    Hi lovely folks,

    we have several of these lovely
    Stoves however they run without a regulator which means every time I want to use it I have to change the regulator over on my gas set up- which is quite frustrating.

    i was wondering if I could re-jet this high pressure stove to work with a standard regulator?

    Has anyone done this successfully and perhaps know where I might start? Or if this would even work??
    I read on another forum you could drill the jet and make it larger?

    it’s such a lovely stove and so compact, and in our off-roading/ camping vehicle is ideal for my husband and I. The modern stoves are all big and clunky, but the regulator issue is frustrating.
    Any help would
    Be greatly received.
    Many thanks
    Sam

    Hi Sam
    Instructions on the inside of the lid suggest ways in which to use different bottle gas sources - with different adaptors, with or without the Veritas ‘yellow’ regulator. How do those instructions relate to what you want to connect your stove up to?

    I have one of these and love it. I accidentally threw my yellow regulator in the bin! I am using now with a EN417 style disposable gas cylinder and seems to work fine - this is I belive the same high pressure as a campingaz cylinder, i.e. butane / propane bottle pressure. I wonder if the yellow thing actually is a regulator.

    I have tried in the past to convert a high pressure stove to low pressure (Tilley Titan), and I found that the burner construction is completely different. Drilling out the jets did not do it - I think it is also about how much air is introduced into the gas jet before it enters the burner. I gave up, and now run all stoves as high pressure via disposable EN417 cartridges.

    I'd be careful even opening one of those.
