    Hi, just a question,

    I have an incomplete Svea 5 , mind you, the text on the tank does not say No 5.
    Now I can buy an Svea 5, like mine not No 5 on the tank but this one has a regulated burner with a black Max Sievert knob.
    I wonder, what is the difference between Svea 5 and Svea No 5?

    Regards,

    Ton.

    I think the age is the difference - the regulated burner is a common later update on many swedish No1/5 stoves virtually making them like a Primus 15 or Optimus 5R, usually that burner is another trade mark than the stove.

    I suppose you are right Lennart. somewhere in time the "No" disappeared.
    While another brand, Radius started adding "Ltd" to their products during the years.
