Here is a second Record of this type to be entered on the gallery. This example is probably slightly younger than the one already here . The reason for thinking this being that the other example has plain leg bottoms whereas this one has little feet at the ends of the legs. Otherwise these two examples are identical to each other, and also identical in all respects to the external NRV Optimus No.1s of the years leading up to and including 1915. The hugely long pump tube, fixed solidly into the stove tank at both ends, is exactly the same size and form as that used by Optimus. The pump rod alone is an impressive 15.5cms long! The only markings on the stove are those on the tank top, all of the lids and covers are plain unmarked: All of this makes me wonder whether Optimus might have taken over Record stoves by then, and were simply using the Record name on these for some marketing purpose? or could it be that Record were building them on licence from Optimus?
