    Came with two burners. Flame ring is a bit wonky:

    This has been apart before. For one, the spirit cup is very loose, and two, @Ed Winskill noted earlier in the thread that the windscreen was on upside down. Not only that, they installed it upside down when they had it apart, and now it won't come off until I take it apart again. I had a few fettle kits come in the mail yesterday, so no biggie:

    Well done
    Looking forward to the flame shots
    Edited: Had just seen your ‘45 fettle - and that was somehow still lingering in my head, when I wrote this ;-)
    Looks like very narrow tolerances - should be fixable with no visual trace afterwards.

    No problem, I wondered.

    I was thinking a lot about buying that one, partly because of the instructions but it was way too expensive.

    I offered $40 less than they were asking, and they accepted it. But yes, it was still pricey.

    Tank clearly marked “Radius Ltd.” so post 1939/40 and before 1962 when production stopped.

    I did read here... Tank clearly marked “Radius Ltd.” so post 1939/40 and before 1962 when production stopped.
    ...that, "The first “slots-and-hatch” wind shield can be seen in the 1920 Radius catalogue and the second “slots-and-drop” in the 1956 catalogue, both on this site. A type of Radius 21 normally associated with the first model of wind shield is older than one associated with the second model, and so on. I admit this method can be very deceptive since loose parts such as a wind shied can be shifted between stoves, spares bought could be of another model then the original etc."

    So, possibly between 1956, and 1962, if that windscreen came with it.

    Hi @The Warrior . I think you are likely correct in that age range. Have you examined the margins of the Instructions, that came with you stove, to see if there is a Printer’s code (which might include a date code)?

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    There was this. Perhaps 1951, if these are the instructions that came with it:

    As always, thanks for the info, appreciate it. Applying the 51-62, and the “slots-and-hatch” wind shield showing up in 56, I'll just call it 56, haha.
