    Just an old Primus 100 from 1931 - date code "V"
    Runs good with both roarer and silencer - silencer is a modern cap from BaseCamp. It came in a nice home made box - a previous owner thought enough of the stove to build a nice wooden box for their stove. But alas it was stored and neglected :(
    as seen in the " as it arrived " pic. But after some basic cleaning and polishing, she's as good as new :) , except for the trivet, which needs some TLC

    Last pic is "as it arrived".

    Cheers Tom

    Yup, certainly a nice job you've done there, drooling at the pics. Hope I can find one too I can fettle.

    Cheers :clap:

    Hi Tom, an impressive fettle on a lovely stove.
    Aren't the engraving/markings on early stoves wonderful?
    You were fortunate to get both the flame-plate and silent damper, as these are usually the first parts to go missing from a veteran stove.
    I bet that old stove would have some tales to tell, if only it could talk.

    Take a bow!
    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Hi All,

    Thanks so much for the kind words ya'll , the stove is my oldest and one of my best runners .

    Nagant, it's like night and day with the roarer vs. the silencer - well worth the few extra bucks for a
    BaseCamp replacement

    Kerophile , unfortunately my stove did not come with
    the original silencer :( , but I was lucky enough to get an aftermarket replacement from Mike at BC :) They work great and are as quite as a church mouse, sweet . And those tank graphics are super
    , most likely having been well protected in that nice wooden box all these years

    Cheers

    Tom
