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

G,day
not sure if you can help but are there any tech drawings of bunker equipment available including electrical and commuication junction boxes powerboards and equipment.. I was surprise Seimens did have tech details of their old bakelit joints available online
I have been searching with little luck and many pics or links no longer work. Also a list of search recommendations of words, terms and phrases in german to help.

The original sources are of course the most important ones, for instance:

D. 796 Handbuch der Fernsprech- und Signalanlagen in Festungen

D. 937 Funkgerät Zahlenangaben und Abbildungen - Zahlenangaben
D. 937/1 Der Umformersatz EU a (Bauart Tornado)
D. 937/2 Der Umformersatz EU a 1 und EU a 2
D. 937/3 ?
D. 937/4 ?
D. 937/5 Merkblatt zur Bedienung des Umformersatzes EU a

D. 1790/1 Merkblatt für den Aufbau von Truppenfunkgerät und Behelfsantennen in ständigen Anlagen der Landesbefestigung
D. 1790/2 Gerätebeschreibung der Festungsantennenanlage
D. 1790/3 Einbauanweisung für die Festungsantennenanlage
D. 1790/4 Gebrauchsanleitung für die Festungsantennenanlage
D. 1790/5 ?
D. 1790/6 Richtlinien für Einsatz, Bedienung und Aufbau der Festungsantenne alter Art
D. 1790/7 ?
D. 1790/8 ?

Norm- und Typenblätter für Maschinen und Maschinenteile zur Ausstattung von Befestigungsanlagen
'S-Teile' Atlas

(note that these two "catalogs" are found in the sammelmappen on NARA T-78 Rolls 773-774-775, and you can find the content in the "Mobilier et aménagement des bunkers" series of books by Alain Chazette as well).

There are probably some relevant versions of the "Eingeführte Waffen und Geräte" series publication, and allied Technical Intelligence Reports would also be a good source.

I am from Russia and I apologize for my English . On this forum, I write through a translator. My interests are underground structures on the territory of East Prussia .You can help if there are any technical drawings of bunker equipment, including electrical and communication junction boxes, power boards and equipment.Telephone junction boxes, alarm system. Door opening alarm schemes. And similar equipment.
