Tank 75mm diameter x 31mm high.

Wick holder 9mm diam x 110mm long with slot 3mm x 90mm.

Can't guarantee the wick holder is absolutely correct because it has been replaced. It works well, though.

Regardless as to whether or not it is the right size, that's a very nice, Bomanesque looking burner you have made!

Looks good. In fact it looks very much like the M122 burner

You have done a great job on those burners.  They look very well made.
