    old multifuel cooker

    so cleaning out some shit in this place I just bought and came across an old multifuel cooker "Optimus n9111" I think it says ....one of those fold out things.....like the new optimus hiker, made in Sweden . tried it out but think the seals are shot . is it worth spending some time to get it working safely or is it just a collectable

    You should be able to get a seal kit for it I would think.

    Theres quite a following for the old optimus cookers especially if they have been restored nicely. I have seen a few now go for crazy ($300+) money on ebay

    I still use a Coleman Peak1 Apex Multifuel Stove, while not super old its kind of 80's retro-cool, it will out perform any of the modern multifuel stoves and is one of the only multifuels that can genuinely simmer. I actually managed to break one of the fittings on it (stood on it during last years tahr ballot) and couldnt for the life of me find the parts to replace it, then stumbled across some bloke in the UK that deals in old stoves and he had a brand new in its box Peak1 with its bottle, pump etc and a spare parts kit, so I snapped it up and now have two of them!

    Which actually reminds me, he was bloody awesome to deal with and even though he doesnt run a website selling things overseas he went out of his way to get the stove to me, charged a very reasonable rate, and did say that if I knew anyone who ever needed anything then I should feel free to pass his details on, he actually seemed a little too interested in old stoves haha.

    Pretty sure there is a guy over Blenheim Road that does seal kits for just about everything.
