    I was trying to find something about the Primus 76 single burner, but not much to be found. If I would guess the 76 is new in 1930 and fased out 1937 and maby replaced by the 41?

    With the 77 having a longer lifespan, from aprox 1927 (first seen) til 1955 , that is the latest pictured in the photo section Primus No:77 - (1955)

    After a webbsearch this is what I found

    Primus 76, 1931 Primus Nr.76 分解整備 - BENZIN KOCHER UND RECHAUD A ESSENCE ET CAMP STOVE OF KIYOKIYO1

    Hi @tretrop Did you use Trevor's

    Hi @tretrop I find the Hyperlinked Index complied by Trevor to be invaluable for doing this kind of research work.
    Best Regards,

    That's a great stove and a really nice video. Thanks for letting me enjoy both. If they're rare in Sweden I'll never see one in California.
