Another wreck brought back from near death. The Monitor No.2 (Motorists) Cabinet stove, 1½ pint big brother to the ½ pint walker's and cyclists picnic stove, is only known from catalogues and adverts dated 1939. A new launch, production was curtailed by the war and was not restarted afterwards. So even pretty ropy examples like this are worth saving. It looked dreadful: but in actuality there were only 2 major parts missing, the correct burner and the cabinet front door. Luckily a correct original burner, complete with the special valve in the base to prevent leakage in transit, was ready to hand: And underneath all of the filth most of the original gold painted tank finish was still present. During replacement the NRV pip and filler cap seal were found to have been turned to a brittle charcoal consistency suggesting some unfortunate fire-related incident which might also help to explain the blackened nature of the rest of the stove when found. Had someone once ill-advisedly tried to use petrol in it, despite the clear sign only to use paraffin? Obviously the outfit is still missing its front door and a replacement is highly unlikely to be found. At some time in the future, however, there is a plan to make a homemade substitute from some spare aircraft aluminium; and at that point the cabinet will be given more attention.
