    One of these stoves is not a Simplex but as it is in the same family, I decided to post it in this category. Maybe the title of this folder should be updated with Duplex.
    Anyway, this is a very nice stove but one thing is wrong with it. The left tank is not original and has probably been replaced. It is visible that it has no air release knob and the NRV is not accessible from the bottom. So this tank is of a later model.

    And, another question. Should it be "left pumping"?
    The image from an old catalogue shows it should be but it might as well only be a mistake when drawing the sketch.

    Love those stoves Bo, could you swap the left hand tank on the duplex with the tank that's on the simplex so that the two on the duplex match? Then the odd one would be on the single burner or are the tanks different dimensions? :-k

    Well, that was exactly what I was planning. But I find the Simplex tank was inferior and even not the same style. As you can se there is no cavity in the tank where the filler hole is placed.
    So because of this I decided to keep them this way until I find a tank that is right. If this time ever will come.

    Hello Bo

    Duplex left tank not original, simplex tank inferior - but still two gorgeous stoves.
    Lovely castings and as longilily said, great way of including the word Svea in the leg castings.
