    Date stamped AN 8, so pretty late for this model. Unfortunately without the shade. I borrowed one from another lamp in the first picture just to show how it's supposed to look. It doesn't belong to this lamp in reality.

    This is one that's been tucked away for a long time.
    Since it didn't got any shade, I never really payed any attention to it. An indoor lamp without a shade of some sort is pretty useless as I see it, hence why this one has been neglected.
    The idea was that I should make one myself since Bo Ryman most kindly gave me all dimensions and material specs a long time ago (long before I got the lamp that still had an original shade).
    But unfortunately nothing has happened yet. :oops:
    One of these days...

    However, I was bored tonight, so I dug the lamp out.
    I decided to keep the jet, but the needle was broken so I replaced it. And here's the mandatory flameshot to see if all is OK before tying up a mantle.

    Looks as it's supposed to, so later when it gets dark I will test it with a large Peerless.

    That didn't happen.
    I found an old 500CP mantle of the cheaper kind that has strayed out of it's package so I took that one instead just to get rid of it (500CP is a good versatile size that fits all lamps in good condition from 250 to 500).
    It performed flawlessly.
    But hey! what other to expect? It's a Primus... :D/

    Its a awesome nice lamp Christer, pleasing lines and the shade fits it like it always were there. :thumbup:
    The burners Jet-part looks a bit like the Primus 1381, though not quite the same.
