    This is the Primus 96 I posted about a while ago. I thought it was about time I took some better pictures for the gallery. :p I guess I should thank Mr H Crow for not taking this out on any camping trips.:thumbup::lol:

    Matthew that is an absolute beauty!
    The stove, of course is perfect, but having a mint tin and also the original cardboard box is lashings of icing on the cake!

    Gradually, slowly but surely, you are coming to like the stoves and are coming to realise that you can get an amazing stove for the same price as a crap lantern.
    Go with the Force, go with stoves! :D

    Every collection should have one - few have one as nice as this!

    There's just one "problem" with a stove in this condition. You need another similar as a user...! Perfect stove, in perfect condition. Congratulations! :clap:

    Thanks guys, glad you like it. Trevor, problem is I'm running out of stove space but I'm hoping that I'll soon have an extension to my lamp shelf. Having said that and as roat mentioned I do have a second 96 in a usable condition.:thumbup: Never used it to cook though.:lol:

    Hi Matthew: We never met before, as I was here in the earlier days - and not for some years (just reactivated). Great to see a fascination for these little miracles continues to another generation..

    Best,

    Peter

    Hi Peter, I think this hobby is an extension of my life long fascination with fire. I think it's a bit less weird if I sit playing with a lamp or a stove than just a box of matches.:lol::lol::lol: That would be cheaper though.:-k

    For those who came to CCS in more recent years, Peter's been around longer than his 'joined' date implies. Those dates relate to registration on CCSv2 & v3 post July 2004 when we became totally forum based. Peter was a regular contributer to the original CCS & is very knowledgeable on the fixed legs domestic 'Swedes'.

    Ah, Matthew! Your straightforward honest is refreshing - we pyromaniacs at least prefer controlled fire, preferably with a correctly balanced blue flame!

    Yes, Ross: those days seem so long ago. What's impressive is the sum total of knowledge that is being collected, preserved and presented right here - now the world's premier resource for the history of this remarkable chapter of the late industrial revolution and its technology, which, we shouldn't forget, was truly transformative and (for its day) eco-friendly. Much cleaner than burning coal or wood! Just leafing through the early catalogues and realising: 1. how competitive an industry it was and 2. the sheer range of products that clearly had a market is indication enough of how important a chapter our collective hobby once was.
