|Thread: Steam plant layout|
Just enter above on you tube.
I used real slate floor slabs, 1/12th scale dolls house supplier, and fitted guard rails.
Would arrange with a central boiler and engine either side nd possibly a dynamo / lamp standard.
Seperate lubricator for each engine - lubricatotors should ideally be as close to steam chest as possible.
A hand operated stuart water pump to a boiler clack would add a nice useful touch.
An " in keeping " oil seperator would not be out of place. Mine, in a similar set up to yours, is a piece of 2 inch copper tube with brass bands around it, made to look like an oil barrel. Horizontal on blocks.
|Thread: Carette Stork Leg|
Reply posted again as reply very small
Unusually low on this model - only 10 psi,
Hydraulic test would be 2 x wp which is 20 psi
Test gear - any simple hand pump such as Stuart would suffice

|Thread: Bending small copper tube|
cl radius ? Do not understand ?
Cannot help on 5/32 but a 3mm Dubro gives a bend which is 5mm internal, 8mm external with a midpoint of 6.5mm.
I would suspect that the 5/32 Dubro would be worth a try .
