    As found, seen a bit of work on someone's buffing wheel, luckily they haven't polished the engraving away, apart from the Primus on top of the burner.

    Ha! All the hard work done for you Matthew (as long as it burns OK).
    All you need is the flame spreader.

    Haha, I know right. 8) Seller said it was in good working order, not sure how he'd know because there are no gaskets between the riser and burner.](*,)

    Hi @Matthew92 , nice stove. I look forward to seeing photos of it operating once you have replaced the missing HR washers.
    These are well-made stoves considering they were budget models, made to a price. Both the pan-rest and reserve cap were optional extras, but of course the latter was required if you wanted to transport the stove with fuel in it:

    Thanks for posting.
    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Hi @kerophile , thanks. Hopefully another one to fettle while i'm away. Should be able to get the missing parts, perhaps @Spiritburner will be bringing some HR washers with him.[-o<;):lol:

    Today, I had the chance of the 51's silent cousin, the 54 but decided agaist. That one was marked AV, so quite a bit later.

    Hello @Matthew92

    I will have burner washers at Newark on Wednesday. The stove should soon be sorted.
