    What diameter is the jet in the 4746 nipple for the Primus No. 3 stove?

    Cheers

    Hi Tony, don't know what the jet diameter is, but I do know that Base-camp have the No.3 jets in stock.

    I think it is 0,6 mm.

    Here's an image of the pack of cleaning needles.

    0.60 to 0.63mm is about the nominal size for sure.
    I'll have a probe with my number/letter drills tonight to check. My 529 was a #72 (0.635mm) with a slightly worn orifice, but I can check my 3s as well :content:

    I reckon 0.6mm diameter jet aperture for a No.3 stove is correct.

    This link to a Radius No.36 I have said:

    “This Radius No 36 is jetted at 0.7mm, or 28 thou, which is bigger than my No 3 stove.”

    From:

    Radius No. 36 Stove *

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.
