    Just come across this old Primus stove. A great find. It is in absolutely original condition in it tin with the brass Compact plaque on it with all accessories including the spares tin with spare washers, jet pricker and jet. It lit perfectly with no problem, the only thing I did was to put a drop of oil on the pump washer. Nothing else was needed. !!! What a garage find.

    Wow, what a score. 108 years with nothing lost or broken. Amazing.

    Some of my favourite stoves, the little ones that hide in a pocket of the rucksack.
