Wow Larry, that was my first stove too, about 30 years ago (and it was 'old school' even then). Mine still works, weighs a ton and has always had a number of eccentricities in cold weather, but when the brass is polished it's a work of art.Larry Bolton wrote:The first stove I had was a SVEA 123 (sold through Optimus).
The stove itself weighs less than an ounce. Although you'll have to carry a seperate fuel bottle, which adds weight of course. Once you fill the stove up it burns for about 7-9 minutes. Alcohol burns less hot than white gas or butane though, so that one burn is just enough to boil a pot of water for a one-person meal. However, once you factor in the time it takes to pump, unclog and set up a white gas stove, the time difference is not really that big.matt gilbert wrote:That's a great link Lizard. Im going to have to put one of those together (just for fun if nothing else)
How much does your stove weigh (approzimately) and how long would you estimate the fuel carried in the can burns for.
