    Good to see with the cast iron trivet. It appears to have had light use.

    Are you going to fire it up?

    Cheers

    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.

    Hi @MrAlexxx . Here is a photo of a No.7 stove shown alongside a half pint Primus No.96 for scale:

    @kerophile I thought my #2 made my 96 look like a midget. Wow. :)
