    Welcome to the forum Brent.

    How about a picture showing the stove you're trying to identify rather than ones you're not? ;) :lol:

    Hi Brent,

    looks like a very nice camping stove, all it seems to be needing is a good clean, and it'll give you very good service! You are very lucky to find these stoves for such a ridicule price, I hope to have your kind of luck one day 8) :lol:

    Regards, and welcome to the forum,

    Wim

    Hi Brent.

    Whay is the Green Kerosene Cooker Photo that you put on this question first called and does anyone know when they were made?

    I have one but dont know anything about it except manufacturer address is 610 New North Road, Auckland. NZ

    Any help and answers would be much appreciated.

    Cheers
