    Hi Bjorn well done there a beautiful example through out, I agree I do not think it has ever been used, there is no sign of carbon or heat scorching on the burner, the brass has just dulled down to a beautiful patina over the 83 years it has been stored.
    I do not blame you for not wanting to fire her up yet

    Very nice. First time I saw Chinese stamps, and Rusky as well.

    Greetings, Bjorn,

    Thanks for posting this great and lovely old Primus 100!! Because you took the time and effort to do this, you have helped me learn more about a stove I found whilst on our recently completed trip. Mine is REALLY dirty, but otherwise seems to be in good knick. Missing it's burner plates, and pot supports, I believe I have just the parts to make it whole again, thanks to some goodies received from three of our fine and kind CCS members: Dan (NZ), Doug (US), and Stu (UK)!! I've had some of the needed parts for a very long time, but look forward to bringing them all together in refurbishing my own Model 100 from 1930. Mine will not be as nice as yours, but I'm still tickled to have found it recently!! Thanks, again, for posting your stove here, and consequently helping me to learn more about my own!! :thumbup: 8) :D :D Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Beautiful kit, the 100 L, they are very majestic and handsome stoves. Output a lot of heat, large burner/flame radius, two mods roarer and silent, large fuel tank capacity, etc. I've always been curious though as to why they included/used such a small burner pre-heater/wind shield. That type (#1600 I believe) only comes up to just below the burner bell when sitting on the fount, leaving the area where combustion occurs completely open to the wind (through the bell's large vent holes). There is nothing for its windshield to hang onto like they do with the rim of the Primus 210 burner. SO even with the pre-heater being used you still have to ensure she's well out of any draft (particularly in operation with the silent cap).
