    This is my other US-made primus stove. I did not find relevant catalog information in the forum database, but judging from its appearance and style, I guess it belongs to the last version of the US-made primus stove. 77192C57-5B52-485B-82AD-0D56DF1B04AC.jpeg 0522498A-0801-4355-A346-B2FE21F28967.jpeg DE7227F5-3AF9-4C2D-B8AA-6AD2C4DBBA3D.jpeg No text stamping on the tank 60817175-9DD1-4076-897F-C88DDE609FD4.jpeg 12A7EC3E-29B3-4B01-AF7B-8F307025A38F.jpeg There is some useful information on the filler cap of the tank 9232DF77-B7A6-4A67-9621-C0C891137272.jpeg The pot support is made of copper 7DF496EF-2204-401E-8FF5-FD1D27BEA7B2.jpeg The inner and outer covers of the silent burner are also made of copper, and the inner cover is threaded.

I think this is an obvious characteristic of the times. F82A068A-BA7C-4561-B966-4D72DA15C598.jpeg The air pump check valve is different from the common one, which may be the initial form of this component. The sealing element is made of cork, and it can still be used after 100 years. I did not replace it.

The leather piston is still flexible. More than a hundred years later, it is not time to disassemble and replace the leather piston.

This furnace does not use steel materials that are easily oxidized. All materials except solder are made of copper alloy.
