    Not complete because the pump is missing and the main Bakelite body was cracked so I have glued it together. Interesting though and the only example of a Chinese iron I have seen. ::Neil::

    True but academic as without a pump it will be difficult to fire up and anyway I would be worried about the Araldite not standing the heat. Mind you it's condition dictated its price so I am not bothered. I think I found it on a steam rally in a pile of other junk and it was about £3. Just about low enough for me to buy it for the interest. ::Neil::
