Stephen,

I understand what you say about Scott barrels working on both types of
Leblanc. I will ask at my local shop if these barrels are obtainable over
here - (U.K.). I certainly haven`t seen any. They might only be obtainable
on special order, which if the shop has any worth shouldn`t be too much
trouble.

Thanks.

Tony W.
