Good to see it went for a decent price Jed, as someone else said no one else is doing them!

I can state the boiler is just as nice in person as it appears in the video and pictures.  Iíve got a #10 with a leaky boiler and this will sort that out nicely.  Glad someone is starting to make them.  I expect there will be quite the demand for these.  Know that you will be receiving one as good as has or ever could be made.

Good to hear it will fix your engine Matt, please don't throw out the old one, I am sure Jed or someone else here can fix that one too  ;)

Oh yes, that puts a smile on my face.

The background washed out the glowing lamp in the second pic, but you can see it reflected on the table in front of the engine.

Wow!

That looks great Matt.

I am glad it went to a good home and has already been put to work (or play depending on your perspective).  ;)

Good to see it doing what it was made to do .... and doing it well !

Jed has built a masterpiece of boilers...that is absolutely beautiful and nicer looking than day it left the factory.
