    Well, I have added two more stoves to my growing collection. I have now got 4x 3 burner stoves, 12x 2 burner stoves, 1x 1 burner stove, 4x propane stove, 11x lanterns (2 are propane), 1x catalyst heater

    Picked these two up last night. The one is an undated 4M stove and the big one is 5/67 446 model. They both work. The only problem I had was with the large stove not having a blue flame on high, it was good on a low to medium flame, but once I went above it went more yellow/orange flame. Could be the fuel is old?

    Anyways, here are the pics! I have to pull apart the 4M and clean it as it is pretty greasy and as you can see, the previous previous owner had actually repainted the unit. And the first couple flame shots that are really high are when I first started it.

    I stopped counting - too tricky to figure out what I have, now I just try to buy less.

    Quite a few years ago I stopped counting at 100.

    The orange/yellow flame on 3 burner.... there has to be enough fuel available to run three burners, so when just running one on high there is too much fuel. Once you open all three, it should straighten out. Also, any stove that hasn't run in a while will have "things" it needs to burn off, which produces some colors.

    I don't have 100, but I would still hate to count...

    Don’t know how many stoves I have, probably about 50.
    Fuel types ratio is probably 10:10:1:1 for LPG : paraffin : meths : petrol.

    Also, for ever 3 stoves I buy, I probably only keep 1.

    I stopped counting when I didn't know what _1_ stove was anymore. Some stoves became parts, some stoves was not complete, so parts was swapping around. Counting wasn't an easy task anymore.

    but you can count up to 100 with fingers alone:-s

    adding in toes too maybe you could reach 1000 :D

    by then it might be time to think about slowing down? or moving to a larger shed? :lol:

    @Majicwrench is correct. Unless I am using all 3 burners I do not open it all the way. Same with a 2 burner.
    I turn it down, when yellow, unti I get blue.

    On an old stove, I gently tap the generator, when hot, to dislodge particles. You can see sparks fly out of the burner showing their presence. Then I turn the stove off BRIEFLY to put the pricker through the jet, then back open, before the flame goes out. Repeat many times.

    @igh371, being a bit decimal there, using fingers you can get over a thousand in binary.....

    I tried to look for some deep radar scans at Doc Mark position but it was obscured/cloaked like Area 51.
    I wonder how big the halls in his cellar are. :lol:
    Have a nice weekend Mark

    Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.
