    and possibly the best control on a grill I have seen.

    A really well made stove, considering it's age.

    Very nice. Do you not have the windshield flaps that hang on the ends of the trivets?

    No, they are missing. So is the grill pan - but not the grill grid.
    I was going to make side shields but they look flimsy and ineffective. How do they fix in the upright position? Or are they supposed to just hang down?

    Thanks.
    I am currently using a big blue hinged windshield that I made many years ago for a Coleman double burner, but it would be great to make some original Tilley flaps. Any info on them would be much appreciated.

    Hi, I have a Titan with the shields but not the grill pan here for £10 if it is any use as spares. A heavy lump so expensive to post..!

    Thanks Mike, but I will make my own shields. Incidentally, where are you?

    Do you still have the Titan? I want a spare one to try and convert to low pressure. I don't really need the red/white case if it would make it cheaper to send. Hermes should not cost much I am in South West Scotland.

    One onservation about the grill - the toast always burns on the right side as there is a hot spot. Every Titan I have owned or seen is the same. I guess it is a design facet, though when one examines the grill tube, there is definitely a change in the mesh pattern around where the hot spot is. Just need to turn the toast quick!
