    Hello, here I present my stove and heater "Primus No.158". It is a product from Sweden. The date of production is unknown to me. It has a height of 62 cm and a diameter of the reflector of 32,50cm. I use kerosene for the operation.
    Best regards
    Roland

    Very nice Roland!

    This model was made from the early 30's to about 1947 (Nils Stephenson's research says 1937-47, but he also says that catalogue material is scarce).
    But yours really should have the date stamp at the bottom.
    Can you have a look again, please?
    If you can't find it, you can atleast assume that yours are from the later part of that era.
    Mine has the same features and was made in 1947.

    Have a look at the 158 gallery over at CPL.
    Perhaps you'd even consider post yours there?
    If you want more information about it, I'm sure Nils will provide it over there.

    The heaters are coming out. First a Cobra heater and now this Primus heater. Fall weather must be upon us.
