    Hi! I bought this well working Radius Ltd 6. It works great on HVO100. It had a little old fuel in, and according to my experience, when there is fuel in the tank, it works great without a lot of fettling. All of the stoves and lamps what i bought with fuel in didn't needed replacement of the pump leather, NRV is working as it suppose and the burner the same. No exception for this stove. I don't think it was used a lot, judging by the legs what are not so much corroded. The pricker is in place and cleaning and stopping is working perfectly. Any idea when it was made? Efter 1938, but how much efter? 1940? It appears to be like the one Kerophile has presented, except the control wheel is different. ( the one presented here Radius No.6 from 1940s.)
    Have a great day!

    Nice looking stove. You couldn't ask for a better flame.

    Hi @Francisc Masec The stove is a nice Radius No.6,

    The Company operated from 1913 until 1963, and the stove you show is later than around 1939/40 when they adopted the Ltd designation.

    So later than around 1939 and no later than 1963.

    Your stove does not have the “sunken” or recessed filler. This was introduced on the Radius No, 6 stove in the 1950s, Read through this thread for the details:

    Radius No:6 - c:a 1950's

    So it looks like your Radius No.6 was made before the mid-1950s.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.
