A friend walked up to me at the pub and handed me a Primus No. 71 today.

It's just cuter than a bug's butt!

Compared to a Svea 123:

Smaller dia, but a little taller.

Anyone decode the date stamp?

He asked me to tell him about it. I don't know if he wants me to get it running, sell it to me, or what.

I know I should be at CCS for this, but I keep forgetting my password.

PS: If you don't get the title of this post, you didn't have an aunt from East Texas. Hint: That ain't a compliment.

TIA.

Yup, they're fun.  Got the older kinda fill cap, that is about all I can tell you.

Old guy briefly had a store here in town, selling off his "stuff" (he had a lot of stuff)  I bought a 71 off of him, he said he used it for decades making coffee.
I've got two now, how did I get two??

Nice, I don't have that style.  Might be AX = 1958, but the chart only goes to AV = 1956.  Have the tin with it?

not looking for any more Bday gpas. Honestly, if you have a 10-72 don’t let me know about it.

Thanks, all!

Duane--Thanks for the effort. I'll roll with that for now. I don't know if he got the tin, but I doubt it as he didn't know there was one. I guess it isn't really practical to use without it.

I just wish I knew what the status of this is. Fix it, buy it?

Jason: When my southern aunts said some thing like that, it roughly translated as "Children should be seen and not heard." "Aren't you just a little darlin'?" translated as "Spare the rod, spoil the child." and was meant to be heard by parents.

They made two versions of the 71, the tall one like you have is the most common but there is a short version the same height as the SVEA 123 that also fit the Sigg cook set. You seem to like to make random stuff.  I had a orphan 123 and smithed a little pot stand out for it from flat stock and copper  rivets.  Goes good with my beat up tea kettle.  It would have to be a little higher for the 71.

As long as she's not saying that if she happened to catch you with your pants down!

Marty,  I like the  pot stand!  Well done!  so you formed the ring from straight stock?  Not so easy to do well!

Duane, I would be glad to make you a little stand, just send me the stove dimensions.  I try to make the height match the demensions of a stove stand so it has the right head space.  Yes, Outlaw, it takes some patience to make the ring and it does not come out perfect.  I’ve learned a couple of tricks along the way but can still be frustrating. The hard part is I don’t have a working forge anymore and do it all with a Mepps torch.   I usually use copper rivet but sometimes use common nails for rivets.  I do have a post vice and a medium anvil.  Garage blacksmithing is kinda fun.

Thanks for the inspiration, Marty!

I'll have to see what I can cook up from stainless scrap. I think an integrated windscreen would be a good thing, as the original tin also worked as a windscreen.

Timm,

Maybe you can make a stove tin out of a Heineken 5 liter mini-keg.  It would be the ultimate companion to your Keggerator.  🙂

I have all the parts from a Preway CI 3-burner. I've been wanting to cut a keg in half horizontally and make a stove from it, but I can't figure out how to cut the keg that way due to the rings and chines on both ends.

Careful setup and clamping in a (Large) abrasive cut-off saw?  Or a large band saw?

There are a couple of metal fabrication places around here. I can probably find one that has a giant bandsaw to do the job. I've been dreaming about this idea for years.
