Radiator vent

I just took off my a1 vent to adjust the speed and there was 3 drops of water in it - is that normal?

    I have a Hoffman 1a and it’s hard to adjust the number with my arthritis.

    If you think about it the steam air vent has to have steam enter it in order to close. There will always be some moisture in it from the steam.
    Older air vents had a "tongue" that hung into the radiator to drain this very condensate.
