The Optimus #85 'Loke', a good idea
on paper, but one which never really caught on! Build a
kerosene/white gas stove with a nesting panset and windshield.
But the steel tank and brass 'silent' burner put the stove in the
heavyweight class at 1.4kg. This brand new stove in its padded
case was found lying in an outdoor shop ten years after the stove
was discontinued by Optimus...!
A stove to warm any 'Wickkie's' heart..! Standing 9" tall in its metal frame this Chalwyn 'Oma' wick stove from the early 1970's is in mint condition. Owned by Jan Hurst in England the original instructions have been photocopied and can be seen behind the stove.
Very nice Primus Model 45, a
collapsable 13/4 pint
stove popular for Family or small group catering.
Note the outer burner cap is missing from the 'silent' burner, stoves are often found with one or both inner and outer caps missing.
Two views of a Tilley CS1
paraffin stove from the early 1950's.
The obvious use of 'Guardsman' Stormlantern components
makes for a heavy but powerful and durable stove.
A four burner 'Rocket stove' used
for group catering or instrument sterilisation by boiling in
remote hospitals. The unit would stand under a metal tripod or
brick structure with a grid over the top. For clarity this stove
has had removed the four brass tubes which direct the flame
Over the years giant single burner and three burner models were produced. The Optimus 510 was last listed in the 1980's and some spares are still available.
