Hi,

I am still dithering regarding the type of valve gear to use so move things on I decided to make a start on a simple regulator and a lubricator. First some holes were drilled in the base board to accommodate them.




As the orientation of the cylinder had been decided on it was fixed in place with four nuts and bolts.



With the cylinder removed an opportunity was taken to enlarge its hole in the baseboard.






A start was then made on the regulator body.



Regards Tony.

Hi again,

I didn't have to do what I thought I had to do so did some more on the regulator. I hope the photographs show the construction of a fairly standard simple regulator. The hand wheel was purchase in a craft shop in a packet with many others for a few pounds.








Regards Tony.
