Here is one of my Optimus 99's. My everyday user as well for lunch.
Looks like the one I got new in the mid seventies. But yours has no dents.
Madre el Diablo! What are you burning in this pup?-nitromethane!!!!!
Man, that's one screaming 99!!! VERY nice, Sir!! 8) Great photos, too, by the way! Well done, all around. Take care, and God Bless!
Every Good Wish,
Yeah funny how that works eh. The stove is fine but I got all the dents.
Thanks guys. Just burning Coleman fuel. I think I have this fettling art down
HECK of a flame. Take it easy on that pump there. You don't want to trip the SRV.
Whoa - you are switching burners on us without telling. First you have that gorgeous flame with a regular flame spreader, and all of a sudden there's a BD minicap instead!!!
Knight..in the photo with the chain saw,is that a home made priming can next to the blue "thing" in the lid?
Looks to me like an original meths container.
beautiful outfit and a screaming roarer pattern!
No kidding. It's amazing how big that flame gets when the SRV does its job.
Learned I could have been a place kicker in high school instead of a running back when I blew the mini-pump off my 99.
The running back skills came in handy, too.
Hi Jim. Your right one has to be careful when using the mini pump. Those flame shots are taken after the stove boiled some water for tea and has 3 pumps from the mini pump.
The funny thing about pump caps is the NRV fails first instead of the SRV. With the SRV opening around 50 to 55 PSI the NRV won't be able to hold much more than 40. Still testing though.
Good question. That is the reprodution spirit can from Basecamp Part # P1738 SEC (£4.00 Seconds now £2.50)
It is a copy of the classic Primus No. 1738
