machines which I have made, am making, or intend to make, and some other stuff. If you find this site interesting, please leave a comment. I read every comment and respond to most. n.b. There is a list of my first 800 posts in my post of 17 June 2021, titled "800 Posts"
6″ Vertical Boiler- Steam Outlet & Safety Valve Standard
Some more progress over the last 2 days.
The chimney flare sitting in its intended position. The attachments at the smokebox are completed.
The smokebox tube plate, waiting for its firetubes. The bronze fittings are the safety valve and its standard on the left, and the main steam outlet standard on the right, sitting in position.
My workbench becomes increasingly cluttered as a job progresses.
Silver brazing is the next step. There will be 2 major soldering sessions, with boiler inspections after each one. I will enlist some extra hands and expertise for the soldering. (Stuart, I hope that you are reading this.)
