    As an earlyish Hasag paraffin stove, this is the No.10 companion to the No.11 and No.25 models already present in the reference gallery.

    At roughly 1½ pint size, overall dimensions are similar to a Primus 100, although it has a smaller cast trivet size at only 8" diameter. Age/dating seems to be problematic, as one source claims use of the main base and tank top logo designs was 'pre-1903', whilst the standard pump cup assembly and lion feet design seems to me to suggest a later dating.
    DSC04853.JPG DSC04856.JPG 'Hugo Schneider Aktienges, Leipzig', translates as Hugo Schneider Stock Share Company, Leipzig.

    The iron trivet arrangement is quite unusual in that the upstand leg tops are simple outwardly directed 'L' shapes, which clip into semi-enclosed sockets in the cast top plate:

    The filler/pressure release cap is similarly idiosyncratic:

    The pump is more akin to that on the smaller Hasag 25 stove, than that on the larger No.11:

    Careful observers of the photos will have noticed that one of the original feet has long since gone missing, and has been replaced by a very crude, if functional, substitute. I'm still tempted to try to create a plaster mold off one of the good feet, then attempt to cast a better substitute in lead ... maybe. The burner is also clearly a later replacement too. The spelling of the cast name on the burner head, 'PATRIK', suggests a central European origin.

    Outstanding different stove, congratulations, looking forward to seeing the results especially the casting of a foot.

    Cheers

    Second thought, if the foot is not a cast one it could be made from brass sheet, a lot of annealing and carefully beat it into shape then solder it into place.

    Cheers

    @Robert Bruce the original feet are indeed die pressed, and in fairly substantial gauge of brass too, but I really won't like to contemplate the difficulties of hand-working a replica of such an intricate design! That option at least is too much for me:lol:
    now that is true too, but worthy of further consideration. Doesn't it just go to underline how remarkably perfect the original Primus design was that even minor differences with ancillaries, such as pan-ring attachment and pressure release, can be sufficient to make one stove or another stand out as notably 'different' amongst the majority:thumbup:
    Thank you and all the best, Ian.

    You could get a foot cast in brass, then finish it off then it would look the same. Certainly it is easy in this country , just need an example for the foundry to make a sand mold from. The cost for more than one is not much more then if you stuff it up move on to another one. Just a thought.

    Cheers

    @Doug L I really like how the model number is on that ornate pump rod end on your No.11:thumbup: Very interesting too, now I get to see it properly, how the trivet legs and cast trivet on the No.11 are the more conventional design arrangement and not the same as on my No.10. I wonder if that was part of the difference between the models? or if it is a design change related to year of manufacture?

    I think the models numbers referred to the fuel capacity

    Very interesting! Great to see this biodiversity amongst stoves! Especially the ornamental feet which are actually feet!
