    Hiya Stove People,

    I could not believe my luck when I was offered the stove pictured as a buy now for NZ$175.00, on TradeMe. It appears to be in very good condition, the interior is painted black (may be a repaint), the windshields have chrome plating, and also the flame rings. The spanner and "Y" tube feeding the burners are also chrome plated. This work appears to have been done after purchase new.

    You SCORED! The 22 and any variation of it is near the top of my favorite stove list.

    Just noticed something about your case,or rather the slotted hole where the spindle enters on both of mine theres a simple hole to put the spindle through which meant a bit of burner re positioning on my latest one to easily connect spindle to burner
