    Here is my find a year ago ,
    Was used for melting lead to make sinkers
    All I've done is clean it up and test fire.
    The enamel on top is good and the grates are super plenty of enamel on them to.
    Full restoration down the track later.

    WOW!!! :shock:

    That's a lucky find! :clap:

    I didn't realize the pressure gauge was so far down the wall of the tank on these guys.

    Was the CS22 ever sold outside of the Australia or New Zealand markets? Seems like they don't turn up anywhere else.

    Thanks for sharing, and congrats!!! :D/ :thumbup:

    Yes, the pressure 'tit' i.e. indicator (not really a gauge as such) does seem rather low on this compared with the contemporary lamps and lanterns. Notice also there's a 'flat' under the left-hand fuel pipe from the tank. That's possibly something to do with the Tillite pre-heater fitted to the X357 models - re-used tooling or something - although these flats have also been noted elsewhere on CPL but I can't locate it.

    I'd always imagined they CS22 was sold in the UK and elsewhere, but as you say, they seem to be seen more often downunder... :-&

    I hope you never admit to making sinkers on this beauty. Its the first one Ive ever seen although there is one other in the reference section

    The indicator would need to be in that position to make it visible in use.
    Does it make any difference having both burners going at the same time? Guess it would need a fair bit of pumping.
    The Coleman twin burners (suitcase) have the auxiliary burner which seems to be ok for keeping things warm or simmering but not much else.
    I really hope to find one of these someday although the optimus 22 is also on the wanted list.
