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.

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.

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.

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.

Re: Metho Burner Replacement

LOL! I have learned a bit of Strine and know what a Drongo is.

On my Facebook page I claim to speak both Murkin and British English. We truly are two (no, three!) countries divided by a common language.
