    This one is for sale near me. I know little about the Turms, other than it's a meths stove. Not sure if it's all there. I see others listed in the SRG but they show valve stem on right side?. Is this an illusion or am I looking at it wrong? 240389327_265554335391944_590461210022623463_n__1630543642_76439.jpg

    The stove is upside down in the "open" photo, not fully open/assembled.

    Once fully opened and put together, it should look like those in the reference gallery.

    Thank you. Obviously the seller is as confused as I was.

    As far as I can see, all loose parts of the stove are aboard. It should work as it is. A funny stove. I own one myself.

    The decal is often burned. Some owners do not know to remove the burner cover for use.

    I like the early Turm Sport but it takes more fettling to fold/unfold than most other stoves so it doesn't get much use.

    They are great little alcohol burners. That one looks to be in good shape. 1C17A631-0C36-4668-BE43-A4E4C4CDD71B.jpeg

    The decal on my Turm stove is partly damaged. Does anyone have a photo of the complete decal? it is the decal in the photo above in goldwinger's post. I have most of it except the bottom right english portion. Not sure what the complete text is. I am trying to reproduce a decal.

    @Lennart F
    Thank to correct me. I did a link mistake, the Warrior was the last person to comments. Sorry
