I just received a Consort I had won on ebay last week. Orange wax with amber master fluid. It's an earlier wood base model with the cylindrical stem and the disk on the base, it even has the often-missing original reflector inside. I was so happy it arrived undamaged. It works, flows good but the flow is barely visible through the cloudy master fluid. At the moment I'm trying cycling to see if it clears up. The fluid level is also a bit low which is unusual. Hoping I will be able to save at least the original wax.
Well, I was preparing to fix it once and for all but it looks like I will need to refill it with new liquid and wax. I was in the process of making new master fluid in a cup with the original wax when I knocked the cup over and lost all the wax . So I'll be looking for a replacement globe with orange wax to transfer into my Consort. Then I need to learn to control my flailing arms.
