At your service!

Primus StovesPLEASE NOTE - 3 Dec 2018 Apologies to our customers who have experienced extended delivery times over recent months.  We have now put improvements & extra resource in place & will now be dispatching next business day.


Welcome to The Fettle Box!   Yes, this site is very modern but we are all about old fashioned service to collectors & enthusiast users of classic pressure stoves & lamps.


At the Fettle* Box we only use VITON for our 'Made to Last' rubber seals for use with paraffin or petrol stoves & lamps.  This superior material was originally designed for the US military for use in jet engines & today is found in demanding applications in the petrochemical, automotive & many other industries.


VITON is much more expensive than nitrile but the Fettle Box is able to offer our VITON seals cheaper than most nitrile offerings by cutting out the middle man.  We manufacture our own 'Made to Last' seals using our own quality press & tooling.  Not only do you get great value for money - you also get longevity!


We supply parts, washers, seals & kits for many common types of pressure lamp & stove & frequently add new items to our range.  If you don't see the washer or seal you require please let us have details of the dimensions & the material & we may be able to make them for you.  If we can there is no minimum order if we have the material in stock.  We can make seals out of lead, asbestos-free gasket materials,  HDPE, cork, VITON, nitrile etc


Want to know more about vintage lamps & stoves?   Our owner is a collector of long standing & set up the Classic Camp Stoves & Classic Pressure Lamps (& Heaters) forums.  There you will find reference galleries & libraries & active communities to help with general advice & fettling. You will be made most welcome but beware  - collecting these old beauties can be infectious!



*Fettle - to fix or repair, to make good.
