I was finally able to add the U.S. made Coleman Solus to my collection. This stove has always been my own holy grail. Others might have the Borde or a rare Radius stove as theirs...but this one was mine. It arrived today and I gave it a quick and superficial cleaning, inspected the NRV and lid gasket. I replaced the washers with a couple of George's heatproof washers and went outside to try it out. The interior of the fount was virtually immaculate as was the exterior of the entire stove. I primed it, and it fired up and burned stronger than any other stove I've got! Talk about a roarer! I put it in the space I had reserved for it alongside the two Canadian Solus stoves I had. I'll give it a good going over and polish this winter when I'm trapped inside.
