    Nooope, not like Presscall's! Yours is a discus, but still might be a SVEA (or a Primus, or an Optimus or....... :whistle: ;) ). Anyway, time for you to find out what you found!!! :lol:

    Best regards,

    Hi Kerry, if you want to keep the patina, I'd suggest to start with warm soapy water and a not-to-stiff brush or similar. Teeth brush for hard to get spaces. Might go the same route with my latest find :-k , after all, these stoves lived a life! ;)

    Best regards,
