Southworth Steam Boiler Feed Pump Progress.
With book reviews and OP’s workshops on this blog you might be wondering if anything is happening in MY workshop.
I have been beavering away, making parts for the Southworth steam powered boiler water feed pump. Today I made the final parts. The machining has been fairly basic and straightforward, so no special photos or videos.
I will make a separate blog about the gaskets. These were all laser cut. I will never hand cut another gasket. Laser cutting is cheap, fast and accurate. Way to go!
So now that all of the parts/components are made, I will commence the assembly, then the timing of the steam engine component. Watch this space.
Book review of “A Military History of China” coming up soon. Quite an eye opener.
If you have not sent in photos of your workspace, please do so. The series has generated quite a lot of interest.
