    Hi, here are some photos of a V-coded (1931)Primus No.51 stove:

    This model is clearly a budget stove, with steel feet, and the narrow-diameter pump-assembly.
    However, Primus didn't stint on the wonderful grapics.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile

    And it's got a wonderful shape. I would guess that the rounded shoulders might create less residual stress (harking back to the stress cracks threads) if using thinner sheet? So perhaps a more expensive mold (if that's the right word for the press component) but paid back through cheaper material costs?

    Or was always just asthetic design rather than any material cost considerations?
