Mystery Stove

Postby Ridgerunner » Sun Feb 09, 2014 5:27 pm

I recently bought this stove on eBay and am having no luck identifying it manufacturer or country of origin. End the good folks over at Classsic Camp Stoves are coming up blank. Apparently it is a rare stove. Maybe Oops will want to trade a Borde Bomb for it... :lol: I thought I would post it here just in case one of our members recognizes it ;) You may have to click the picture for the full view :roll:

That's quite the unique coil design...looks like an extreme ? mark.

Probably Swiss made.

Come on Oops, make him a deal for a Borde Bombe :D

Did ebay have a name for it? Did you question the seller as to where it may have come from..country?

Did it come with a pot support?

What is the size of the base? It looks triangular, is it?

No pot support! Seller had no background info on it. It did come with a jet pick and a nice metal funnel. I'd rather it had a pot stand and tin case :lol:

Tell us about the curl of the coil. It's not the usual design...right?

It's like taking a bobby pin and looping the hairpin curve down and curling it under.

Right.
That's the first time I've seen a coil like that. How about you, first time for you?

The bottom has a lip around the edge. The footprint is 2.25"x4.875"x 3.25"

The wedge shape of the base plus the lip on it makes me think it slipped into a wedge shaped holder to prevent movement. Could have been a heater for a "sad iron" back in the days before electricity. Oops56 should know...he's probably got one on his shelves along with the original box with instruction sheet. :D

I'm thinking that I remember one coming up for auction awhile back that included a three leg pot stand that was one piece with a central pivot point for adjustment. I might be wrong but that is what is dancing in my stovie thoughts :lol:
