    I was at a home today working that had a curb alert of items that were left by the previous owner. The cleaning crew had placed a large amount of items by the curb for pick up by the trash company. Sitting there was a tin full of popcorn (held three flavors in it). I have been in search for a tin for my Primus No.5.S:or. stove. I took it home and cleaned it up. A perfect fit. Now that I know what to look for I might make a full sized wind screen for it. Maybe I'll paint the tin and slap a Primus label on it :D/

    Very nice, indeed. When I saw the thread title, I thought that I might see something previously unknown and unheard of!

    The best part ? The label is intact ! Now I know who makes it, the size, etc. Sold by walmart and office depot during the holidays. Only a stovie looks at a pile of garbage, notices a tin, and thinks..."That's about the size of a No 1 or No 5 stove...hmmm" :lol:.

    Perhaps I should have stated "Perfect Replacement Tin Found" ? Mods-Feel free to change it if you desire to.

    But it's not a replacement tin.8]

    It's an original!

    I'm struggling to think of a UK equivalent at the moment.

    You could cut out a section and hinge it and use the stove inside.

    @Simes I thought of finding another tin and cutting vent holes and such for allowing air intake or possibly adding a bail handle to it the seet up. There is enough room at the base internally to hold several items for the stove such as a meth's tin, lighter, etc. The lid on the tin fits almost too well lol. Today I'll try my 45 and 51 in it fully assembled.

    That tin certainly works very well. Good eye!

    @Cookie, so long as you like popcorn the possibilities are endless. :)

    @kerophile, a couple of my stoves came with their 'biscuit tin', I remember those posts well.

    I can't think of anything of quantity that comes in a tin anymore, although I have to admit I don't specifically look out for anything suitable.

    @Simes I rarely eat popcorn but I have a dog and a cat that loves it as a treat not to mention the wife is a popcorn hound. I could always buy it, rebag it, lie and tell everyone that I made it for them, and give it away during the holidays :^o. At least I'm not the type of person to paint it, slap a sticker on it, rough it up, and sell it on the bay of evil for an exorbitant amount :-k as an "original rare tin". Apparently ebay is the best place to buy rare antiques lmao....getting off my soap box now

    I don't think I've made.popcorn since this time last year. It'll be a late night Sunday this side of the pond. 49'rs?

    Vikings fell at the first hurdle (again).

    i’m always on the look out for stove size tins. a cracker (biscuit) tin will work for a Coleman 520.
