Best of luck on this listing Jed. I have it on my watch list, but can't actually think of an engine that I "need" it on. Could be useful as insurance against Murphy though, so I'll be watching and thinking!

Jed, absolutely the most beautiful boiler I have ever laid eyes on...perfect replacement for older Jensen riveted boiler.

I tried your link to video within the listing and got message:  "Video Unavailable"...so something wrong there.

Great piece of work.

Hi, I am interested in your replacement Jensen riveted boilers on ebay, and they look very well made. You mentioned 430 F solder, is this high enough knowing that water starts boiling at 212 F?

 Yes it is. Plumbing solder melts well below that.
