    Hi here are some photos of a Radius No.5 stoves that I have had for some time. It came to me in almost un-used condition and had obviously been well looked after during its life.
    I have changed the washers and tidied it up. Here are some photos.

    Note: The outer silent burner cap shown is a generic replacement.

    Radius made some great stoves. Their build-quality was second to none; you only have to look at the solder joints between lega and tank on this stove to see the care that they took with their products.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Indeed remarkable craftsmanship in the Radius. Wish though that they had one like this but with removable pot stand......that would have been great!
