    I've just posted details of this in the Fettle/ Frankenstein section. Basically I got this M1 running using parts from different models that I had in a box. The Glass is cracked, but good job I kept it spare!
    It's actually brighter than most of my other W&B lamps, probably due to a thorough clean of Jet (Bialaddin) and the vaporiser was quite tidy.

    I prefer that stepped style of ventilor anyway, compared to the mushroom type. Suits the M1.
