    Hi, I thought I would share some images of a recent acquisition with you:

    This is a Svea 126, a two pint collapsible stove, and this one I believe, dates from the 1960s... but I am willing to be corrected.

    The box looks a bit scruffy!

    But nearly all the bits are there,

    Here they all are:

    ..and here are a couple of shots of the assembled stove:

    Very nice KP, very nice

    It doesn't really matter what the tin looks like, they were never made to last, it's what's inside that counts - that was made to last !

    Hi Kerophile

    Any ideas on halting the rusting process of the tins without ruining the remaining paint detail?

    Hi Trevor, If you read my recent post on "Stove Restoration - Ironwork" You will see a brief mention of boxes. I have tried lacquer on a couple of boxes after rust treatment but I am waiting for a satin finish lacquer to become available.

    Hi Evil, Didn't I say that there are two of them and the other one is better?

    Life just keeps getting better .......and so much better than the alternative!

    Regards,
    Kerophile.
