I have what sems like a well made boiler Coper silver soldered, and I have presure tested to 150psi, and no leaks.

The original boiler is stamped up as;

TESTED 200psi 6 89 Stamped with B&E number 266

I have tried to look up, but without any findings. Can anyone suggest who the manufacturer may be. Thanks

Hi James

A guess on my part, but it might be a Winson Kit build perhaps with the date of 1989 and Boiler & Engine number 266.

I think they made a lot of 57XXs, but dates I don't know; another owner of one might be able to confirm what is stamped on their's ?

Bishop Ellis I would think. I have a couple of their boilers and they are well made. Do you have any paperwork with it,you might be able to trace the history.
