    I got this 426b a few years ago. It was on OfferUp and the only pic of it was in its box buried under other boxes in someone's garage. The pic wasn't clear but I thought I could make out the 426b on the box. So I took a chance and bought it. Unfortunately the box just fell apart but the stove was is good condition. Just needed a cleaning, a fuel cap seal and a new pump leather. 70D23B31-8731-4AB8-8BBD-7AD7015852E4.jpeg

    Did the stand come with it?
    I have one of those stands, later aluminum style, but I'm never sure I have set it up right.
    Seems that there should be slots in the stove bottom to positively access the ''prongs '' on the ends. More of a 413 stand than a 425.
    I have 2 425s and 2 413s. One 425 tank and generator is good. Other one leaks. One 413 tank won't hold pressure, the other one held it only briefly. It did strike for a test burn, but then fizzled out.
    In the meantime, I got a Stansport Propane Adapter. ""Generator'' shaft is too long for the 425s, but fits the 413s nicely. Set up for the 1 Lb Coleman green propane bottle, but I have a rubber hose adapter to connect it with a 20 pound tank. It gets too hot set up that way. Burned the bacon today, before I could pull it off the hot side.

    One day I hope to find a 3-burner.

    Oh cool. I just grabbed one a couple weeks ago myself. I like the three burners for using the oven. Way better than a two burner. Now all I need is to find a stand like you have there.

    Actually that stand came with another 426b that was in sad shape I bought it because I wanted the stand. When I picked it up it also had the propane adapter,2 cans of fuel, and a set of chef trays as a surprise. The OP had cut the top rim of the stove and drilled holes so in the sides so the trays would fit.

    I found my stand in a thrift store [Savers] that sold stuff by the pound. Metal wares went for $1.69/Lb.
    I also found a '60s Girl Scout mess kit [complete but the wingnut] and some other odd stuff there, other pots and pans, ... a 2 qt Stanley Thermos in OD.
    Sadly, they folded.
