An eye dropper or flip top fuel dispenser is what is needed to keep from losing fuel during filling. The legs are sweet. I would love to find a supplier for the legs. I think mine will have to go in the stove curio cabinet. :lol:


mine has a spot on a window ledge. it looks nice but is a POS!!

actually, it's not the stove that disapointed me the most. that dubious honor goes to a brand new Svea 123R that doesn't work for shit. it wasn't worth the cost of shipping to return it to campmor. looks nice though. ;)

thanks Oops! i wondered if the cleaning needle was needed anymore. i tried the 123R with the needle removed and it still didn't work right.

i'll try and explain what the stove is doing. at the end of the pre-heat i open the main valve and the burner lights up, but it pulses; flares up and dies down on about a one second interval. i have both an 8R and a very nice '99', that both work perfectly. it's very annoying that the 123R doesn't work right.
