Was so stoked to get this fool up stove! I believe it will be my new road trip stove.

More pictures please. What type of fuel? Brand and model number?

Looks cool. Good size burners.

1960's TX-800 Bernzomatic dual burner propane stove. Instruction plate is usually burnt if stove has been cooked on before. Older ones had the brass valve knobs and they switched to plastic, in the 60's. Grates fold together for a convienent carry handle. They made a single burner stove too. Great find, campinut

Very cool. Looks like it was designed by Rube Goldberg.

Great score. I have the single burner version of it. I'd love to find the double burner version.

Great score! I just got the single version the other day. Dad has the double, single and we both have a couple lanterns.

Some advice, the newer long bottles won't fit in the tube because of a little flare at the seem in the middle. You can file it off or save the ones that fit and refill them.

It takes propane cylinders for fuel. One for each burner

Thanks. I don’t know if I have any old ones so I may have to modify

Try some new Worthington cylinders. They fit in all my Bernzomatic stuff without modification. You can feel the cylinder bump on the seam, then it drops in. :D

Was that from are favorite flea market ?
Those things are cool. I have a couple of them here.
I see there is a guy on Ebay that reproduces a two piece decal for these but you would need both pieces of tin to attach the decal too. And I don't know how they would hold up to use.
