    Just aquired this hardly used Willis and Bates Vaparlux M1. I checked it over and put a new washer in the filler cap, plus lubed the leather and other parts.
    New Mantle and here is the result. Very pleased with this one! M1 test.jpg

    Good to see it running, it what it was made to do! Will you light the other M1 or keep it pristine?

    I'll use the other M1 more and bring the pristine one out rarely I suppose. They are both beauties though!
