    A Radius 10E. Putting an exact date on a stove is always difficult, especially with a Radius. However, as the stove's marked LTD with arabic writing, which came in the late 1950's I'm inclined to think that's the date of manufacture.

    The stove is in good condition. The tank has some scratches & marks on the underside of the tank. Has the silent burner stove (SMolson has this burner marked as the 10/36), pilot lighter, removable pot support & an enameled (over steel) frame. Also comes with the typical greenish Radius white letter spindle key. Interestingly also has the word 'Patent' written on it.

    It's amazing how little parts this stove consists of. (not counting NRV & filler cap).

    Stove on its own. Slightly bend fuel connect tube.

    That typical Radius spindle key with the white letters.

    Fuel tank's in good condition. Luckily there were no dents.

    & lastly the burner with the pilot flame.

    I don't think there's a better stove around than the Radius 10 (&12 for that matter). They have a large tank, will simmer great & also have a great heat output. Only drawback is that because these were made to use indoors, there's no windshield. (but easily manufactured). Once it's dark, I'll put this stove to the test.

    Regards,
    Frank

    Lovely Radius home-cooking stove, Frank.

    Radius stoves are always well made. I love the fuel tanks, very well made and plated with a nice clear logo on the end.

    Like all such Radius stoves and lanterns, it has the Radius patented combination filler cap/safety release valve and also their simple fuel gauge.

    I like the way that the tank fits to the stove frame - very clever.

    Your stove is well photographed and appears to be complete with original parts.
