I didn't know where to put this post, as it's not a reference stove and not really a fettling post. It is a pictorial story of a Primus 210 tank that I bought recently and decided to convert into an outfit. The stove tank is not remarkable other than it was made in 1948, the year I was born. The tank had been in the corner for a while with no burner or legs, when my wife came back from shopping with a box and said 'is this any use for your stoves'. That is when the idea started to make the missing parts and put the whole stove outfit into the box. Making the legs was straightforward, and the techniques are well documented on this site. Next was the tinware. I had recently bought some 0.5mm thick steel sheet and so I made the windshield, funnel and tins from this material, using tinsmithing techniques which you can find (here). The tins were hard to make. I now think 0.5mm is too thick for normal tinsmithing - the forming was very hard and because of the thick steel the soldering of the seams took a long time with a 110Watt iron The funnel was easy using the steel sheet and a 15mm plumbing pipe off cut Overall, I am pleased with the result for my 'birthday year' stove, and it will definitely be a keeper. The number 4 silent burner with lighter was a spare, so that was a bonus. There is room in the box for a small roarer burner as well if the components are rearranged.
