    Just found this at an ARC Thrift Store for under $15.00. Should have some fun getting her up and burning.

    That’s a great score!

    so I know they say those will run on auto fuel but I don’t recommend it. The valves on mine were gunked up bad and required extensive work to clear. It is one of my favorites now that it works though, they’re extremely entertaining to light.

    Agreed. I have a lot of Coleman gas and will use that.

    Last year, or so, someone here had a hard time getting anyone interested in buying one. It sits in my collection.

    i’d love to have one cause i’d cook on it. the two burners are handy when making spaghetti and other goods where you need to get two things going in different pots.

    my grail stove is an Optimus 22B but i’d settle for a 523.

    deadly perforated tank - repaired...
    stove in use
    imo - it is the best (from the popular) two burner construction
    except - "cleaning nedle" mover handle
    if jamed - easly could be broken (in second example - "i have two")
