    This one has an incorrect burner. It sports a deep-skirt silent burner as would have been found on the Primus #4 or Primus #34 of this era. It should have a roarer burner. That's ok with me as I love this burner due to it's excellent burning characteristics and huge power output. Care must be used with this diminutive 1-pint stove as the powerful burner heats up the tank and potlegs very quickly when operated at full throttle.

    Fettled, but not restored at this stage. Shown next to a Optimus #45 (that currently sports a British burner of unknown make) for size comparisons.

    Hi Gary, I like your Primus No.30 a lot. I had never seen one before.
    The roarer burner on your Op.45 is a Townson and Coxson (the maker of Burmos stoves) patent, which was used by several British Manufacturers on their 1.76 and 2-pint stoves:

    Thanks Kerophile! :D

    I like it a great deal, too.

    I appreciate the positive i.d. on the burner that my Opti 45 is currently sporting. I had assumed it was from Burmos (Townson and Coxson), but as it was unmarked in any way I could discern I was uncomfortable claiming that as a fact. The thread you linked to clarifies the issue. Thanks.

    And thanks to hydro651 who was a kind gentleman to gift me the burner in exchange for a piddling bit of fettling work.

    Cheers,
    Gary
