Default Hose for Tilley stove wanted

High pressure hose for tilley stove wanted - with threaded fittings both ends (NPT I think...)

I already have the tap for the bottle (direct bottle feed - no regulator) , just need the hose from the tap to the stove

Thanks

Most decent camping/caravanning shops should be able to supply that bud.

Do they exist anymore??! Been into a couple of caravan supplies shops and they looked at me like I fell out the sky!

If I had imperial thread gauges to work out what they are I could probably find something online....

The consensus is that these have been unavailable since the 1970s. For health and safety reasons the modern stuff uses a regulator that sets straight onto the bottle and uses low pressure hose. In the 70s this wasn't a problem so high presssure hose was used as the regulator efffectively was in the stove itself.
I have a 70s Tilley stove that has a damaged hose that I would love to replace, but I've never been able to source one.
Let me know please if you ever find a supplier.
Thanks
Jon

Would a hose off a primus not fit as you can still buy these for the early butane/propane stoves direct from primus. Also try www.tilleylampsandstoves.com They mainly stock stuff for paraffin lamps n stoves but may be able to help.

I'm torn between converting it to use a regulator and just keeping the retro look, or finding a way to connect straight to the cylinder...will let you know if I find a way
