Regner Else

Hi all, I recently acquired this Regner Else from facebook and it looks to be brand new which is obviously great news for me but its come with no instructions of any kind. I emailed Michael Ragg at Argyle and he said they've never imported one and thus have no documentation on it. has anyone had any experience with these? I'm pretty keen to have a go at steaming it up but at the moment i cant even find a way to get water into it short of pulling the whistle valve out of it or pulling the safety valve off.

Did a quick search and this UK site may be able to help as I cannot find a direct link to Regner.

Have been advised that any info may need to be translated but I don’t really know.

When some of the other usual crowd come on line later they will probably be able to help.

carry on,

Monty

Safety Valve out is a pretty normal route for filling the boiler. Use a syringe till water comes out of the top the. Remove 30-40ml so that there is somewhere for steam to go to. Steam Oil goes in what looks like the Westinghouse pump at the right front of the boiler, the knob sets the amount of flow of oil. Close this completely then open perhaps 1/2 to a full of a turn to get the oil flowing. After your first run on wooden blocks check to see how much used, if not a lot may need opening a little more for the next run. Gas will go in via a valve in the gas tank, Butane only. You may have difficulty gassing the beast, Reiner Gas Valves are notorious for this and a replacement from an iMP otter may be needed. Hope that helps some.
