    Just got this, filling a hole in my 96 collection, still need a "H". Has the hard to find spanner stamped Primus on both sides, tin is one of the best I have. First I've seen with glued packing image on inside lid. Only needed the pump cup oiled a little, still had some grease on it. Poked the NRV. Replaced the fuel cap washer and pricked the lipstick as it seemed to not pass enough air when I tried the pump before fueling. Needs peening, but I did nothing with the fount insides.

    Thank you, came that nice. Still need a handful of years to be complete. :( Don't know my alphabet very good I guess.

    Trying to locate an example of something, produced in limited runs, during last 100 years, and still in working order, can easily make Odysseus‘ little boat ride around the Aegean enviably child’s play.

    I wish you every luck your missing examples surface...

    Thank you, slow progress. Have located five now this year I believe. The best was the pre-1911 and the 1911 models.
    Peened the burner, nice, even blue flame, but not as high as before. It works.
