    The USA made Primus stove features in a 1897 catalogue in the reference library with some minor differences.

    Lovely item. More here.

    I was lucky enough to buy this from the owner. Cost a lot of coin plus customs. He sent it across to the pond in an excellent ply & hard card crate. Unfortunately there was very little packaging inside & it arrived with a lot of the cast iron items broken. He also included a heavy home made NTV tool which was able to finish off the tank, already weakened by stress fractures as it rattled around the crate. I've since given up trying to get my money back. I paid a friend of his as he doesn't have paypal via 'family & friends' & I'm sure he's claimed back the insurance as I got paperwork from Parcelforce on behalf of USPS & provided detail & pictures of damage. I rang him once & got some bull about the claim & promise he'd investigate further.

    I have had the broken cast welded. It wasn't possible to get it perfect. The tank is a right-off. I'm pretty sure it was stress-cracked anyway. However it's still a beautiful item & I am happy to have it. I hope to take it to Newark & will post more pictures of it complete soon.
