Main thing is to get it properly 100% clean before soldering it. A small pen torch might do it here.
Other replies in before me confirming ethanol/meths only.
A simple.pen torch will fix any small leaks, and as said ensure the area is clean, fine wire.wool.and fluxed. The pencil torch will heat in very small areas.
done some deep cleaning, if it works, me vid on face book, the done job
this is as clean as I will get it
got it up and running, 35mins now and still going , just using good old methylated spirits, going to try it on jet fuel, its 90p a Lt, cheaper
@CRAZY CRAB please don't try jet fuel. The Turm is not designed for it.
At the very least the jet size and air mixing system is for methylated spirits only. If you look in the reference gallery you'll find other examples, such as this one from @BradB where the filler cap says "nur fur spiritus" meaning alcohol.
me vid, slow in uploading, its on face book,
the on and off knob, not me, is a bit lose, what can i put into tude to tighten it up abit, you have onlt to breath on it and it moves
