Hi David, have a look here. The boiler lagging kit gives a nice looking finish to the boiler and provides good insulation also. There will be sufficient material in the kit to lag your 3 1/2" boiler with material to spare. As has been mentioned in an earlier post, coffee shop wooden stirrers make great lagging for small engine cylinders, my own preference being for McDonalds, available free by the handful for the price of a coffee!

Regards Martin.
