    The Eezy-Fyre stoves are Australian made, not common and have a patented burner that is unique. They were made from about 1941 to 1951. The tri-clawed flame spreader which is usually marked clearly in large letters EEZY-FYRE was the same shape across the years and the two models and two variations. Some early models also had a flame spreader that was not marked.

    My double burner model came with only one flame spreader and the single burner Eezy-Fyre came with the unmarked version (see photos below). I have used this latter one as a template to construct a second flame spreader for the double burner stove.

    I have tested it and it works satisfactorily so I'm pleased.

    I started with a section from a piece of 10 mm thick bar and cut it with a disk on the angle grinder. Then used a grinding disk to shape the underside to resemble the template fitting. Not perfect but good enough.

    Nice work, Iain.
    It's certainly solid enough and producing a good flame pattern. :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:
