    This is a Companion (kerosene) stove I have never seen before. It has been used, but very little and came in very good condition.

    The only fettling I did was to replace the washers and seals and clean it with soapy water.

    It is designed, I think, as an indoor stove.

    The burner:

    The pump is a standard bore, but with a 'simple' NRV set up which screws directly to the end of the pump tube from the outside:

    The pip was cork (crumbly) so it was replaced with a 4.5mm viton pip from The Fettlebox.


    Fuel cap and pressure release valve:

    The outer burner caps are brass and the inner steel:

    Hello Tony Press.
    Nice stove you have there and the first of its type that I have seen. Great condition as well.

    It is amazing all the different makes and models that are still getting found around the world.

    Thanks for showing it. John

    Tony that is such a great looking stove.
    It was certainly designed for indoor use but would be fine to use for 'car camping'.
    It is in such amazing condition and is a stove of beauty.
    I would also like to thank you for the wonderfully detailed photos which are perfect for the Gallery.

    @ROBBO55

    Excellent catalogue! There are a few things I've picked up over the years that are also in there.

    I'll have to look at it in more detail when I'm back home.

    Cheers

    Tony
