Here is another early No. 80 in the square tin box that I have had for a while. Probably from the 1930's? The box is quite beaten and rusty. The front flap hinges are broken. But the stove itself seems to be in really good shape. I have never tried to light it before, but today I thought - let's see what state this little gem is in. Can I get it to run with an absolute minimum fettle? Obviously the cork packing in the tank lid was mostly cork dust. So I took a normal #2078 flat tank lid seal, cut off a bit of the outer diameter with a pair of scissors to make it fit. Finally cleared the jet with a pricker. Then filled just a little bit of white gas and preheated with alcohol… ...and she lit!!! Perhaps not a very strong flame, but absolutely steady. Don't know the condition of the wick. But no sign of leakage. Spindle valve worked perfectly and closed properly. I'll probably leave it as is - "If it ain't broke don't fix it!" I really like these old tin boxes. I'm amazed at how well they use the panels for instructions, cross selling other models and boasting the USP's of the brand.
