copper coil stoves

Postby steamjam » Wed Oct 24, 2012 4:03 pm

I got this in the mail today.

Can't wait to test it although on first impression, I'm going to have to re-engineer it a bit. (position of jet) cleaner coil bends, cut down the size abit, etc etc.. I think the fundamentals are there in the design. Just needs some nipping and tucking to make it perfect.

They are interesting stoves. Any idea how old the design is. Do you think it's a spinoff of something commercial?

Oops56 might have some vintage information about them.

I have a Takit burner. Not the entire stove like Ridgerunner has.

I wonder if this was the forerunner:

Yes, I noticed the wick being one piece instead of two as well. I also don't think much of the tank not being sealed. It splits into two. Its a good thing Im out of service and back at my desk full time to be the IT guy for the winter. I'll have plenty of time to tinker at my desk..:-D

Oops, could you cut a borde bomb in half lengthwise, in the interest of stove science, to show us the inside of a borde bomb? If you didnt have two of them,I wouldn't ask! :lol: :lol: :lol:
