    This elusive stove model popped up in a post by @Frankarooney a while ago. The post is here. Whilst I haven't finished fettling mine yet, I thought I's post it here as @ROBBO55 had mentioned it's not in the gallery.

    This unit has been gunked up something chronic and I'm still battling it. The fount is now cleaned but I'm soaking it for a while to get the NRV out. Should be a nice stove when I get it going.

    I think from the control knob the stove is probably mid fifties or later.

    I will post a money shot when I can get everything right.

    After unsticking one really bad leg, I cleaned them up with the aged look still intact and clear glossed them.

    The only marking on it.

    Everything was 'gunked up' and tight.

    Even the control knob was so stuck, even after some good treatments!, that I ended up cutting it off as I had an identical spare.

    The pump rod was the only thing that went my way readily.

    Very nice Iain.

    I have an Aladdin trivet that fits that stove.

    Cheers

    That’s interesting Tony. I wondered about the trivet. If I get it going we must talk. I am puzzled that there is little Aladdin mention of single burners other than the Aladdin stove/heater model. Earlier ads mention a single burner but often it is the Thermil Blue Flame being advertised at the same time. I am wondering too if this was not some sort of picnic model with the removable legs and the raised fitting in the fount. Probably comes from the right era; but time will tell.
    Regards

    I’ll put photos of the trivet on the site tomorrow.

    I’ll look though my pile of stoves, and if I don’t have an Aladdin, it’s yours.

    Cheers

    Iain, it's a nice example and thanks for posting.
    You could be correct about it being a collapsable model. I haven't seen any evidence but will keep it in mind when searching documents.

    I didn't know Aladdin made a single burner until your post. Another stove to add to my wish list.

    Ben, those wish lists grow faster than we can clear them.

    @Sedgman I at least got the Aladdin two burner checked off with this recent purchase. Shipping was 4 times the cost of the stove.

    Ha! So you’re the one that beat me on that one...

    She’s certainly colorful, hopefully in good working condition...

    That colorful well used look is what attracted me to it. I'm not going to change a thing. I contacted the seller to see if she'd ship it to California before bidding. She said her husband fired it up and it does work. Look for it in the Reference Gallery in a month or so.

    Finally working took a week to soak and remove the NRV, service it and the burner assembly and now burning very smoothly. Money shot below.
