    I noticed that I had not put into the Reference Gallery the Radius No. 42 that I had repaired here. So here it is.

    It has "Patent Sokt" stamped on it, and the Radius "shooting star" (therefore pre late 1930s).

    The tin was very rusty and needed re-painting.

    This is the control key I made for it.

    I re-read the history of your amazing repair. Well done and I reckon this model stove is a classic, though they darn well tend to burn their tin as I found out. I’m amazed at how industrious fettlers can be and your repair is right up there. Nice to see this old girl still burning and burn well they do.
