MODEL TS-808

The looming shortages of many items, thanks to the complete societal shutdown of America for the COVID scamdemic, has resulted in the scarcity of many prep items including kerosene stoves such as the entire Butterfly stove lineup.  The Alpaca is not the ideal "perfect" kerosene stove but it is well made and very reliable and I now have them in stock for immediate shipping via Priority Mail. Alpaca heaters and stoves do not have UL Approval for indoor use - they lack a safety tip-over switch.

Features:
  • High 8500 BTU heat output
  • Burns kerosene, lamp oil
  • Large 3.5 liter (3.7 qt.) fuel tank
  • Long 15.9 hour running time
  • Easy-cleaning top pan
  • Fuel gauge
  • Comfortable carry handles
  • Steel drip tray base
  • Quality fit and finish
  • Pot/Pan supports built-in to make cooking easy.
  •  An all-metal catalytic chimney for complete safety - nothing to break
  • Versatile! Use as a heater!

Fiberglass wick #7C for Alpaca TS-808 stove

$9.95

Custom all-cotton wick for the Alpaca TS-808

$19.95

The wicks cannot be added to the "Buy Now" button for the stove.  Please order wicks separately and I will combine the orders and refund the postage cost for the wicks. Or email me at miles@milesstair.com.
The fiberglass wick is generally for high heat applications such as canning or using the stove as an emergency heater.  Some owners of the Alpaca prefer to use an all-cotton wick instead of the fiberglass wick for low temperature, simmering heat settings.  There are no commercially-made all-cotton wicks available - I have to make them using the appropriate wick material.

Owner's Manual for Alpaca TS-808/909 (Click Here)

Cooking Top Plate

This cooking top plate has four permanently attached pot/pan supports for cooking.  Fits most Alpaca heaters/stoves except the TS-909; if the top diameter of the body of your Alpaca is 14 1/8'' diameter this replacement top will fit. Many Alpaca heaters have a solid top without pot/pan support brackets (photo) and some have glass chimneys so this and the metal chimney below will convert those heaters to be excellent cook stoves.

$17.95

 

Metal Chimney

Fits virtually all Alpaca heaters & stoves

$4.95  

Rubber gasket

$6.95

Wick Shaft

Complete replacement wick shaft complete with wick knob at one end and gears at the other end for engagement with the wick sleeve.  Fits all Alpaca Heaters & Stoves

$14.95

 

Using the Alpaca TS-808 as an emergency heater

A "heat sink" is placed atop a stove to use the stove as a heater.  The heat sink absorbs and moderates heat while also covering the open flame for the sake of safety.

Alpaca TS-808 Detailed Images  (Click an image to enlarge it.)

Our TS-808's are visually similar to the heater shown at left except the top plate has four permanently attached cooking pot/pan supports as shown in this photo.

METAL_CHIMNEY

The catalytic burner unit ''chimney'' is metal on the TS-808. Other models of the Alpaca such as the TS-77 have a glass chimney.  Thus the TS-808 listed for sale above is perfectly safe to use as an emergency cooker as well as a heater.  A glass chimney can easily shatter if even a drop of water drips onto the hot glass!  But a metal chimney will not break even if dropped.
