    Hi all,

    This is a gasoline fed parabolic heater that is 3 in 1……… a table heater, a wall heater and it can also serve as a stove. It has a flexible and adjustable parabolic disc that is changeable in 90 degrees. I believe this is a transition version of the 1926 and 1932 Succes heater from the Paris company of Guenet & Abbat. Looks very similar to the 1932 with the same fount and wire guard/outer burner cap, but the burner has a few discrepancies. Michel Binard also show here in the French gallery, a kerosene No.178 version of this heater, with a pricker unit below the parabolic disc.

    Do you know how many bits and pieces it takes to assemble a French heater/radiator? Yes, you are right …….it takes seventy.
    I was lucky to have the before pics as reference, when I tried to assemble the heater after cleaning and fettling. I managed to fit all the parts so I believe the heater is complete. It is still running in my shed, although we got a very unusual warm Swedish evening now (tropical night +20C).

    The 1932 catalogue image comes from Neil.

    Hello Conny
    Yes exactly the same as mine, except for the needle's command.
    I see that the tropical temperatures gives you very much energy :clap:
    here we have up to 30 degrees, too much warm to work in the barn
    I prefer the sea baths and sailing
