    Thanks to the efforts of fellow stovie Nagant, I'm the proud owner of this Lux No. 9. No, I won't be polishing it. :D

    I replaced the cap washer and the pip in the external NRV. I also cleaned and waxed the stove. That's it. Still runs after a hundred years or thereabouts. 8) Not sure the two potlegs I have are original to the stove. Maybe someone with greater knowledge than I can comment on this.

    The tank top stamping reads, "Strongest, Handiest and Most Efficient Stove".

    Cheers,
    Gary

    PS - the flame ring is "modern" and non-original.

    Thats a real nice stove.The markings are outstanding and they show up well on the unpolished stove.What seems remarkable is how nice and even the stove has browned up.Many old stove turn two or three different colors as they patinized distracting from the beauty.Nice job Gary
    That Nagent fella sure finds good stuff.

    Whoa Gary, what great flame shots! Doug is right on about the patina. I think it must have spent the last 95 years in a attic.

    It's a beauty that roars. You will need to bring this one to the stove meet in September.

    Hi Gary, what a wonderful old, classic stove. The patination is outstanding.
    I reckon the two legs you show are original, at least the form of the top bends is correct for a Lux stove.
    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Thanks guys. Steve, I've jotted down your request for the stove gathering. And, thanks George for the leg confirmation. I'd looked at the two catalogs here at CCS but all the pictures of the stoves had them fitted with trivets. I will have to see about making a third leg.

    I love the patina!

    Cheers,
    Gary

    Gary - the patina on that stove is wonderful.
    I am am so pleased you decided not to polish it.

    The whole stove is fantastic and I envy you!
