    I’ve had this for a while, and have decided to get it going:

    The tin.

    Inside the tin.

    The stove.

    It’s a homemade job, made from old Primus stove parts, and unmarked blowlamp parts, with additional workshop fittings.

    Cheers

    That's cool, someone thought about what they wanted and improvised with what they had?
    The feet are interesting from a home made point of view.

    A marsupial stove, so to speak...similar, but different.

    Good to see you at virtual Newark, Tony.

    Good to see you, too, @Ed Winskill , albeit briefly.

    Cheers

    I’ll get this thing going and post it in the Reference Library. I suspect it’s quite old.

    @Ian

    I have a particular reason to do something like that myself. I need a freestanding stove without legs or it’s own trivet, and I’ve got a box full of wrecked or incomplete blowtorches.

    Cheers
