    It looks home made but it may not be. Never seen one like it.
    The stove looks like a wickey. It should be easy to get it working.
    Let’s see some pics of it going.

    Cheers
    Rob

    I see no flame control on the wicks, but it will go

    Cheers

    Thanks for your not answer @Robert Bruce

    Its not mine (yet?) I wasn't sure it was worth buying it. I like the look but the absence of a control knob on the wick makes it pretty hard to use and controle. Thanks for pointing that out!

    Not entirely sure what to make of that. ???

    First impression is it's certainly 'home made'. I don't think it conforms to any manufactured product so far listed here on CCS.

    Certainly not something I'd drive 10 miles to pick up I think.

    Stef, if it’s home made, which it may be, someone has put a lot of work in to it. I think it is worth getting but do not pay a lot for it. The stove is a querieo worth something.

    Cheers

    I let it go. Someone put a lot off time in it, and I like the look. But the asking price was 45 euro...

    From the size of the wicks, it looks to be an alky burner. If it was just meant for boiling, not cooking, no fine control would be needed, so no control knob. Wouldn't be the first stove with on or off settings and nothing in between.
