    Hi

    This is my first post here in the gallery as iv'e been very busy lately :thumbup: :D .

    It's a one pint RM roarer stove iv'e fully restored for a friend, not sure of the date but it belonged to his grandfather ,so i would say at least 1950's. Ive also included a copy of the original instructions

    Hope you approve, The stove had the full treatment including re-silver soldering the bottom vap tubes which leaked like a seive & the tin was refurb'd outside but left lightly polished inside, the spirit can was full of holes as usual so i completely leaded the bottom & one side pin hole to make it tight.

    If you would like a copy of the instructions PT me :thumbup:

    Best regards Stu.

    Lovely restoration Stu, and to go to the extreme of repairing the spirit can is beyond the call of duty! Very well done. Steve.

    Hi All

    Yes the tin was in a bad way too with lots of dents & plenty of rust, so i bell brushed most of the rust off with my drill & then by hand with wet & dry paper (i even soft soldered the holes up in the bottom of this as well! ) after that it got the Lance treatment :thumbup: :D BIG HAMMER ( it was Lance that did Yonadav's tin ,sun's got to me :D ).

    finally with plenty of grey primer & finishing coats of mars red (the closest colour match i could find) this is what it finished up looking like :thumbup:

    Best regards Stu.

    Looks great! Your brass polishing is always extra nice!
