    Two Moeller & Condrup (M&C) repair outfits for roarer burner Primus stoves, both with identical contents lists but the 'K' outfit specifically labelled for inclusion in the pre-1915 M&C "No1 Compact Primus Outfit" that was based around a No.230 stove.

    The actual contents, despite the identical wording, would in fact have differed in respect of the burner washer sizes. The 'L' set contained washers for the standard No.1 size burner, and the 'K' set would have required smaller diameter burner washers to suite the 230 stove.

    Only the 'L' tin had any original spares contents still present, but it is worth mentioning that the No.1 size burner washers which are there are genuine thick white asbestos!

    All that remained in the 'K' tin were 2 M&C leaflets which are now posted in the Reference Library, a sales brochure which is posted here, and a maintenance sheet which is here.

    Wow...those are really something special and with original asbestos washers! Now that is something you don't come across everyday. Did you find these repair boxes in your great great grandfathers stuff?

    Good old ebay, unless I saw an identical pair.

    Glad I didn’t get under the feet of a mate and bid.
