Yes quite some space Jos. This is a PK-photo, also in the NARA B/W Westwall photo series.

Here some pictures of my wt80, origin is Westwall.

The nummer is 222. I'm curious what this number means? 222'nd stove made, or maybe batch 222?

Maybe someone here on the forum has more info on the WT80 stoves?

Part 2.

As visible it's lacking the handle for the valve on top, so i used a modern one.

The plate for baking / hanging your watercontainer is also missing..

There are multiple numbers and stamps on the stove and even WAA stamp in the top valve!

I think the valve is designed for a WT80K, because it did not fit the holes on my stove.
It seems to be different than the regular valve for wt80K..

Gr, Tim
