Is this boiler designed by a P/ENG?
What process did you use to weld the boiler with and what filler metals did you use? Was or is the TSSA involved? What materials did you use? Do you hold a current weld ticket for the process you are welding with?

Lol Sawyer, I'm not being critical or smart ass. I'm a code pipe welder by trade and huge steam enthusiast. Just asking because I'm interested in what your doing.
I'm fabricating an HRT boiler and I am exempt from code construction, or should I rephrase bound to ASME section one under the model boilers clause.

Are you ready for this, it's has a 10 inch shell and theoretically produces just under 1hp. All for a Stuart 10v 🤣. Have other intentions for the boiler. But the 10v is all I have (machining) currently.
