    Got myself one of these today!

    I know I said in another post that it was in perfect condition, but it's not in überperfect condition as some of the other stoves here. The tin is not all shiny and perfect, but the stove itself is pretty nice!

    Three cleaner needles
    A little can
    A wrench

    And I love the fact that there is a little door on the burners windshield! :content:

    As you can see, it has the shooting star logo, so if I'm not mistaken that means its made before the 60's right?

    Just realized that The picture quality wasn't that bad after all, just my Opera Turbo that made the pics really bad!

    Jim: It's silver! :oops: :D/

    Hi Stoveuser Jr. I think you have a fairly early Radius No.21, perhaps from the 1930/40s. Have a look at this post:

    Compare your stove and tin with these photos:

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    And what a nice detail that door is.
    Now both my son and my son-in-law have his kind of windshield door. The in-law is kidding me all the time, as he knows I really like that detail :content:

    But now doubt you got a nice stove.
    Looking forward to see and hear it burning.

    Best regards
    Stoveuser
