I recently purchased this lovely little paraffin burner on EBay. I was a bit surprised that the tank for it does not contain a pump of any kind. It does contain a non-return valve with a nipple which looks suspiciously like an old style bike valve. I suspect that I will need to make a little pump to pressurise it, much like a little boiler feed pump. I'm also not sure about the pre-heat side of things. I was expecting a little dish or something where I could pre-heat it with methylated spirits. There is no provision at all for pre-heating. I could put a little tray of meths under it but I'm not sure how well that would work as there are no holes to allow the heat to transfer into the pre-heat coil. If anyone has any experience with this kind of burner I would be very interested. I believe it was made by a man called Peter Aitkin. As far as I know it has never been used.
