« on: October 07, 2020, 07:19:56 pm »
This is a nice boiler rig.

I have 2 of this type so this one can go to a new home.

I will sell it at Coolspring (October 14-17)  if it doesn't sell here first.

Features:
  • 2 brass steam throttle valves piped to the steam dome
  • Pressure switch for heater control
  • 1500 watt Ogden immersion heater
  • Heater power on lamp
  • Site glass
  • 2 safety relief valves
  • Check valve to pipe a hand pump to
  • Pressure gauge
  • 120 volts
  • Works great!
  • Boiler vessel 18" long
  • Length overall 24"
  • Stout piece of hardware weighs about 35 lbs dry.
Asking $600 or best reasonable offer.

There will be a video up soon.

Interesting...may I ask what the diameter of the boiler is ? More photos would be great as well.

Hi Bruce, the brass outer shell is 5" in diameter. There is a small layer of insulation between the brass outer sleeve and the boiler vessel. I'll look for more pictures of it or take some more. I found a picture of the other similar boiler.
