    The pot supports on this Solus are an anodized steel. They are gold in color.

    Morning, Matt,

    That is the single nicest looking Canadian Coleman Solus I've ever seen, Mate!! VERY nice stove, and your photos really allow it to show it's stuff! Congrats on scoring that one, as it's a real feather in your collection, IMHO!! Thanks for sharing it with us, too. Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    from the above artical
    "This process is not a useful treatment for iron or carbon steel because these metals exfoliate when oxidized; i.e. the iron oxide (also known as rust) flakes off, constantly exposing the underlying metal to corrosion."
    It might be a passivated zinc coating but I doubt that could be that well polished.

    Aha! So it is another name of electrolysis plating. Of course I know that.

    Thanks Randy, it burns beautifully too! I doubt it was ever lit much at all.

    Hi geeves, I checked the legs with a magnet when I first got this stove and they are definitely steel. I might have my terminology mixed up. I've seen metal like this before in various parts meant for outdoor use. It might be an alloy, not sure.

    Hey Matt,

    Beautiful Solus! Your artistic talents are coming through in your photography and makes the Solus even more striking.

    The diagonal knurling on the pump handle is very interesting. What's more is the little guide at the pump handle base.

    The pot legs are attached differently than what I've seen before on other brassies. Very unique.

    Thanks,
    sam

    Sam, thanks for your kind words. :content: :) That little feature on the pump handle is actually a lock. After you pump it up, you can turn the pump rod, so that the little edge on the base overlaps the edge of the knurled handle.
