That couldn't be a very old model, it has a stir stick. Did V1 have that? Sux that it split, hope something can be worked out for you. *also couldn't help notice the different inner ring where the bowl connects looks different than my model. Mine has an outer lip that covers the wood, yours looks fully inserted, with no lip. Not sure what my point is other than noticing the difference, and hoping you were sold a genuine lotus.
