    Thanks to KKs keen eye I was able to snapple these up for a song. Cheers also to Dan for the price guide.

    Get them in a weeks time

      Well done Chris

      I would have snapped them up myself but Auckland is to long a drive from Brisbane

      So who to tell but my CS buddy RedZone
      I did not want them to fall in the wrong hands like an antique dealer

      I am looking for a vac-pot with a glass rod filter for my next brewer

        I can sell you one for a price kk ;D

        Are you after a stovetop or burner type one? If you want tough and rugged stovetops then the Cona or Pyrex are better.

          I would prefer the stove top Cona, Pyrex because as you said they are made tougher

          We are cooking with gas at home will that be a problem ??

            No Gas is fine so long as you dont boil them dry. Now just see if Redzone will sell you one of his Conas The pyrex ones come with a cloth filter as standard but a lot of the Silex or Cona rods will fit.

              I should be asking for a finders fee

              No seriously I will find one eventually but it will most likely be from the US

                I have a stove top syphon with the glass rod available in my online store. Very nicely made with rubber seal. Large capacity- maybe 6 cups or more.

                Great collection BTW- that one in the centre top row looks huge and intriguing- 10 cups at least...

                hope the shelf was included :-)

                  Cheers SC, my wife and son are off to the States today and are picking them up on the way to the airport car storage facility, so my wait is still a week. No shelves but will sure be needing some

                      Well they arrived today safe and sound. Mostly Cona with a few Cory and one Bodum. They are all big by the way, in fact 3 are very big. Oh well must stick to the plan and sell a few to cover expenses.............or not ;D

                          My overnight collection was delivered this morning
                          Its a cute little thing & I was thrilled it arrived in one piece Also thrilled at the generosity of RedZone  

                          Many thanks Chris you are a legend [smiley=dankk2.gif]

                          For the technical info :-
                          It is a Cona Syphon with glass rod filter
                          Model "CONA" Junior Kitchen Model- British Made

                          I would say it is 2 or 3 cup max
                          Its a cute little thing & will give it a coffee trial on the weekend

                            Cute wee beasty Looks like it is the same size and shape as my Model As (1/2 pint).

                            Just remember to grind really course as the glass rods can clog. So what beans are first :-?
