    This later version is very different to the earlier version - the obvious - no folding legs.

    The tank pressing on this one is princibly the same as the Monitor 300 (shallower pressing on the top of the tank)

    The filler cap/SRV minus the spring, pip holder and screw jobbie that holds it all in, is all one piece - the earlier version was made up of two or maybe three pieces, not sure yet, have got to take it apart yet.

    The earlier filler cap, does come apart.

    Lovely 127 stove Ian.

    Well photographed in great detail.
    For those who have not seen one before, the 'feet' look very strange.

    The 127 was the budget version of the monitor 17.
    In the 1937 leaflet below, the 127 was one shilling and 9 pence cheaper than the 17.
    The difference was that folding legs were not riveted to the brass 'stubs' on the bottom of the stove.

    Out of interest, the difference in price translates to current 9 UK Pence or 15 US cents!!!
