The stove itself it really robust. There are no brass, copper, or aluminum parts to this. Its all steel. The clam shell is made out of 14-16ga sheet metal. It's built like a tank, and your not going to hurt it easily. The pump handle and stove valve on the side are not removable for storage, and you fill the tank by holding the stove on its side and removing the pump. Its got a handle at the clam shell pivot. The priming pan is about the size of a quarter and is located right under the stove valve. When I get home I'll take a pic of it next to my 8R and my 533 for a size comparison... This is no back packing stove. It's WAY too heavy for that.

Once I figured out I needed to clean out the cosmoline, the stove worked "O.K.".. I've seen better, at the same time I've seen worse. I think with a little bit of tinkering about, it will make a nice stove.

Are you able to put some primer fuel in the outer ring under the pre-heat tube that spans over the burner head?
