    This is a boiler I have been working on for a couple months now I designed it myself.
    The firebox is tig welded 316 SS and it has 5 fire tubes in the boiler.
    It is eventually going to power a Stuart 10 V and a Stuart automatic feed pump.
    I am going to run it with hard wood and coal.
    It has been an interesting build so far that has taught me some new skills.
    My goal was to have it look mostly authentic but also be very functional for me to use without having any modern fasteners visible etc.
    I will continue to show the progress as I get further along.

    I hope it is just the angle of the photo or you have not fitted it yet, but I do not see a safety valve. It is a good looking boiler.
