    It's not one of the Saturn V rocket multi-burners, just a little 2 burner. Primus Cooking & Heating Apparatus Co and July 4 93 on the fuel cap are the only markings to be found on it. The pump cup leather had turned to dust and it's missing the cast iron "velocity stacks," but it's still in pretty decent shape for its age.
    Thanks for looking,
    Trig

    That is a pretty awesome find here in the US. On top of that, really rare to find a two burner kerosene stove of Primus make.

    I bet with a little bit of work, you'll find that this over-100-year beauty will be working again. They sure don't make them like they used to. I wonder if my cell phone or ipod would even power up in a hundred years!

    Hi, Ecosys,

    Nice old Primus, and being American made makes it even more special!! Well found! I agree with Sam, and bet you'll get that Old Timer up and running once again, with a little effort. Please post more photos when that time comes. Thanks, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc
