    Hi all,

    Firstly, thanks to everyone for your comments on my first fettle....still in progress and loving it.....!

    Decided to go to the local swat meet yesterday....soon as I walked in there was 4 x brass blow torches (fettle territory and will post photos if anyone interested) and took the whole lot for $45...next, a seller was just setting up and the first item that he put up was (photos as below)....($15)....couldn't resist!

    Once again, would appreciate any comments...whats missing in parts or pointers on this item?...anything that would make my learning curve go deeper....I feel that I have the cleaning process sorted to my own satisfaction so far....yet to go into the nuts and bolts and seals of getting both the 1st and 2nd items to burn!

    Cheers, Phil IMG_5389.JPG IMG_5390.JPG IMG_5391.JPG IMG_5392.JPG IMG_5393.JPG

    Hi, O 37 = 1925, Year of Manufacture. We do not know for certain what the 37 means.

    Primus Dating Chart 1911 - 1964

    Primus No.1, but fitted with a silent burner missing its outer cap.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.
