    Hi stovies here are some pics, and a write up on my latest addition, a Parasene half pint stove with full size silent burner, which you may remember it from the stove forum, today I have finished the fettle on it.

    The above is the stove in mention, what was shown in the stove forum prior to the fettle.

    Here in the above is the Parasene fully fettled, I don't want to go into detail on the fettle, as I have decided to show it and do a little write up, of it in the reference gallery.

    In the above pic is of the pan ring, which is the only part with the makers name on it, it says Parasene but due to the rust that was on it, it can hardly be seen.

    The above is of the only decal on the stove tank, which states Entirely British made.

    The above pic is of the tank base, I have not cleaned this part or polished it, as is shows a nice piece of history, written on it is 24/6, I am certain it is the price of the stove in old money 24 shilling and sixpence, cleaning the base of the tank would have removed the old price of the stove.

    Here is a pic of the filler cap with built in safety valve, there is no separate pressure release key on this stove, you have to unloosen the filler cap to release the pressure, the next pic will show how this system works.

    In the above pic if you look very closely at the inner thread, you will see a slot cut into it, this allows the pressure to escape more efficiently.

    In the above pictures show three flame shots, the first being the preheating/priming flame, and then one at full belt and the last a close up of it at a medium/simmer.

    Hi Brian. A very nice fettle to your stove. Great that your were able to save what was left of the decal, nice flame shots as well.

    Hi Rick, thank you for your words of compliments, I am glad I have not damaged the decal during the fettle, it is such a shame if they get damaged or removed, to me they are a major character to the stove or lamp.

    Mr Optimus great restoration on the stove. I like the restoration of the silent burner cap. Question though how come your flames so "Green" in color? Just curious.

    Hi Viscara and Gunsoo, thank you both for your compliments.
    Viscara, the colour is very common, when a stove has been really cleaned and not used for a long time, it is to do with the copper in the brass after 10 mins it will disappear.
