    Here is a Primus R8 type stove, in nice used condition.
    Since there are so very few stoves shown here in this model,
    I thought I would post. It had been used in the past a few
    times, but not by me. Its just in my collection.

    Thanks for looking...Roby

    I believe I saw that one on the Bay. Nice one.

    Very nice example of an 8R.
    The reason why they are seldom seen is that it actually is an Optimus with a Primus sticker. In the days when Optimus took over the Primus brand name, the same stoves was sold under two names.
    So the 8R is basicly an Optimus model.
    This is specially notable concerning blow torches, where the same item was sold under the brand names, Primus, Optimus and Sievert.
