    I believe that this is pre-1950. After that date, the burner bell had a split in the base to stop it jamming on the riser/lipstick. This bell does not have the split.

    The male threaded pump collar is a machined lump of brass - no girly thin walled female collar here:

    The travel cap (often referred to as the Snuffer):

    No split in the base of the burner bell:

    The aluminium case is sound and cleaned up easily:

    The clip to hold the detached burner in transit:

    The clip to hold the stove in transit with the Reg Design Number 852741 stamped on the left:

    The lid simply hooks in place for easy removal:

    Finally the flame shot:

    Hi Terry

    It is great to see the fettling/cleaning/polishing you have done with this stove.

    People rave about the Swedish 96 stoves, and quite rightly so, but this lovely and innovative Monitor takes a lot of beating.

    Now if I can only find mine . . . . . . . . :-k

    Evening, Terry,

    That is one lovely little stove, my Friend, and what a great job you did in fettling and polishing it for use and display!!! Well done! :thumbup: 8) :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: Just like with my Veritas, which I've had for a very long time, I have a nice little Monitor, too, though not near as old as your wonderful specimen! But, seeing yours in action has made me want to fettle and fire up my own little Monitor, just as seeing Shed-Man's Veritas made me want to do that one! 'Bout time I did the pair of them, after owning them for more than 20 years! Again, very nice job on your older Monitor, and thank you for sharing your stove and your fettling/polishing skills here at CCS! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    This has got to be one of the best presentations of a stove on the site.
    It is about THE stove, no bull s**t no waffle.

    Thank you very much Terry.
