    Kero, I don't see the benefit for that either so we agree.
    But my stove has steel feet, and those are nickel plated along with the entire stove.
    I only have this one 106, so it was from watching pictures of the stoves in here that I thought it looked like most other stoves had feet out of brass.

    Hi Christer, i will try to look through the Sv. 105 and 106 posts in the next week or so to see how many have brass feet, and how many steel feet.

    I already know that the majority have brass feet, and that some of the stoves from earlier dates have steel feet.
    It would be good to have the statistics of the CCS sample.

    I don't want pre- judge the situation but economics is often at the heart of decisions. In time of shortage or high prices, substitution of steel for brass seems to have been practiced in stove production.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    I dug out my 106 to add to the statistics.
    It is nickelplated, with plated, magnetic legs - i.e. steel.

    The paperwork is dated 1948/49

    It is packed in a fibre box, not the usual brown, marked with a worn sticker that designates it (barely) as a 106 on the outside

    I'll put it as a separate entry of 106 later on (after a cleanup) - hence the lack of pics.

    I have a "Trois Etoilles" N° 105 stove which is, as we all know, made by SVEA for the Standard Oil Company. It is brass, no plating of any kind to be seen anywhere, and the legs are steel. I have no idea when it was made but from what I found on Tinternet it looks like the Standard Oil Co changed its name to ESSO (at least in Europe) before the second WW. I also found a brown fibre case (SVEA 106/L) a while after finding the stove. No dating or clues found on it.

    Best regards,

    Wim

    I replaced the worn jet, restoring the correct fuel/air mixture and the blue flame.

    That's a great stove with a nice piece of history.
    The Svea 105 and 106 are among my most favorite stoves.
    The boxes are amost allways teared up, but yours is in great condition.
    I have a nickel plated 106, the box is marked 106/LN,what should mean Sport & Nickel plated

    @Tracer In view of the ongoing discussion: Does yours have steel legs?
