A follower of my #stoveaday postings on Instagram contacted me a couple of weeks ago with the offer of a Primus stove. Thinking it would be another 96, 210 or 5 I nonetheless said I was interested and asked for details. 'I think it's a rare one' he said. Still cautious as every Primus these days seems to be rare on certain auction sites I asked him to send pictures. I was delighted to receive pictures of this lovely little 34 dating from 1927. At first a reluctant burner despite my friend fitting a new jet. I swapped out his jet with my preferred choice of jet from Base-camp, changed the fibre washers and cleaned every hole in the silent burner. I estimate a quarter of them were blocked to some degree or other. An old bent cleaning needle rod from a Coleman generator was the perfect size. We never throw anything do we? A much better burn resulted. So my Primus 34 is today stove 64 on my #stoveaday feature since my lockdown started.
