    A work in progress but thought a few pictures of this stove were in order. This is a lovely stove made by Samuel Heath & Sons but has RM logos on the tank and the tin.

    A lovely stove Lighthouse!

    These stoves are sturdily made and burn well - surely as good as the Swedish contemporaries.
    Well done! :D

    Thank you very much Trevor!

    These stoves were made to a high standard and 'breathe' quality. The flame spreader and the little folding feet are very nice features of this stove.

    I had some time today to fettle this stove and bring it back to life. The stove was mechanically in good condition, the stickers were in good condition and there was no rust inside the tin. However as you'd except from an item of this age it needed some new washers (lead washer and a new pump leather) but was soon made functional again.

    Flame spreader and windshield. Interestingly the flame spreader is marked with the number 13.

    RM sticker on the tin.

    Wrench.

    Travel cap and those little feet - the smallest I have ever seen on a stove.

    Windshield, legs, flame spreader.

    And running. The stove is surprisingly powerful, even though the tank is only a third of a pint.
