    Just received this last week and had a chance today to strip it down, fettle it and then get it cleaned up. After a good heat, quench and one of George's heat proof washers it ran like a top. This is my first Veritas but it appears to be a very well made stove.

    Judging from the lack of rust corrosion on the pot rests, this stove did not see too much use.

    This is a superb cleanup and polish job. Beautiful!!!

    Are you planning to restore the tin can also?

    Hi Dan, nice fettle!
    Hi Yonadav, this family of one-pint British stoves had Aluminium pot legs, which are light and very corrosion resistant. There was lots of Al. available in the UK post-WW 2, when steel was rationed. The Landrovers had Al. bodies for the same reason.

    This thread gives some background on these British stoves:

    Hi Dan, This post is also well worth reading as Bryan gives interesting background information:

    It might also encourage you to check out the jet aperture diameter fitted to your lovely stove.

    Best Regards,
    George.
