Discussion in 'Optimus No:8 (version prior to the 8R)' started by Morten Christensen, Apr 25, 2020.
I just fund this one, almost new . How old can it be, and is it for petrol?
Welcome. Petrol (non-pump; i.e. naptha). Other info will be forthcoming.
Thank you for posting your wonderful example. It is rare because: it's in excellent, original condition (most are well used).
re "How old can it be"?
It is the version of the No.8 that came out prior to the *rounded case
(*the last version of the No.8).
Rounded case came out c. 1956 (maybe c. 1956/57).
An educated guess, yours is mid fifties (= 1953-56) not earlier than '52.
Welcome to CCS!
That's an excellent stove to start your collection with.
Welcome to the forum, glad to have you here. Really nice score there.
Thanks for the nice welcome. This is not my first stove, i have 20-25 psc. in my collection now, so the can easy close the electricity and still get a warm meal.
Also a warm welcome from Jutland (7830) Morten.
Thanks Harder ( 6700 )
