    IMG_20151227_090250.jpg What a great surprise. No2 son bought me a Samuel Heath & Son stove. It's a 1958 vintage which just misses my birth year by a year. He saw it in a second hand shop in Skipton (north Yorkshire) and had to do a round trip of 50 miles 3 times to catch the shop open. Glad he did. He knew it was a paraffin stove but nothing else, how lucky am I ? Look's like it's been housed in an old Jacobs fig biscuit tin. Certainly should keep the wind at bay and would be a shame to remove it from it's home so the tin will stay. Next job....see if it holds pressure, quick fettle to do whatever necessary as another 'workshop breakfast' is on the cards at Tinman's place.....Don't want to miss it!!!!....keep you all posted on progress..

    Hiya Albert! Great to hear from you. That's one for one of Duncan's 'breakfasts' I reckon. Sons and daughters are great. No stoves from mine this Christmas but they kept me primed with alcohol over the break like I was an old Primus.
