    BERNZ-O-MATIC TX-500 PROPANE STOVE
    This one is not the best condition of my stoves but for $12 I couldn't pass it up! They also made a single mantle lantern in this style to. Easy to set up and light and handle folds up to make a convenient carry handle. Retro and cool looking way to go Bernz-o-matic....campinut...

    Is the red part a refillable bottle? Looks cool, thanks for sharing it.

    It's actually a red hollow cylinder that a propane tank slides into. My pic does not show that end but you attach regulator to bottle and slide in and screw the coupling or union together. Hope that explains it...campinut...

    Well, this is a pretty inocuous post. I wonder why my company's internet nanny blocked my access to it. They said it was Danish Pornography. Huh?

    Hello Dave, My newer propane bottles fit in my stove. Check to see if your cylinders on the lamp and stove are out of round. Mine slid in to 1/2 way up the bottle and stopped but I squeezed the cylinder and it slid right in. I am using a bernz-o-matic brand propane! There is not much tolerance thats why it has to be perfectly round....campinut...

    Are parts available?? Took the jet out, is there supposed to be a wad of wick material behind the jet?
