6″ Vertical Boiler- Penetrations

by John

Another few hours in the workshop today.

Continuing preparing the parts for the boiler.  Drilled and reamed 9 holes and the bronze bushes which will be brazed into them.  The bushes provide the screw in points for water inlets and wet steam outlets, pressure gauge, water gauge.

All of these components are just sitting in place, but giving an idea of size and form.

There will be no progress on the boiler for a week, due to forced absence from the workshop.  Child minding the grandchildren.   Hmmm… I wonder if a 2 year old could help in the workshop?   Possibly not a good idea.   Yet.
