45 is a fine stove! Where that pot support is from?
Industrial lightbulb cover.. it had a glass tube in it it fits perfectly on this old battle axe
any idea what size jet is in your stove? nice big blue flame
Oh yeah creative thinking! Main goal is to get stove into use!
Hi @pjs your Op.45 is looking good, with a powerful flame pattern!
It is a real old-timer, dating from the 1920s. They don’t make them like they used to!
0.35 I’m pretty sure
Thank you! I’m just tickled pink on getting it running.. I got it a garage sale I paid 5 dollars for a bunch of metal files with box.. and was told that had to go with them..
Hi pjs many thanks for the additional photos. Please will you add a photo of the marking on the underside of the tank.
A great old stove. You will have a lot of fun with this one and others that will masteriously come.
Well done. A big welcome to you and don’t be afraid af asking questions.
Hi @pjs many thanks for providing photos of the maker’s marks from the bottom of your Op. 45.
Great to think that your “new” stove will soon be 100 years old!
It's a bit funny feeling to light up stove which is around 100 years old or older. Sometimes they just need some kerosene to NRV's leather/cork pip & tank lid, oil to pump leather and they are ready for use. I always wonder when I light up 'old stove' who was first user of the stove and how they used the stove and lived on that time.
