    Propane, to be sure, but I have never seen another stove quite like it. Basically a 2 lb. propane bulk tank with stove permanently attached.

    It's a little bigger and heavier than your average backpack stove, but may see a little use in the canoe or back porch.

    I found a friendly propane man willing to fill the tank, it's the old style reverse internal thread filler, but the tare wt. is clearly marked on the tank and it's in very good shape.

    Here's a 71 with it for scale. I've been using it in the garage as a cooker/heater of gas stove parts!

    Mmm, I didn't take a real good pic of it, but in the top view, you will see a fill valve with plug installed. It's the "old style" fill valve, but I did find a way to get it filled up. Just like you would a gas grill tank or RV.

    Can you not remove the burner and get it filled that way?
    Thats how it would be done in nz.

    We seen one on a auction site and googled and up came the photos of your one.

    We're getting the one here.

    Also seen on another site one sold on ebay for in excess of $400US dollars.
    Thats crazy..

    Funny how old topics resurface from time to time.

    For the benefit of anyone re-visiting this again, HERE'S a link to a contemporary Sievert catalogue in which the model 925 features.

    I saw one of those bottles at the local swap meet several weeks ago, but I figured no-one would fill it...

    They only wanted $5 for it.

    Used to have a newer version of this in the 70's. The burner on mine was removeable, tank was 2.2 Kgm (about 4.5 lbs)! Most propane outlets could fill it with a special adaptor that they had. As the burner was high pressure, it really worked well in windy weather when camping.

    I inherited one of these stoves a few years ago and really like it a lot. none of the local propane dealers will fill it since it's very out-of-date and doesn't have an OPD valve, and there is no way to add one. so, I refill it myself using a refillable 14.1oz propane tank, 5 tanks= approx. 70.5 ounces (2 kilos) fills the stove up and a full tank lasts a really long time....

    I had never seen one, then I was offered one from a bloke I deal with regularly.
    The next week he had another.
    So Norm, got one.

    I picked one of these up a while back and just got around to trying it out. The tank is a little out-of-date (1967) so I had to fill it myself. To fill it you unscrew the burner and screw on the adapter that's handily provided. Then use the burner control knob to open the tank. There is a spit valve you can open to determine when it's full. It also has a tare weight stamped into the tank (8 lbs 10 oz).

    There is only about 1/4 turn between off and full blast so getting a simmer is kind of delicate. Otherwise it works well and should burn almost for ever on a full tank. I haven't tried in in the wind but I think the windshield should work pretty well.

    Hi folks, OP here. So happy to revisit this thread and see other examples of a nifty stove. I need to get mine filled, it finally ran out after 10 years of fairly regular use. Wish me luck!

    @short tip too bad you're on the other side of the country. If you we're nearby you could stop by my place and I'd refill it for you. Since these tanks are out of date getting it filled will be a challenge.

    There's one of these available near me on Craigslist. The price they're asking is well beyond anything I'm willing to spend, but if someone else is interested I'm willing to facilitate.

    Thanks @z1ulike ! There are a few local folks who should be able to take care of me, I'll know tomorrow. One fellow told me the OPD is no issue, that new tanks require it but they still service legacy tanks. It's in real nice shape, no rust, so we shall see. The fellow I got this from said it came from a '61 VW Camper Bus.
