    I purchased this stove from Charlie in Cincinatti on the 14th October and it arrived on the 21st.
    Charlie, thanks very much.

    All I have done to it, is give the whole thing a wash, replaced a filler cap washer, two needle racks and a nipple. I also replaced the inner and outer burner caps which were missing.
    It is dated AK ( 1946 )

    I'll let the pictures speak for the overall condition.

    Hi Ian, BRAVO! :clap: That original hot dipped galvanize coating is just about bullet proof! The silent burner stoves really appeal to me too. I was amazed how fast that they get my 14 cup Revere percolator going. Much quicker than a gas burner.

    A very nicely done fettle and tidying up!
    I have not seen a zinced frame before and this one looks great! Question: the parallel rods, to secure the pots when cooking on the waves, are they original (nickled) or stainless replacements?

    My stove from 1954 is missing them and I wonder what finish they had. The surround frame is supposedly tinned according the relevant brochure while he frame appears to be stainless.
    A rather odd combination I think.

    Thank you for sharing,
    Regards, Mike

    Very nice stove. I have the same. (see Ref.Gal.)
    Is (was) the Primus-sticker in the middle original?
    I didn`t mentioned any rests of it on mine.
    Endy

    Hello Dutchmike.
    I had a Primus 527 exactly the same with the original divider rods for the pots.
    The divider rods were hot dipped galvanised the same as the main stove body was.
    The galvanising worked well on the one I had but the aluminium heatshield/drip tray had been destroyed by oxidation and had to be replaced to help support the burners again.
    A great stove with a big fuel tank.

    Hi Mike

    The rods came from another 527 which I have, the rods are made of stainless steel, no idea whether they are original, as have nothing to compare to.

    This other one I have is dated AT, it needs a lot of work doing to it. It is zinc plated on the frame, and the pan guard is detachable, unlike the one above, which is fixed. I haven't cleaned the paint off the detachable frame yet, so I don't know whats under there.
    The other variations are riser and spirit cup are brass, the tank is nickel plated, and not chrome as the one above, and also the Primus 527 disc has Made in Sweden stamped on it, whereas the one above it hasn't.

    Endy - I dont know whether the Primus sticker is original, but I dont seee any reason why not.

    Regards
    Ian

    Hello,
    Great stoves. A griddle will fit right over the rails without any problems.
