Mayhem at Wicksteed 2017 - May 27, 28
Only an idea Derrick why don't you visit the Model Engineering exhibition at Alexandra Palace 20-22 January all the companies mentioned in the posts will be there save on postage and firms like Blackgates have boilers on there display for you to look at and ask questions and Steamboat Phil will be on the Blackheath stand you can ask him and he'll be able point you in the right direction.Also its a great day out.
Hi Derrick, I made the gas tank to Mr Peter Arnots design that has two valves one feeds gas the other feeds gas in liquid form to the pre heater on the burnerOn my other boats I use a small camping gas cylinder the back pack type although my ongoing build of Basil Harleys Victoria is meths fired. She again has a simple oscillator and a simple pot boiler and gives about 25 mins run time thats enough for me.There simply wasnt enough room on my River Queen to use a disposable gas cylinder. I prefer to use the disposable type as its just one less thing to have testedGood luckcheersfrazer
