Looks bit like my "box of Taylors' bits" - which is the result of forty years careful hoarding, started by my late father and continued by me!

Incidentally, it seems, according to the "basecamp" website, that the 207 burner is currently un-get- able, so its worth rebuilding them unless they are utterly carbon-ed up.

You can almost always recover a coked-up burner.

Heat and plunge works fairly well, but the old way is to bring the burner to near red heat and then blow air through it (remove nipple and cleaning needle first).

There are suilable burners still being made....
Goodfire (http://www.goodfirestoves.com/burners.htm) who lack an importer but perhaps the odd one could be found.

Oh, I think I can see a way to import the odd one or two...

What I need to find out first is, when Goodfire say they also make Hipolito type burners, are these all "roarer" type or do they also do a "silent" one?

Hipolito themselves gave up in 1999. Good burners but parts not compatible with Optimus.

I've not seen picture of their Hipolito style burners.

Another potential source is hytta (S825)

Indeed, Regulierbrenner s825 at Euros 39 each looks to be the ticket.

Need to persuade Martin to come over for another sail...

careful inspection reveals:
