My Optimus 8/8R collection. A newer 8R upper left, embossed 8, lower left an old 8, then a embossed 8R.
My Coleman Power Max stoves, all three. Double burner Xpedition, four legged Xpert, three legged Xtreme. I obtained a bunch of discontinued Powermax canisters last Spring, did not know
how long the supply at a fair price would last.
My newest stove a Trail Designs 12-10 (Caldera Cone) stove with my smallest pot, a Evernew .6 L pot. Has not been used on a trip yet, but in testing on a car camp trip, had a very fast boil time for 1.5 cups water. What does not make sense in more than one way, the pot is shorter and the "cone" is the same height as the one for my larger and taller REI .9 L pot , meaning the smaller pot is further from the flame. More use to come on this light and compact setup.
A couple more Coleman stoves a Exponent F1 and its larger brother/sister a F1 Powerboost. The smaller F1 is a real powerhouse, it was given to me by Paige as it would not shut off. I had it working properly when I got it home in five minutes. Nothing a little oil in the right places could not solve. A good lesson on important pieces of gear, take care of them. I don't leave my stoves outside any more. They can collect dew or rain, not good for parts that can rust. Most stoves we use are around 9,000-10,000 btu's, the little F1 is around 12,600-13,000 btu's, can't recall how much.
One shot of my Svea 123/123R's and the Sigg Tourist set.
A good shot of the three differing models/years. A 123R on the left, notice the spindle is flat, not angled down like the older 123's. The 123 in the middle is maybe from the 80's, while the one on the right is older from the late 70's to very early 80's, got it from the original owner who supplied the denin stuff sack. This one is older as you can tell from the vaporizer, it does not have any rings/ribs on the vaporizer. It works the best of the three. The "R" models have a cleaning needle under the jet.
