    PHOTO bucket

    After receiving a less than pleasing email today from photobucket calling me a "naughty boy" for posting pics to a forum over a year ago, I will throw this into the ring. I was a subscriber to RCScalebuilder in the US for a number of years and it worked extremely well. To actively participate...

    Suitable boiler plans for a 1 1/2" bore Stationary Engine

    Thanks John, I have since seen some plans published in Australian Model Engineer magazine, but as I am now building a NSWGR C32 class locomotive from the Winter plans, I will just tap some steam from that to see the mill engine run on steam. Admittedly that will be quite some time away, now...

    A small boiler

    Hear, hear. There is nothing more frustrating, than to find what was obviously a very informative build, open it up and find all the photographs are not there!!!!!!!

    6" Copper HRT Boiler Build (warning, long build and lots of pictures)

    I watched your thread start and have followed it with interest. As I am about to embark on a boiler build to run a 1.5" bore mill engine, just wondered if you have made any more progress with your boiler. Cheers, Ned

    8" Steel Scotch Boiler

    Hi Bob, I am following with great interest. Just wondering if you intend on getting the boiler certificated. One more thing, I am also in the market for a 3 in1, but there are so many out there, it is a minefield - you sound happy with yours. Would you mind letting us know which one you...

    Tony, Many thanks for replying, and the link to your boiler build pics. They are very well done and provide some valuable insight into building a boiler. Did you ever get the PDF done?? Cheers, Ned

    Suitable boiler plans for a 1 1/2" bore Stationary Engine

    Marty, I have only recently downloaded the two Harris books (after I started this thread) and am still reading. Some great stuff there. I have ordered a set of plans for a 5" vertical boiler which I may be able to adapt to my requirements. I'm thinking that maybe a 6" diameter boiler about...

    Photographs missing from older topics

    i have found a few topics of interest and thought I had found what i was looking for, but when I get to the thread, i find that all the posts are there, BUT ALL THE PHOTOGRAPHS ARE REPLACED BY A BOX SAYING THE PICS HAD BEEN REMOVED. Very frustrating. Is there a reason for this????

    O. B. Bolton Mill Engine

    Thanks to those who have made encouraging comments. Here it is running on 10 PSI compressed air. I am still having difficulty in locating plans for a suitable boiler to run this engine on. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMYLlfHXN_0

    O. B. Bolton Mill Engine

    Hello all, I have just completed this horizontal mill engine, beginning with unmachined castings. It is presently only running on air, as I continue to search for plans for a suitable boiler for this size engine. 1 1/2" bore. Will post a video soon. A few photographs here

    Suitable boiler plans for a 1 1/2" bore Stationary Engine

    Hello all I have just built a Bolton No:7 mill engine - 1 1/2" bore and I am finding it extremely difficult to find plans for a boiler to run this engine. By that, I mean plans for a boiler I might be able build myself, but most of my research leads me to ready made boilers for rather...
