    Hello Friends,

    I had great succes last weekend at antiques market:
    I found something never seeing before, in excellent shape, very little used, with all parts an nice aged. Seems like Russian Rippingilles stove clone. I didn't find anything about them in Russian sites, but seems it was produced in aprox. 1950.

    Please, get fun with me:

    That's a great old stove! Are you going to restore it or preserve it? In either case we would love to see the "after" photos.

    Sure looks very nice! Will you try it out? I think it will perform rather well, maybe not as hot as a pressure stove, but the oven should work a treat!

    Best regards,

    Wim, I'll try it to burn, when wicks will come to me. I found today, the wicks are burned and are too short.

    Sparky, I'll leave them in genuine shape until I'll burn them. I hope, heat not will destroy more genuine paint: I very want to keep it in this nice aged shape.
    If the paint will burn, I think, will be best to repaint body with the modern black heat-proof paint.

    Keep,as is .
    As Is .In.
    Originally found condition :-)
    Dont think about a repaint ,, Find some wicks .. Burn a litre or several of fuel in it.
    What a delight .
    Needs to run for at least a weekend to evaluate .
    Slow & low power .... For the long haul .
    Nice big tent stove .
    Being mainly sheet steel , It is light(ish).. But maybe not compact :-).
    Keep As Is .. KAI .

    Nick.

    Hi Virginijus

    beautiful oven you have. What size are the wicks - 120 mm ? It is blue-flame system. It should give a backing temperature of 180 - 200 degrees C.

    When you have it running take pictures.
    best

    I just came across an actual offer from Moscow. This item is said to be in perfect condition with original manual. They want about 200 € for this item.

    here are some pictures.

    Maybe you can ask the seller if he will sent a copy of the instruction book to you.

    best Peter
