    This is one of two that I purchased, that arrived from Europe yesterday. The other being a Phoebus No 1, which can be seen in the last 3 pictures.

    The No 1 leg, is shown on the right hand side of the picture, the top part of the leg being a bit longer than the No 5.

    In picture 15, the brazing had failed, a 4mm hole, along the seam, which I sil-brazed.

    What I would like to know is, as there is nothing in the catalogue section, would the regulator burner, be original to the stove.

    Ian, yet another lovely stove.
    It is nice to have an original pan trivet that is so clearly marked.
    Also, judging the condition of the trivet, it looks like the stove has not had much use.

    You wonder if the regulator is original. I wonder also, but would like to think that it is.
    The knob on the end of the regulator control has nice, clean, clear markings and certainly could be original to that stove.

    Hi Ian, Nice Phoebus stove, and a real bonus finding one fitted with a regulated burner. I am pretty sure that it is original. Phoebus were certainly capable of building a regulated burner, subject to Patent considerations.

    I checked my copy of the Phoebus catalogue yesterday, but it is dated 1934, the same as the one on the CCS site, and as you say, there is no mention of a regulated burner.

    Primus introduced their 4135 regulated burner around 1938, and I guess they would have been first:

    Your stove is marked "Made in Austria". I have a Phoebus No.1 stove marked as "Made in Germany".

    Austria was annexed by Germany in 1938 , "The Anschluss" and formally became a State of Greater Germany. I wonder if Phoebus changed the marking of all of their stoves at this time, and only reverted to "Made In Austria" again after WW2 was over?

    I wonder when your stove was made? It is in remarkably good condition and I would have thought post-WW2, on the basis of parts and condition.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Hello Guys!
    I have an old Phoebus No. 5 without regulator. Not as nice as it is here, and burner cap is completely missing.
    I cleaned it last sunday, may I post photos in a new thread?

    Yes, a new thread, or if you have some detailed photos you should find the right place in the Reference Gallery.

    Cheers
