    Well this is quite big, as I hope the kettle perched up on the top helps indicate:content:
    It is also in a fairly dreadful condition: cleaning off the upper surface of the tank revealing that someone in the dim and distant past seems to have tried to polish it with an angle grinder:shock::rage::shock:
    On the other hand it is in good working order, a good 'user', and No.6s aren't that common and certainly not with the original 4142 big burner and cast trivet.

    Oh dear me! I am doomed to search for one of these from now until eternity. :shock:

    @igh371 They sure are "hot" stoves!
    Funny thing is, the ones I found came with different burners; my "U" version has the same large burner as yours, the "V" one has a N°5 size burner and the "AR" has a regulated N°5 size burner. The combination of a large fount with the smaller burner (and especially with the regulated one) would mean one can keep a fairly large vessel hot all day without having to refill the stove. Would the smaller burners be factory fitted or later replacements? :-k Will have to check the library section!:lol:

    All the best,
