A period-correct cast-iron trivet. Yummy!
Excellent display! Great variety as well, showcasing the many different types of stoves that were available at the time.
That's a really exciting find Duane. You reckon the funnel is original?
I've got one of those cases as well - from the top of my head it's got a plague on the lid. Came with a really early variant of the '96. Going to...
Definitely a first for me! Many thanks for sharing!

That looks splendid! Love the retro feeling that you managed to create with the decals.
A nice find indeed! Are you going to fire it?

Your write-ups are a treat to watch John. The SRV with the built-in travelling cap is something I've not seen before.
Do you happen to know if...
Interesting to see yours includes a triangular windshield. Does anyone know when these were substituted for square ones?
Nice piece of machinery!...
I was just about to suggest that John. Immaculate write-up, detailed pictures and lots of tips 'n tricks. Yep, deserving of that!
