:mrgreen: You are funny Mehem for sure!!!! don't feel bad though, Oops could'nt remember it at first. The first thing he said was it only comes in one size and then later he went on to say it came in different sizes. The important thing was the name, he got that correct :D

Oops was the first to give the correct answer "Spanner Wrench" Here is a little info about Spanner Wenches"

spanner for bykes http://www.sheldonbrown.com/harris/tools/fixedgear.html

spanner for lock set installation.http://www.mr-locks.com/service_item.php?id=14 this site gives the folloing definition of
spanner wrench
n. a tool for installing, removing or adjusting a threaded part. The tool is designed to engage one or more holes or depressions which are peripheral or not on-center to the part axis.


Spanner used in woodworking http://www.woodworkerswholesale.com/Hook_Collet_Wrench_p/pf00043.htm also known as a collet wrench. This is what oops might have used on lathes or milling machines. Also used on high speed routers.


The spanner wrench in my photo was used to install lock sets in doors.

If you find either of those stoves at a thrift store, you'd be better off sending Oops the alcohol stove and starting an auction here for the heirlooms. ;)

I use something that looks just like that on my bike. Is it a bottom bracket lock ring tool?


they do look similar... would be used on an old school bottom bracket with cones and bearings.

Oops, I forgot all about the Optimus9---never seen one on ebay. With all the collectors out there, I could not afford one anyway but i sure thought it was a real neat looking stove and wanted one. I had never seen the Ocomet at all. It is a neat little stove also. You have good and expensive taste. :lol: I wish there was a book with all the vintage oneburners in it with their history and all. Do you know of any publications on the subject?
