    Dear members

    I have not been able to find any information regarding this stove.
    It is marked Lanray No 8 (sorry but difficult to photograph) and as expected, Made in Australia. There are no markings on the burner or tank base. The legs insert into hollow stove stands soldered to the tank.
    The silent burner has a male riser that fits the Primus 210 tank. Unfortunately, the inner cap is missing from the silent burner.
    I have pictured the stove next to a Primus 210 for an indication of the size.
    • does anybody have information re the No8 Lanray
    • I assume that any inner cap will be suitable to use..is this correct?
    Thanks

    Chris

    That’s a nice looking stove. I’ve not seen that Lanray model.

    Lanray make a good stove so you should be able to get it working well. It looks like it will take a standard Primus-like inner cap.

    I don't know anything but it looks like something designed in Australia during WW2 and produced after the war ended as a substitute for imported stoves.

    Yes, the Lanray stove has a certain understated charm
