    This one took me a 4 hour drive, but it was all worth it.
    The previous owner said it was used for melting lead.
    I even got the witches cauldron and the ladle. It's cast iron and looks great, no cracks or missing parts, stamped Primus 533T Made in Sweden.
    The stove is a Primus 704 (and it's big).
    The bottom of the stove is marked AO4 with the 4 underneath the AO.
    It was a good day and well worth the drive.

    Hi Tracer yes the previous owner is right it is a plumbers furnace used for melting lead for joining lead pipes,
    A very nice example and all complete even with the pouring ladle, it will be nice to see it fired up

    Lovely, great big lead melter. Nice! If you live anywhere near the coast or rivers, get some casts for making fishing weights, some scrap lead, and put it back to work, maybe? Great stove. Look forward to some pics of it in action. Steve.

    It surprised me that I couldn't find anything about the 533T or 704 stove in the catalogues.
    Even Google didn't bring up some information.

    If I find some time this afternoon, I check the pumpleather and the pip.

    Hello @Tracer, would you be so kind as to measure your flame ring/tube for me please?

    I have one without a tube and plan to machine one up.

    OD & ID at top and bottom (sometimes they are tapered), and length if you would be so kind. Its useful reference material as well :content:

    Alec.

    Primus 1934 catalog says that hole of flame tube is 74mm (must be ID) and whole height of the stove is 360mm. Length of the flame tube can be measured by using that 'whole height' when stove is set on floor or table. Length of flame tube is not so critical... bit (~1 cm) over burner top should be ok.

    ID can be also measured from burner's max. diameter = flame tube goes into it's position freely. OD is that it fits inside of flame ring support ring.

    The max OD of my tube would be 55mm or just under. I'd rather get a measurement off of a 704 to be certain I have the correct burner.
    Which catalogue were you looking at?

    Alec.

    Just had a check, I do doubt this is the orginal as it has no markings, but it should work.
    Lenght = 75 mm
    Inside diameter = 69 mm
    Outside diameter = 78 mm
