Given that I have decided not to make my first attempt at stove restoration with my Optimus - I have got myself a couple of new stoves - a Valor and a Monitor. Here are some piccies of the Valor - the Monitor will follow. I also have a Companion arriving soon - these things tend to multiply quite quickly don't they?? This is totally untouched since I received it - so its very grubby, and many of the markings are obscured - I will post further when I start to clean it up. I think the only thing missing is the Flame Spreader. The stamp on the bottom is very unclear - "12-7" is the only thing I can make out at the moment. Any comments would be received with interest - especially on Historical Value/Interest, Year etc.
