Hi all and Hello from the West Country, England .... By chance I purchased a very tired and grimy looking camp stove yesterday (Wednesday 21st August). It was in a home made storage tin that had seen better days! Having parted with a fiver (£5) fpr it at an Antiques/bric-a-brac shop in Chepstow, Wales I headed home with my tin of rust and brass!! That is how I came across this fantastic web site and members as I tried to identify my prize and how to best get it working and/or restore it. I am not sure which way to go yet - full restoration with strip down, buff, shine, lacquer etc, or leave as it is (subject to a little work to improve its appearance and working capability! Here is a picture 'as found' I did have the sense to read several tips and advice sections in this forum before attempting to identify and try to start her burning. I believe in the old adage 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it! So I gave it a quick once over and could discern the triangle and abbreviation for Samuel Heath and Sons. Thanks to this forum I was then able to deduce the 4 & 63 to mean the month and year of manufacture. I am not sure if it is a Thermidor or other model as the decals have long since gone. I sprayed some Carb Cleaner around the burner and nozzle. Wiped this away along with crud and proceeded to try the pressure pump. It did not work at first but after removing the knob and shaft and applying a liberal amount of oil I suddenly felt the NRV free up. Paraffin was added to the bowl and Methylated spirit to the burner cup. To my surprise she started burning!!! The paraffin was over twenty years old and had been at the back of my garage for some time having been saved (for what purpose I do not know) from an old ladies garage some years before. I have started her up three times today and love it! The fuel when filled to two thirds of the reservoir bowl capacity lasted over 90 minutes at high burn! Incredible!! The flame spreader is from Primus model. I guess the original went missing years ago. I have included a photo of her burning (very old paraffin) All in all I am very pleased with my find and very impressed with the models owned by others on this forum. I look forward to taking her out and using her as intended! Would love any thoughts, feed back, constructive criticism, Cheers and regards, Brassmonkey.
