hi Derek,  our test equipment is defunct and very old, and I'm not even sure where it is anymore. we have several stwam boats that need testing, but i want to get a new set of equipment, hence the question. the idea being that I will train up to be competent to take up the mantle

Hey Klunk....

Rather than suggest any of what you are aware of in Volume 2 of your 2018 UK Boiler Test Code, why not talk with the local Club or Association Boiler inspector who will ultimately witness test the boiler

This will eliminate any confusion or heartache

Derek.......[I needed a pump to perform the boiler hydro-static boiler test, so made it into a fixture]

I was having a chat with a mate and we started searching for Martin Howes and Baylis, all we could find was a site making and selling the steam engines, does this mean that the models are no longer made or has another company taken over the business. If anyone can help with news many thanks in advance.

It seems for some reason, no photos exist or have been found post early 1943. All I can find out about the last conversion was that they only carried 4 single 20 mm oerlikons. Peter Scott only mentions the .5 vickers and 3" in Eye of the Wind. I'll have to find my Narrow Seas and see if anything in it.

right, I'm after some info on what i need for steam test equipment. I know I will need a calibrated pressure gauge, a means of hydraulically presurising the boiler, blanking playes etc,  but where do i get this stuff from,  plus anything else i need! this us to test to the orange book, volume 2 and volume 3.

Hello, I've only just stumbled across this thread, looks like a very interesting build - I'll have to have a good read through  :o

Thanks for pointing this out Martin - I must admit that I hadn't read the date at the start  :embarrassed:
