    Valor '55' stove date marked 6.48 (June 1948). Utility pressed steel pan support legs. Unfortunately missing the unique trivet which should go with this sort of leg. Decided to see how well it would still work after finding a cheap chrome ring trivet which just happened to fit!

    Success! so now here it is heating up a pan of paraffin wax and chainsaw chippings ready to make firelighters:

    Weird pot support legs!

    Definitely would require a special trivet for those legs or any trivet for that matter to heat anything up with that stove, unless it was a really big pot that could span the distance.


    Thanks,

    Hi Ian, I can only see the one photo.

    I have never seen legs like that on a stove before.
    I wonder whether the stove was specially made as part of a heater or other device?

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    There is another Valor in the Gallery with the same type of legs AND the special pan rest. It is a '51' posted by 'iani', and interestingly it is also from 1948.
