I have read the book by K N Harris on boiler making and have a understanding of the process.

Are there any plans that are available for a vertical boiler at around 6 inch dia maximum.

The book has plans but I prefer to have a drawing to work to if that's possible.

Also finding a supplier for the copper tube has also been difficult to find.

I was a sheetmetal worker so I have the confidence to make the boiler to a good standard.

Bob.

Tubal Cain did a series on the building of a 5" shop boiler in ME starting in Vol. 144 #3591 18 Aug. 1978. You might find it useful.

Joe at Macc Models on 01614082938. Keeps 4, 5 and 6 inch in stock plus the smaller flue tubes, foundation and firehole items. Well pleased with past service.

If you prefer to buy all items as a package, GLR Kennions do a fine 4 inch dia vertical kit with flanged and spotted end plates, also Forest Classics keep the PMR vertical and horizontal kits again with flanged plates.
