    Hello, I'm new here & live in Belgium.
    I discovered a Primus stove on our attic.
    After some primary clean-up (some idiot painted the stove) I discovered the following :
    Primus Stove No. 14, made in Sweden with date mark AB 29 (1937 as I understood).
    The stovewas in a wooden box with several accesories : burner ring, several burner heads, a silent burner cap, jet cleaner, wrench, unopened jet cleaner in original package, wind deflector, ...
    As I am not a collector, I would like to find a new home for this stove.
    At the moment the stove is still partially painted.
    If one would be interested, you can send me a pm.
    Mind the fact though that I live in Belgium, ...

    hope you love the pictures I included & I really hope someone would like to add this stove to his or hers collection (or knows somenone who would like to).

    Hi,

    Keep it. You won't find another. Seriously.

    Or, send it far far away so you will never be tempted to come get it; send it to NZ, I'd be vey happy with it.

    Regards,

    Rob

    who has one already, and would be happy with two.

    I finally got around to clean up the stove and fill it up with petrol. I got burning by pouring some spiritus in the ring under the burner and then lighting the stove. Apart from a leakage at the regulator it fired up quite nice. It's however not burning completely steady. Some pictures below.

    @Phoenix I hope it is just a translation error when you say
    This stove should only use kerosene/paraffin as a fuel.

    I actually filled it with lamp petroleum (petroleum type C) which I thought should come quite close to kerosene/paraffin.
    Am I mistaken?
    Not sure where to buy kerosene...

    I am not familiar with lamp petroleum - no problem getting kerosene here. I hope someone else knows what that is and if it is suitable.

    @Phoenix I did a quick search and found this. It looks like there is plenty of soot on your burner, so I'd do the test...

    thank you for the replies. I will look further into what fuel it can use (and do the soot test).
