Thanks again Neil.

I did a weeny bit of work this weekend.

First, a test of the new propane torch by doing some final annealing of the outer boiler wrapper and firebox wrapper.

Lastly, I tried my hand at some copper tube bending and cone fabrication for the pressure gauge.

Hmmm,no criticism but I just know you would have made an absolutely fabulous job of a castellated joint on that seam and avoided the butt strap.

For next time.
