    I wondered what you good people think of my harness carry solution for my Primus 41 with no handle. I still intend making a basic bent wire handle but the harness will still be needed to keep the stove closed. Its made of finest Sedgwick bridle leather, the same leather I use to make belts.

    Absolutely a outstanding bit of work on your part, and you should be right chuffed with your accomplishment!!

    'right chuffed' - not originally from Oldham, England are you Murph? ;)
    I am quite pleased with the solution.
    Regards

    Nice leatherwork, but I think your time would have been better spent with a pair of pliers and half a yard of steel wire.

    @Ian I'm going to give that a go but the 41 handle looks quite a precise and complicated item to make.

    Hi @Robert Radcliffe . If you were to make a replacement handle to the original pattern the case will be closed and secure with the handle in the upright carry position. The semi-circular terminations of the handle engage and secure in the case lid.

    @kerophile yes I have a complete 41 with wire handle, I was intending making a simpler version of the handle, more like that on a 111, doubting my ability to make the semi circular parts precisely enough. In which case the harness would still be needed.
    My silent burner 41.

    Hi @Robert Radcliffe . You have so many lovely stoves....

    Wire is cheap and you are likely a much better wire-bender than you believe.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Thank you kind Sir. I'm lucky enough to have a wife that tolerates my many obsessions and to have found a few nice stoves over the years.
    As to the wire bending I am hopeful but not confident.
    Best wishes
    Rob.

    @Robert Radcliffe , I'm a Yank, through and through, but I spend far more time watching the Beeb via Britbox, American TV shows and the like are hitting the bottom of the barrel these days!

    On a good day, I can pass for a Brit, or a recent transplant from Dublin - makes for fun on St Paddy's Day, don't have to spend a tuppence on stout or single malt for the night, or go home alone, for that matter (when I was young and single!). Been doing this for donkeys, and the ladies don't know I'm feeding 'em porkies all night long!

    Murph

    Fantastic work. The dark blue and brown leather look wonderful.
