Any idea when the boilers are likely to be ready and when will you be needing the second payment, cheers all. Very Happy

Dave

Did you get a reply from STW about the boilers or the boiler deposit? I hope that your Foden is coming on well.

Thank you for the information.  It is always good to know what is coming next and what the schedule is for the near future.  Any parts are always welcome but I look forward to receiving a boiler, as we have a number of parts which are waiting to be fitted to the boiler already.  I am not being inpatient, as I know that when we get the boiler we will have a great deal of work to do.

Hi Guys,

Just something to wet your appetite.

Here's the first two 6" Foden boilers almost complete. It is only taking just over a day (four per week) to get each boiler to this stage so they should be coming through quite quickly now. (Only 38 to go!!)

Don't get too excited yet as they still need to be machined and tubed and then tested/final inspected by RSA however this part is relatively quick in comparison to what has already been done.

That is one awesome looking bit of fabrication... I just love seeing pictures of the boilers for all engines you produce at STW, it's the heart of the machine & almost completely covered with "stuff" by the time all is finished!!

Actually, more pictures of general production would be appreciated... Craig!!! (As if you didn't have enough to do!!) Very Happy 

Reagrds,
Tony

Thank you for the update and the pictures of the boilers under construction - they look great. I have just got a text from Interlink Express for a delivery tomorrow but I think that this will be a bit early for a boiler!! I presume that this parcel will be the crankshaft. I look forward to collecting a boiler from the factory and being able to see all the team again.

You are going to need an engine crane when you do collect it.
I had a look at the first boiler while collecting the crankshaft kit ... and it is rather heavy !!!  Shocked Shocked 
I could not even start to lift it  Surprised 
So be prepared and get yourself ready for some heavy lifting  Laughing
