    Pyro Patent stove in very original condition and featuring all of the small detail points shown in the illustration on 1910 Operating Instructions leaflet. The small detail key points are the 3-layer rivetted pressure release rod end, the flame shroud between the burner and priming spirit ring, and the special but unbranded burner with original external fitting flame spreader.

    @Spiritburner Thanks Ross, one of your 'special' pump tube clamp washers is an essential component in there:thumbup: Ian.

    I really, really, really like this stove! :mrgreen:

    Flat simple strong legs/pot stands, roarer, shaped trivet, air release at top, venting away from user, heatproof material on key and nicely angled pump tube.

    Fulfills all requirements except perhaps shut-off from the tank :-k
    I'll forgive it that...... :p

    Alec.

    @igh371 That does indeed look like a very complete example of the 1910 Pyro. Those instructions came with the stove I bought but my stove doesn't match the illustrations, yours does. Mine is probably a later example. My guess is they just sent the same instructions with later model stoves rather than reprinting them with each minor change.

    @z1ulike you were so lucky to get the operating instructions Ben, they may well be the only surviving set! I think these Pyros are ideal for using in a garage or workshop. Put kettle on, prime and leave while you get on with whatever, and that's it - just keep 1/2 an eye out for when the water boils:D Ian
