The photo Tetley posted just now of the flooded Newark campsite!
Yes John @presscall.
If the statics are that swamped I'm worried about the office and the people.running it to be homest.
I’m not saying what my grail is. Someone will end up outbidding me cause they saw the name listed here.
Most definately a Høvik Verk 44.
But since that is made of Unobtanium - I might settle for @presscall ’s British Military no. 6 cooker ;-)
Man, that British Military no. 6 cooker does look incredible.
Ok, ok I really like the M2A.
Not to actually light it honestly but you can store a huge amount of fuel.
I do like the Brit Military #7, also.
My Optimus 45, Primus 210, Optimus 111, and Optimus 8R's are my favorite go to stoves although the Primus No 5 holds a favored spot on my shelf because it was my first swedish stove.
An early British Military No.1 / Hydra-Burner Type A with the rounded-top cover, Mk1 Burner and oval pressure vessel.
Scrapped in their hundreds......
Who would ever be interested in those damn things 60-70 years on eh?
love them No1 burners, used them loads of time in the Army, even blow one up, there was two ways to light them, the proper way, or the fun way, the fun way was best, the worst bit was digging a 6' long trench to put it in
this one was even better to light, did if go with a bang
Also, a Primus No. 96.
I'm trying hard not to go over to the Kerosene side. But I did discover WalMart sells a gallon of Crown brand Kerosene for about the same price as a gallon of Crown white gas. About $8 and change, pre-Lock Down.
I find the pure K burns brighter in my Feuerhand 256, than the Tiki Torch lamp oil I had been using.
In truth, I no longer have a Grail stove, as I've been hugely blessed to have been able to find just about every stove I've ever wanted!! Yes, there is a stove I'd LOVE to have, but I gave up on it many years ago, and don't even pay attention, when it comes up for auction, anymore. So, I have FAR more than my share of interesting, rare, and enjoyable stoves, and I am honestly content!! Good luck to those who are still hunting, and may you all find Stove Contentment!!
(Please remind me that I wrote this........ later!)
I'm sure I'll get there one of these days, haha. Very new to all this. Sometimes, for whatever reason, a stove kind of jumps out at me, that I never gave much thought to before. I've been looking at the the Primus 96 for a bit now, but all of a sudden, the Svea 123 has been on my radar as well.
I saw this on ebay, the it's a little pricey but it looks to be in good condition @The Warrior but im guessing your aware the plentiful svea 123 & 123r's on ebay
SVEA 123 STOVE | eBay
I see them around that price a lot. I made an offer to a person earlier, but got denied, haha. I'll try and be patient for the right deal to come up. Even thought about buying a new one. They're cheaper than that. Nice looking stove though.
I think I have 4 SVEA 123r, just one 123 and an 8R that will need some TLC once arrives in my hands
The Grail of stoves has never been apparent, but Primus, Optmus and Australian stoves have been my passion. Now I only buy if it takes my fancy. Like a lot of people on this site I enjoy the ones that I got, there is to many to choose from. They need fettling from time to time but not much. Most just work off the shelf. It is interesting to read other’s restorations and views on this site.
