Discussion in 'Primus No:5 (inc S & J)' started by Garth, Sep 6, 2018.
Found at a junk shop under the dirt its actually a tidy little stove.
What is the lower priming cup for? Or could one of the priming cups actually the inner cover of the burner?
@Dr Phun - it was part of an early 'auto-lighting' system. Explained here in a contemporary Primus catalogue:
See also the discussions here and here.
The upper cup is therefore a later addition?
Possibly due to the self priming not quite working as well as it might as discussed elsewhere here.
Hope to see some photos when it be lighted
Wow! That's an early one. Great find.
