Steve, your doing a fantastic job with those and one looks like a Showmans version with all the blingy brass.

I am surpirised no one has asked what price the kits will be and when orders can be placesd. Razz

Seriously though, it is a credit to you and a good advertisement for you and your company.

Cheers

Did you notice the range on the pressure gauge? 0 - 1000psi! Working pressure is 450 to 600psi. At 600 psi theres an equivalent force of 85 tons trying to force open the top tubeplate. That would bring tears to your eyes.

All the brass is lacquered. So no brass polishing for me thank you. And no dirty tubes to sweep. And no ash to clear out. And 40 mph. Can't wait to get it finished.

Regards

Steve
