    Princess Model

    Anyone have any idea where I could find an HB Smith Princess Model Rad. 19 sections, floor standing, 32' tall.

    The one that is currently installed has started leaking out of the bottom of the first section. Maybe about a teaspoon full in a couple days.

    Pic

    I don't have a pic, unfortunately. I could get one easy enough I suppose. It has a plain look. Rounded top and only 2 tubes per section.

    Actually, this is the one. https://archive.org/details/DirectRadiators Two column Princess. Just flip through that book thingy till you get to the right page.

    Is the leak

    at the joint between two sections? If so, all you probably need is to replace the push-nipple that joins the sections.

    Leak

    I misspoke. The leak is in the first regular section, not the one with feet on it. The drop of water appears on the very bottom of the section, as it most certainly would. I ran my finger along the bottom of the section on each side of the drop and felt no wetness. I would appear that it's leaking through the seam in the section itself.

    A1

    Try A1 for used sections. They are in Somerville, MA.
