    I picked up this interesting stove for $5 cdn :D . Japanese stove maker Rinnai made this model for Eatons of Canada. Not sure of the age of this piece, but it was in pretty good shape - just a little cleanup required on the burners. I figure its got to be from the 60's or early 70's. I got lucky as this has the original box and instructions. It has an interesting air-shutter on the right hand side which really increases the flame intensity. Well, just another stove to keep the others company. :thumbup:

    Eatons was the main competition to The Hudson's Bay Company in Canada and carried very nice merchandise. I don't know if the are still around or not. The stove should be a good one.

    Eaton's went out of business in 1999 after 130 years of business in Canada.

    RM, dang it! I thought I heard something to that effect. I lived in Calgary for 3 years and shopped at Eatons regularly. Is The Bay still around?

    Yes, the Bay is still around but only a few stores left in Calgary. They don't sell stoves or camping gear anymore.
