    Meanwhile in Sweden 5 years later than Coleman Gypsy stove; Primus was making this kerosene powered dual burner. So different than the Coleman but so similar.


    Part of a 3 year fettle :oops: The fettling along with more pictures can be seen here Fettling a Primus 527

    The tank is stamped "AB" = 1937 year of manufacture. This 527 sports two Primus 4135 regulated silent burners.

    See my other post on the Primus 4135 burner

    I really like that speckled gray nuance. Normally these stoves are single colour and not as fancy as this. The option for yacht use, the guard for the pot and pans is also nice to see.
    Great items.

    Such a nice looking stove and good to see the size comparison with the Coleman and Svea.
    The zinc plating has certainly done a good job in stopping the rust.
