    Finally got a really huge suitcase meths burner and had to read instructions 3 times before i could unfold it (stove version of rubics cube) its definitely unfired Robat and later Skope Cookquiks were usually quite basic with what looked like a baked bean can for fuel tank this must have been an expensive one its very heavy and a hideous green colour id like to run it but think it best unused instructions very informative says to use wool for spindle packing guess that would be cheaper than graphite and abundant in this country.

    If i find enough of these we may be allowed a nz section as im discovering new models almost daily skope made at least a dozen types so far only the one zip model the cookquik was extremely common in its day but survivors are rare these days

    Hiya StoveHeads,

    This is amazing! Skope as a company still exist in Christchurch, NZ. The name seems like it is from the 1960's. I think I will call them, and make inquiries, given I live here.

    Cheers

    It would be great to research as i now know they made many models this one is one i had never seen and is quite a precision thing it must have been a big task getting it all to fit together as it does

    Do we have enough different stoves for a nz section?
    I have 3 nz marketed stoves
    A hivis orange cookquick
    A zip which looks amazingly similar to a PW stove this is gasoline fuel
    And a Primus based kero 2 burner in a tall but narrow case

    I was really asking if it was worth asking rather than suggesting it be so

    Good stuff. In the new year I will add to this little collection, a couple from Skope and a nicely put together carrycase job with legs and twin Primus (early) adjustable burners made in Auckland.
