    @Barrett

    Can you post a photo of the trivet fitted to the stove?

    Cheers

    @Barrett

    You bloody Kiwis are all the same to me! :lol:

    Really, though, I sincerely apologise for my error, and invite @Garth to post a photo of the trivet fitted to the stove.

    Best regards

    Tony

    Good score @Garth and in nice condition including the burner.
    That trivet is unique. Could be a 1 off and well made too. I wonder if there are more around?

    Thanks, @Garth.

    I wonder if that is from something else altogether and just happens to fit the stove? :-k

    Cheers

    Probably is from something else or an aftermarket thing maybe but in the absense of a cast one it will do the job and look good doing it

    Starting to learn the differences between year models the very early one has patent embossed on top the 1913 has a bit of extra writing on side the 1914 has writing on 2 sides and something close to the newer type filler cap

    Strangely my junk shop raiding only netted silent burners apart from the hurlock ive still to see a primus#1 or any other roarer type even though they sold more must be a regional thing as roarers are thin on the ground in these parts
