Good to see with the cast iron trivet. It appears to have had light use.
Are you going to fire it up?
If I can ever save up enough to afford the fuel ...
The cast iron Primus trivet is a real bonus.
Currently a non-branded No.3 trivet from Base Camp costs £37.95 ($48).
That's a beauty. I just picked up a #2 with a cast trivet. Any idea how they compare size wise? Thanks...
@MrAlexxx fuel capacity is given as 7 pints, as compared to 4 pints for the no.2 size and 2¼ pints for standard no.1.
@igh371 7 pints? Bigger is better! I need one of those.
My new to me #2 is such a treat to run in the house. A nice loud roar.

Guess that's boiled then:
