    Welcome to CCS and I’m most grateful for your fascinating input on the topic with all of that detail. SAFA still going and with original tooling for the base eh? The group boil-ups sound like a lot of fun.
    When last I looked, pretty well. Good reason to get the Thermette out of storage soon for a boil-up.

    They are about NZ$200 new. Cheaper second hand on your NZ trade forum.

    Thanks very much for the link. I like the gentle, non hard-sell tone of the advertising,
    which answered a question forming as to why I’d pay double for the copper version. Certainly the copper one I have has ‘paid off in the long run’ in that it’s lasted well!

    If you're in the USA you can pick one up for the buy-it-now price of $99 on eBay. With $18 shipping it's a pretty good deal.
