    Hi guys, found this classic Handi works stove set up in the ceiling, after some googling came across your site, it is a bit rough but reckon it would clean up well.

    I'm on the way....
    If it was keeping the ceiling up it's worth putting it back.

    Other than that I've no idea, there are probably more local members to yourself with better knowledge of Handy gear who may know what these have recently sold for at auction.

    I f you don't already have a Zombie apocalypse kit then you might consider getting it back to working order just in case, at which point we'll gladly help with it's restoration.

    Nice oven stove combo BTW.

    The box looks to be a stove top oven that would sit on one of the stoves. The stoves are Australian so I don't know much about them. You can see another Handiworks double stove of Doc Marks here. In any event they look to be in good shape and could probably be returned to functionality pretty easily.

    Handi based these range stoves on the ones made by Svea.

    It’s worth restoring. I’ll make you an offer if you want to sell.

    Cheers

    The two stoves pack up into the box for transport.

    G'day @fasteddie75

    That's a nice piece of kit. I have no idea what it would be worth but the components were designed to fit together. The two stoves could be used separately or bolted together with bolts and wing nuts.
