    Picked this little girl up recently, and she exceeded my expectations on condition.
    Not a lover of Radius, because of stress fractures, in the past.
    I have used many so-called Heat Resistant paints before, on trivets, and all have turned out to be crap, but this can I have pictured,is the best I have come across.
    Cure it in the oven, or on top of the wood burner, or just firing up the stove will cure it also.
    Picture 8, shows the hardware store outlet, label, where it would have been originally purchased ?
    Thanks Kerophile.

    Hi Brewster, the Svea 106 is a very similar stove to the Radius 17, but was made by a different Manfacturer, Max Sievert. Both Radius and Sievert were Swedish companies.

    Both the Radius 17 and Svea 106 are excellent 1.75 pint kerosene stoves, fitted with roarer burners, and the majority of parts are interchangeable.

    You can make replacement "legs" for your Svea 106. Alternatively you can buy a new set from one of the CCS members, loco7stove, who makes them.

    Hope this helps.
    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.
