    It looks like a French Selus stove like this one.

    Thanks for the quick response. I do have a couple of small Selus camping stoves but have found that the fonts suffer badly from pressure cracks. Does this stove have a steel tank - I tink some suggested it might in the earlier thread. Also, where is the fuel filler cap?

    regards

    Yes to the steel tank.

    Mine’s HERE. Fuel filler screw is in the base, early Radius No.42-style.

    The brass-tank Selus certainly does have a problem with stress cracking. One out of two was a result for me.
