Goodo .... I did run the thing before I despatched and the grill was not all that happy. I'm guessing a pipe cleaner up its fundamental should do the trick.

Oh yes and btw ... we did use the outer gymbal brackets on Raven but your existing will probably do the trick.

hmmm .... now if these tossers have it right I can expect to receive two metho stoves sometime in the not to distant future ..... or am I misinterpreting ....

Re: Metho Burner Replacement

No probs. Saves me looking for them in the package. I notice the knobs are identical and, now I see where the label is on the side, it is very possible mine is a REALLY old version of yours.

Interesting.. would have passed right by that. Just like there are still a dozen or so nutters who give enough money to Nigerian scammers each year to keep the art going, perhaps they're hoping for just one Complete Moron to happen by and make all their dreams come true. It's been known to happen before.

Might have to be something other than a metho stove... they're in short supply - and I'm not sure you need one anyways.

Re: Metho Burner Replacement

Finally got the stove installed on the weekend - it fits perfectly and works great!

With the grill underneath, it sits a bit higher than the old stove. I was planning to lift the old one higher and put a drawer underneath, but now that project is canned and I can have proper toast in the mornings instead... a much better solution all round, say I!!



The First Mate thinks it's great since she can use this one without risking burning the boat to the waterline..

Three cheers for old Womby!! Hip hip..

goodo - I was a little waorried the grill wasn't working but I guess all is well.

Now don't you forget your side of the bargain.

Must be non religious, non denominational, non right wing political. My choice would be Medicin Sans Frontiers.

Re: Metho Burner Replacement

This is the first alcohol stove thread I've ever read where no one jumped in to say how dangerous (pressurized) alcohol is... how it flares up... or how the flame is not very hot... which of course is baloney anyway.
