Bluewater Stove Restoration

  Home of BernieDawg Silent Damper Caps --- UPDATED June 2014!!!


I’m a stove collector and restorer in Oregon, USA. I repair and restore vintage stoves and make specialty tools for repair and maintenance of these stoves. In addition, for four years now, I’ve been designing and building silent damper caps for a variety of vintage and modern backpacking and camping stoves. The caps I build fit the “roarer” style burner and replace its burner plate. Use of the caps reduces the noise level of the stoves. They also seem to improve the efficiency and fuel economy of the stoves by providing a better proportioned fuel/air mixture for combustion.

Two Types of Caps

I am now selling two types of caps - hand crafted caps and F-SERIES manufactured caps. Check the section of the webpage for the type of caps in which you are interested.

Beware of Imitators

Sadly, I seem to have started a whole industry of imitators who have attempted to copy my designs. Beware of these poor quality copies. Many of my customers have purchased from me after buying these copies and tell me that they are very inferior to my original designs. They may look alike, but nothing beats an original BernieDawg cap.

Just sayin’. ;-)

All my caps are guaranteed for life - mine, not the caps. :-)
