    Posting this additional Lux No.1 mainly because this one is marked '1A' as opposed to just plain '1'. But I've got no idea why. In every other respect I can see it is just the same as all the other 'No.1's!

    It can now be fired up again as can be seen. But having achieved this it will only be very occasionally in future due to leakage around the font base. Even getting this far took some doing as it had suffered the indignity of having been a polished ornament for some years, leaving a legacy of unexpected hidden problems.

    A lovely looking stove and in great condition for its age.
    It does not look like it has been used a lot. If it had, the tops of the steel pan supports would be very deteriorated.

    It is a shame that you will not be using it much because of the leaking base.
    There are members here who would willingly tell you how to solve the problem if you contact them.
