    This Australian stove is unfettled and I have added it here at this stage to provide some pertinent information about Lanray stoves. The attached PDF format document has the details.

    *Edit: File moved to 'Articles' and can be seen here.

    Hi Iain - great PDF. I think the text would be better in the Article's section. Would you have any objection to it's inclusion there?

    I thought a few photos of the fettled stove would complete this story, albeit a bit late. Yes it doe's run well but I am no longer firing it up. Trying to preserve it, steel fount and all.

    @Sedgman

    Is it me, or has the *pdf disappeared?

    I believe it was moved elsewhere in CCS a long time ago as a reference.

    Hi Tony

    Found it in the articles area, which I was happy with at the time. Not sure how to make a link to it.

    Thanks for noting it.

    Thanks @ROBBO55 and it is very interesting re the colour. This was Australian Export Enamel ‘Brunswick Green’ and was cheap and really close to the color of the remaining paint. I was quite pleased with how the paint job went. I have had some luck with factory cans matching items very well at times. One was an Aladdin stove/heater and a Tilley iron also but at other times matching paint is tedious. Regards
