Does anyone have a drawing for such an item suitable for a 5" Pansy. I believe they seal very well?

I have used loctite bearing retainer with great results. Its extremely viscuos and not too hard to undo. Its especially good for sealing around water gauge glass if the fit is less than perfect. Its yellow, smells sweet and tastes awful!

this is the end of Sunday - most plates roughly cut to size with the plasma disc. I even labelled them up! Will keep you posted if interested - any questuins, please ask.

almost finished these two - individually marked out and drilled and very close! 12 holes 7/16 and 4 @ 1/2. The two outermost were supposed to be 3/4 for superheaters but thats a bit ambitious me thinks! The right hand stay hole has now been redrilled and tapped to take a brass ferrule which has an internal thread of 1/4 x 40 tpi for the blast steam transfer.
