    Good evening!

    Below are some pictures from my new Primus No 70 stove that I bought for about 1 month ago.

    I haven't tried it yet, but as soon I've some time over - I'll give it a try!

    Best Regards,

    Curious that the stove is a 70 but the windshield is marked 71

    Hello Magnus,
    Very cute nickled No.70! However, the support shows the (expected) 71 number, but it is a very nice combination!
    I bet you had to apply some "elbow grease" to bring it up to this condition; well done!
    I did think that the 71 was the 70 with a control valve.
    Of course you can screw the burner-cum-valve into a 70 tank, so no real clues there.
    Unless the only feature that sets the 71 apart from the 70 is just that safety "spike", but your pictures show that spike clearly.
    Now I really wonder what made Primus to introduce the 71 as a new model number as the 70 ended up with the same features.
    The only 70 I have is brass, with seperate meth's dish, screwcap on chain to replace the burner, no control valve nor pressure relief.
    Somebody out there with a Primus brochure around 1930?

    Cheers, regards,
    Mike

    This is the last variant of the 70 c1931. Primus sold the older non-control cock version concurrently for a short period. The outfit with just the 2 part windshield & no pans was the 70D - this was introduced the at the same time the 'safety pin' came out.

    The first version of the 71 was the same as this 70 - it was basically just a renumbering exercise.

    Lovely stove set, Magnus.

    I just adore that nickel plating!
