  1. Started on the fettle, its going to be a slow one as other work and work takes priority. One handle broke of as lifted up other seized, looking in the lid I appear to have an original set of spares in a plastic bag, first job will be sort the handles, and now found original un bleached paint heading to find a match beginning of November. Looking in the lid the label has instructions, have a copy of the operating ones which is about half way down, cant really make out the first half, they don't appear to agree with any in the manual. Does any one have a clear picture, I can work
  2. Have to be honest not even got mine ready to try in storage at the moment
  3. Many thanks, its some where on my must get it done list, although i take some off more seems to get added, and its the personal stuff thats not getting done☹️
  4. I assume you have hunted for steel stock suppliers Here's Wakefield link https://www.yell.com/s/steel+stockholders-wakefield.html Sheffield down the road may be a better option
  5. None meant to see if the company was still trading but usually remember at silly o clock
  6. Same thing happens with me, you about 2-3 hours away, are you looking for it formed or just ready for you to shape?
  7. Maybe but if a foot rest where would the carter sit? Is it hinged to go in that opening?
  8. We have a few steel workers around here in Wakefield, where are you based roughly?
  9. What is the white rectangle between the shafts?
  10. Clive I told my 91 year old dad that you would have the answer after i had posted the question, I need to source a panel to repair one edge
  11. Shaun Wooden top and metal legs, cant get to them till weekend and thanks
  12. I have bought 2 of these and they need a bit of work to be used without getting splinters. Does anyone have a specification for them, as yet I have not cleaned them one is painted so not sure what the timber is, I am guessing pine. Help please
  13. Plead ignorance or as CPO Pertwee would say "i have 14 witnesses to say I was in 3 other places when whatever happene"
  14. These seem to have a good range give them a call as they are helpful https://paintman.co.uk/
  15. Got home and started to look at it, would ask for advice, need a metal worker hopefully in Yorkshire to fix handles as they are rusted solid, also need to try and separate the handle plate from the body. The good news is there are a set of parts still in a plastic bag. The instructions are in the lid and parts which in the manual show parts are one piece. There are parts in the kit needing cleaned, just working bit by bit.
  16. No i haven't they weren't on the sale as far as I could see, don't think i have seen any on the market, think some one on here is looking for the plan to make them
  17. Went to collect the cooker today and as agreed some pictures of it, I think it was left outside since the catalogue was published, given help to get it to the car and not yet had a good look at it. The carrying handles need to be freed obviously the rust cleaned up, the pump handle seems slightly out of line with the pump. Looking for my copy of the manual to see how far to strip it down to get sand blasted. I note the HYDRA label doesn't look as though it was ever fitted. I think the original colour was deep bronze green but stand to be corrected. Want to get my other
  18. A Challenge, getting the No 2, No2 Modified and No12 stoves working Got a No3 which trying to decide what to do with
  19. That's what I thought, i have a few stoves and slowly getting them serviced and working looking at the picture I will do a photo survey first, see what's needed Fettle Box are good for washers etc.
  20. No don't have the funds for that kind of item especially when the extras added on top, they took a £50 deposit before you were allowed to bid so the costs were spread out for me, wasn't going much higher, think if advertised better a lot more interest.
  21. No worries will get it this week when I head over there
  22. No 1 British Army Stove, sold as MILITARY DEFENCE CAMP COOKER PRESSURE POT
  23. https://www.condoraviation.co.uk
  24. The auction house when i was paying and mentioned it did say going somewhere local
  25. I may post it on another thread once I get it back, I have a shot blaster lined up, getting to that stage i may need a small shot blasting rig myself for small i.e. briefcase size jobs
