Some pictures of the before and after :
That's a lovely restoration on a rewarding model! What is the production span on this variety? Did you have to re-apply the plating or is this the original shine? Thank you for sharing!
Hi iani a real beautifull example of a range and what a fantastic transformation if that was mine when not in use i would have it on display on my kitchen work top may be next to the stove which would look realy nice
No idea about the production span.
The shine is basically what was there after it had been cleaned up.
I had to badger the wife for 12 months to put a Tilley lamp up in the front room, all I ever got, was no, no, no, I did it anyway.
Put it in the kitchen, I've got no chance !!!!
Unlike some of the domestic ranges that model is very easy on the eye!
That is a real beauty! Please send it to me. I have a very nice NIB sterno stove that I can trade...I'm sure you would be much happier with it. It's light and simple. Not big and complicated with all those nasty knobs and pumping to get pressure plus refilling...exhausts me to even think about it......
A lovely range you have there iani. I like those Primus burners to. They have steel spindles so I think it wise turn to loosen them from "closed" and back again(with the air pressure released), before the burners cool too much. They have a tendancy to stick hard in their seats if they aren't loosened before the burner has cooled.
What paint type did you apply to the body of the stove and how?
I have a few of these that I have collected as a 'future work project' when I have the space - physical, mental and social - to do the job justice.
This model is mentioned in catalogues from 1922 to 1930. There are some big gaps between the catalogues so these years are probably not exact.
Lovely stove btw. I am very fond of the Primus kitchen ranges.
Trade half a dozen camels for it, you pay postage.
I found after the third firing of it, it did what you say. I slackened the spindle off, and also the packing nut.
Now its all packed away safely.
I used Plasti-kote Woodstove 152 Black.
I too have got a soft spot for these two burner ranges.
Thanks for all your comments
