    This Campus 3, is of a model that seems to be a bit unusual, as it has a windshield similar to the 123, rather than the riveted windshield seen at other models... I havent found any references to this stove, and I would be very grateful if there is someone that knows more precisely when this stove is made...
    I like it a lot, as it is in the size of a long can of Campbells.. ;) The handle I made myself from a piece of aluminium, since it was missing. I payd 20 SEK for this, which is between USD6.50 and USD7 (or about £1.50).. I actually didn't really know what it was at first, or rather how it worked, since it doesn't have a pump, but I bought it anyway, thinking that I have to find out how this thing works!!
    (This is the earlier of 2 known variants & probably dates from the early 1930's - Spiritburner)

    I have reference to this stove from the 1930's & 40's. This petrol stove is ideal for the hiker or motor-cyclist with it's compact design & light weight. Standing approx 16cm or 61/2" high. Note the fold out feet, built in windshield & shaped pan supports to hold the pan. The pan handle even doubles as a clip to hold the unit together when stowed.

    Are these common? I've got my eye on one but don't want to pay too much.
