    Hello dear colleagues!

    Mr. Soerensen presented me this nice stove and I've made a stand for it because the original is lost.

    Video is here



    The top plate was cut from 8 mm steel sheet

    Legs are a 4x40 steel band

    Machined brass nuts as usually

    Temporary changed tank cap to a Optimus 8R's because haven't the original washers of radius with 7 holes...

    Fill the full tank of kerosene

    Hi @gideon , nice work! This stove stand will last for generations! Nice performance of the burner too, Radius made high quality stoves.

    Best regards,

    Wim

    Hi @gideon Great work and a lovely domestic or basecamp stove!
    The flame patterns are really beautiful. I have always been impressed by Radius stoves, and particularly their regulated silent burners. They remain the best of the bunch IMO.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Thank you Wim, i think so. The stand must be working thru the centuries! Also R-10 just need to change 2 washers. I'll mashine it of polyurethane and show it here. I think this stove stand is the strongest ever built.

    Hello Kerophile! Thank you for your support, it really helps me. I'm going to do a "trip" design of this r-10 also, i've just find a good aluminium chest for it. Happy to me, the stand and the chest can be changed at the moment, just twist off the 2 nuts.

    +1 on Kerophiles remarks.

    Well designed and well made. You put it to better use, than I would be able to.

    A very fine piece of work. Is the pan ring a survivor from the original stove or a useful find?

    Hello John! Thank you for your kind words. The foundry iron pan ring not the original (the original made of steel and have 8 rays), it is the artefact from far USSR past. There was a kerosene burners called "kerogas" like this 12157242.jpg
    found just this ring and takes from trashcan thinking it can be useful. it was waiting for that hour and it comes.

    Yes, i think it's really the best one for internal household using. Also it was with me at my outdoor trip in small case. Great power and perfect flame! I'm a proud user of 111th and 535 model of optimus and see this type of kerosene burner is the best.

    Thoroughly and capitally!
    No chance to overturn it accidentally (or even specially).
    Perfect simmering, and full power flame also - nice and pure.
    2..3 rotatable round washers with a cut off segment can be the fixators for the pan ring (to replace the wires) IMHO

    I was on my way to make something similar for my 10AF/12AF left hand burner unit when I stumbled on a boxed 12AF and found it had space for a spare unit in the box :D
    Your unit is in reality a 12AF right hand unit but that doesn't make a real difference for function and first priority on common stoves is to get a working condition.

    Great job and sturdy enough to hold a 25 gallon pot. Your welds look great. This is obviously not your first project.
