    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!

    First Steam Up 3/7/2021 Video Link https://photos.app.goo.gl/C6VQwDgWc4qAXEjj9 I have a few leaks to fix. My preheater leaks exhaust steam from the engine. I need to seal this up. Also the packing on my mechanical water feed pump leaks. Otherwise I am very pleased with the way it runs. I...

    You did not offend me. I need all the help I can get. My propane burner doesn't get hot enough, after 2-1/2 hrs. I only have 22psi of pressure. I need more btu's I guess!

    I tried yesterday, however my propane burner doesn't get hot enough. I drilled out the orfise and now I finally have about 20psi after 2 hrs. Still need more btu's I guess! May need to get the dry oak firewood out. I haven't moved the tractor outside yet.

    Thank-you for the advise. On my first fire I need to verify that my mechanical feed pumps work without leaking. Check to make sure my sight glass works correctly. I don't plan on going over a 100psi this first run. Just want to check for leaks & make sure everything functions properly. With...
