    Hi All

    Ron said i should put the "Zora" burner on something else until i find a Parasene fount , so i did :D :thumbup: i made a 96 adapter by threading a brass blank in the lathe :thumbup: & silver soldering a primus riser to it :D :thumbup:

    I also picked these two kettles up from a second hand stall on Swaffham market , the brass one was £3.00 & the little ally one was 50p 8) :thumbup:

    Stu, what a great job mating the zora burner to the 96 :thumbup: when you fire her up do let me know if the tank/fount does get hotter than normal for a 96 burner. Just curious about it.

    And the brass kettle looks very nice...USED or new? Can't complain about the ali kettle @ .50pence :mrgreen:

    Just arrived from the 3 hour Milling Class :thumbup: Now I CAN use the milling machine. Darn, now I have to get my own bits :rage: which does NOT really come cheap looking at fleabay.
