    hello I have a problem with an optimus 1200 flashlight.
    I bought it today and I have problems with the pressure clock, I do not know how to configure the pressure system inside.
    It seems simple but I don't realize

    It's probably almost impossible. someone has emptied it of contents, including the compression spring and soldered the entrance hole.

    This is what the missing components would look something like, a piece of precision engineering, you should be able to find replacement "
    Pressure Gauge".

    Hi!

    To repair I agree its almost impossible, but to repair/replace the contents of one with parts from a Butterfly one is possible, did it on a Optimus manometer that was also missing parts.

    See thread: Primus pressure gauge thread

    Regards Matti
