    Just arrived.
    Shipping the 27 lb 3 oz package across the US cost more than the stove.
    The pump leather was dry, I had to oil it for 2 days to have the pump work, but it does, quite well.

    Out of the box, this 90+/- year old stove lit without a fettle.
    The irony, it was a better simmer than full on high. The flame on high was huge and a lot of yellow. The simmer, a very nice blue.

    Hey, Ken,

    WOW!! That Basford 6 just screams "quality, and heavy-duty performance"!!!! I love it, and before this one, I'd never even heard of this brand, nor the manufacturer. Thanks for the glimpse at what looks to me to be a very fine stove, and well worth owning, and using!! Hearty congrats on your great score, and thanks, again, for sharing it here! Well done!! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Mark

    When you're ready Ken, sight of the burners lit would be welcome.

    Classy stove. Is that a warming rack of some sort that bridges the windscreen flaps?

    Jalousie!!!

    The Green-eyed Monster stirs.....

    You are indeed fortunate!!! Such things are rare to find, and in that condition, worthy of the expense.

    Can't wait for the nocturnal pyrotechnics!!!

    Best regards,

    Mike.

    Thank you all.

    @presscall You get flames here, as requested. Nocturnal Pyrotechnics!

    Flame shots. There is a very slow 'bubbly' leak at the filler cap. That will need to be cleaned or probably changed.
    Just to give some idea of the size, I put a early Sievert Svea 123 on the warming tray.
    The wood plank that the stove is set on is 27" x 36" (685.8 mm x 914.4 mm)
    Enjoy,
    Ken in NC

    Grand!

    Earlier I asked,
    I see from those photos it could be used as such, but makes a handy shelf for utensils and pots too.

    @presscall I missed that John, my apologies.
    Yes, it is a separate piece that 'sets' into 'ledges' on the windscreen. The ledges are additional sheet metal that allows the 'flap' of the rack to slide in and also hold the windscreen to the proper width.
    I am redesigning the shed walls right now. I plan to take more detailed photos of the Basford, when there is bench space for the beast.

    Looks like a functional user with lots of handy space.

    What do you tend to use the Oxy Acetelene torch for, cutting? & or Brazing?

    Only small sil-brazing so far with small jewelers torch and tips.
    It is currently empty, so I've been using the Bernzomatic torches with Mapp and Propane, and a small butane for the really small brass rod on the Turner genny.

    A guy on CCF said to open the air flap half way for a better burn on high. I'll try that later.

    When I finish adding shelves in the shop, for stove display, I will fire it up.
    E on CCF posted about that air manifold flap.
