BR49A which was lit once then stored away.
Wow thats a stunner very nice
Beautiful, Stuart. I take it that lighting it was not a happy experience for the original owner?
Judging by the amount of soot that was on the burner I guess the previous owner had one unsuccessful attempt at lighting and thought better of trying again.
That's a prize piece you must have thought Christmas comes twice this year.
please do a vid of lighting one as ive fettled one and am keen to give it a go!
@fishfish they are fairly straight forward to light, you just need to make sure the preheater shroud gets nice and hot before you drop it down into position. There's the little hooks that allow it to be fixed in the raised position whilst it warms up, once it's warm, drop it down and it will draw air properly and preheat the burner. If it's dropped down too soon then the flame will not be intense enough to heat the burner, it may even self extinguish.
fishfish - I have never actually tried lighting a BR49 / BR49A. But the advice from Matthew above sounds like a good tip.
I literally whimpered when I saw this and I expect I'll dream about it too later. What a find!!
