Trevithic Dredger Engine – New End Plate
The boiler inspector passed it, but I coud see that he was not too impressed. And neither was I, so I made another one. This time I made male and female wooden forms, annealed the copper disk and pressed the domed shape. Then re-annealed and hammered out the flanges.
I will keep the reject part. Might be useful for something, and will remind me to be more careful.
