    Here is my favorite little Radius 42. I got it without the flame spreader, so I fitted it with a BD Minicap. It turns out to be the best of my small petrol stoves. Real fun to use. The flame is so powerful that I have to raise the pot quite high while brewing coffee to let it simmer a while.

    I painted the rusted inside of the tin with heat resistant silver paint.

    Apart from the mini cap thats just like mine right down to the silver paint. I thought mine had been nickel plated which was peeling off before I painted it but from other posts here I now believe it was paint. The person that gave me this stove had run it from new on car petrol some of it leaded from new but it still ran fine.
    Its a good idea to turn the stove so the control and filler point outwards as they can overheat when simmering.
