Good detail in those cutaway drawings.
The burner is quite clever on these with three perforated downtubes at 120 degrees to each other, each producing a vertical row of small flamelets to heat up the conventional-type Tilley vapouriser. Unfortunately, and probably because of that, the CS56 was about twice the price of the equivalent Primus stove, at the time... Nice stove, though, and with a great flame pattern.
Yes a very good stove but a rare thing. Expensive when new and no better in function than a three leg Primus type so I don't think they sold all that well. Nice piece to have in any collection. ::Neil::
In all my years of collecting (now about 8!) I still haven't come across one of these.
Took me years of collecting around swaps markets and there it was in my home town swap so just wait .
It's the CS22 that's eluding me - the CS56s are positively common compared with that one. I've never seen one and I can think of only one person I know who has one - bah!
Think all the CS22 must have come to Australia.
They are a nice stove and run sweet to .
I hope that the CS56 supplement and detailed photos of the CS22 appear on CCS.
