[MLC] The heat is on

Parallel to the water plumbing, I installed the gas valve and finished the plumbing as well. The burner was part of the boiler I bought second hand. The second part of the video features some overview and look out.

Hi folks, I just realized, that I posted the wrong video link in the last steam donkey posting. I just replace by the correct video of the steam engine rebuilt.

[MLC] Steam Donkey Update

Posted by Gerd on Friday, 4 February 2022 (Comments Closed) as

Hi folks,

I started work to refurbish the steam engine. First part is shown in the video below. The valve gear will need some more attention and will be handled in a separate part.

What I like to share is the photo below, showing the planned arrangement of the assembly. The donkey puncher is 10″ tall.
