    Hi, here are some photos of an early Radius No.5S:or.
    I acquired this particular stove from Deal in Kent in 2004, but I was cleaning it up today:

    The Radius pan-ring is interesting. It is fabricated from sheet steel but you can see how it has been influenced by earlier cast-iron pan-ring design. Radius moved to the more conventional, simpler design of pressed-steel pan-ring in later years.

    The final photograph shows this Radius No.5S:or alongside my Radius No.1C. The tanks of the two stoves are almost idential, suggesting thet they are near-contemporaries.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Nice one George! :clap: How does it perform? What strikes me with the Swedish stoves, they all claim to be "the best", "the original" or what have you. :-k Ah well, I suppose they all were top quality and afaik these were invented in Sweden after all!

    Regards,
