    I have a Coleman Max Xpedition Twin Dual Burner stove which I love but I'm nearly out of Coleman Powermax cartridges. I've been in touch with the Coleman UK spares agent and the cartridges are in really short supply over here in England. So I've been trying to track down the official Coleman adaptor (Part No 9705-725) but Coleman have stopped supplying them to the UK and will not supply any more.

    So I'm asking if anyone in the USA or Canada has one they want to sell to me or could buy one and ship it to me. I realise this may be expensive but I really want to keep using the stove and see this as a worthwhile investment on my part. I have quite a few stoves and lamps if someone wants to do a trade instead of cash.

    Thanks for your time.

    Big Si, your profile is private. How do I send a PM.

    You know you can refill those powermax cartridges. The stove will work much better than with the adapter.

    Click on his name ('Big Si') at the top left of one of his posts. That brings up his user profile. Click on 'Start Private Topic' at the top of that. That ought to do the trick...

    I did David, it is set to private.
    But, Hazet said to use the drop down below his avatar in one of his posts, I will try that.

    That's odd, I've just sent Si a test PT with no problems at all. Nothing back yet to say he's received it, mind - he's probably up his allotment...

    ...and I've just heard back from Si - no problems. :?

    Ken, I have two thoughts on this.

    First is that David has Moderator's privileges and that might make his access different to yours.

    Second is that you have had trouble in the recent past with your account settings and this might be another incorrect setting. If so, a PT to Ross should cure it.

    There is a tick-box in each user's Display Settings labelled 'Private Profile'.
    If ticked then the public profile of the member can not be accessed and also other members can not send that member a PT.
    From your experiment it looks like Moderators can do so even if it is ticked.
