    This is actually not a camping stove :lol:. A bit hard to bring a 7 liter, 45 cm tall, item on a camp tour.
    But as there is no other forum for these industrial items I have to post it here. Compare the Primus spirit can to see how huge this item is. From what I have find out it is the biggest single burning stove from Primus.
    Unfortunately is the flame spreader missing. Guess it should be a cast iron piece with a outer diameter of 100-105mm. If anyone has this part I will gladely trade for it.
    This is the earlier version with small bun feets, later models had a rim at the bottom.
    The burner on this one is not vertical, has problay been bent. Have to try to get it back in the original position.

    That looks like a camp stove to me. Just the thing for a Crawfish Boil!

    The catalogue does say it has a “cast iron flame tube”.

    In the absence of cast iron, a visit to a motor vehicle exhaust repair shop might yield a suitable substitute.

    Best regards

    I was thinking about something similar. Maybe an old plumb tube. The cast iron is more rouch in the surface and give the stove another look.
    Finding an original replacement is probably impossible but a good replication would do fine.
    Ben, a good suggestion. Next time I am going to cook a nice fish soap from a pike I might consider to use this One. No problem of it is a 5 kgs fish.
