    Found by a friend here in South Africa.
    I know there are similar Primus, Optimus and Svea stoves but have not seen the blow torch and lamp heads? burners? before.

    You're serious, not a joke.

    phaedrus42 I would like you to meet
    Radius42

    ...and there's plenty more where that came from (the gallery).
    Link is to Ben's, his is complete with both options but stove in your example (SRV on top) is not an exact match to his.
    There are several versions of the 42 stove.

    Awesome find, if it is now yours, congrats!!!
    thx omc

    Thanks, that is the one! I have a Primus 71, an Optimus 80 and am familiar with the Svea 123 but have not encountered the Radius variant before.
    Aladdin mantles do not travel well, so not sure how useful the lamp head would be when camping. I suppose hair spray may help somewhat.
