    Firstly, to help with the description a picture of how it came.
    Dirty, one leg detached, several leaks and fitted with a Radius adjustable burner.

    Description

    Capacity: 1.75 imp pints (2.11 US pints)

    Cleaned all components and reattached the leg (luckily it was still on the pot support).
    Replaced all the seals including the lead seal where the burner riser tube mounts on the fount.

    Replaced the Radius burner with an unmarked silent burner from another Lanray stove. I have 3 like this on Lanray stoves but I’m still not sure if these are Lanray burners as they are the same as Companion silent burners.
    Decoked the burner.
    Repaired a couple of pinholes in the fount.

    Note: As this is a collapsible stove I believe there would have been a reserve cap for transportation. The reserve cap shown is not original. I have modified a spare Primus reserve cap for the purpose (seen in the photos).

    Engraving very faint and worn.

    Burner riser tube with straight cut thread. It relies on a lead washer to seal.

    Excessive solder seen in photo was from a previous owner’s repair. I did clean it up a bit but decided not to go any further.

    Excellent, Martin! :thumbup:

    I’ve got a few Lanrays, but not that one.

    Thanks for the detail.


    Cheers

    Martin, that’s a great Lanray, I have two, but not the same, a steel one with lots of holes and a brass one going.
    Well done.
    Cheers

    Very nice stove and you've got it burning perfectly. Congratulations. You just don't find Landrays where I live.
