Mick,
What a beautiful rebuild, your craftsmanship, not only with wood , is an inspiration.
Look forward to seeing the steam plant installed.

Hi Frazer,
The boiler is 3.25" dia, my good friend George (ooyah2) supplied the plans for this very efficient boiler, thanks to all for your interest and comments.

The plant is going in a Krick Alexandria which I am currently rebuilding purchased over 3 years ago from a MBM member described as Museum quality, its that Museum with no windows or lights, I was going to give it a Vikings funeral but decided to rebuild it as the kits cost over £200.00. When finished I will it sell to recoup my costs.

Yes KNO3 it is,  I would think most of 20 current curiosity watchers are from this forum.

Part 2
The port drilling measurements are critical, a good centre punch  is essential I use a 3/32 drill first to make sure they are correct before drilling to 5/32. The reversing valve is machined from gunmetal.
The cylinders were machined from 25mm dia brass, top & bottom cylinder covers and cross heads from phosphor bronze, piston rods stainless steel.
