    This Vacuum "Sunflower" No.2 was made by Hipolito.
    Though not as well made as my other Hipolitos IMO, this No.2 has a rather thin walled tank and the feet, although attractive, are quite thin brass and are easily bent out of shape. It runs ok, but not as nice as the others. I cleaned out the tank, replaced the jet , pickled the burner( actually it was quite clean to start ) , but still flame is still not quite right,but acceptable.

    This stove came without legs. The spirit cup is steel as well as the flame ring.
