    A fine looking range, no spirit cups, looks like it uses tilley priming clips. The regulators handles look annoyingly short.

    hopefully more photos to come.

    No such luck, this went for a pretty penny on trademe last night. The seller offered to send more photos but they have not arrived as yet.

    Not regulators as such - they operate the prickers only.

    The flame size will be controlled by the pressure in the tank.

    Now if I could only find one in the UK... =P~

    So to simmer on one burner and have the other on full you would need a simmer mat of some sort (asbestos back then I guess)? Or both burners will run at the same temp due to tank pressure. Have I got that right? If so it seems this is a case of rare because it is not that good. A bit like Elle MacPherson, looks good but can she cook? (to be fair she probably can).

    I don't know for sure, but I suspect rare because they would have been very expensive when new so not many sold. At the time, the CS56 was about twice the price of an equivalent Primus or whatever. The CS22 is more-or-less two CS56s i.e. two CS56 burners (the expensive part) but only one tank, so I'm guessing it would have been a very costly item. Thus, supply and demand comes into play - low supply and great demand, hence high prices. Having said that, I can't remember ever seeing one come up on eBay or, in fact, anywhere... :cry:

    I've no idea how it was controlled, but I guess your suggestion of a simmer mat would have been about right...

    Thanks, Ian - if I saw it, I didn't win it. :cry:

    Any idea of the selling price..?

    Not a clue, David, though obviously more than I could afford. I remembered taking the pics off ebay as prior to that sale, pictures of the CS22 were thin on the ground.
