    I just spotted this build, it is very impressive. It's fun to see how others find clever ways to machine castings. You are certainly a master at your craft!

    I should have looked into the carriage bolt idea. I forged the heads on 30 spokes last week & when the zinc plating burned off I had a cough for 3 days now. (Better today!) I still have 75 more to forge. I'm going to move this operation outside & stand up wind from the torch next time!

    Wow, It really works great! I thought about making a small bandsaw mill someday. I have a Woodmizer LT-15.

    I built a Buzz Saw to use with my Steam Engine. 20" dia. blade. Hopefully I have enough HP to cut off some sticks!

    How soon can the boiler water be drained after steam-up? I'm sure it isn't a good idea to shock cool the boiler. Once the pressure drops to zero the temp should be less than boiling temp.

    This is how I plan on keeping my boiler dried out!

    I found a really nice cast iron seat at my wife's uncle's aution sale. I made a removable bracket the fits under the hitch mount, I need to get the height figured out, & where to hang my feet??
