Oz Steam Demon Chuff Pots
« on: April 05, 2024, 03:42:02 pm »
I am now the proud owner of five of Geoff’s Chuff Pots.

The middle one was a gift from Stacey Rouze for helping with the sale of Scott’s Steam Collection.

The Chrome one was the last (or one of the last) that Geoff built for me; along with a Water Tower (not pictured).

The other three came from a deceased Mamod Forum Member’s estate (Ferrysteam).

You are one very lucky boy there Charlie!

I'm pretty darn lucky my-own-self, in that I have three Demon chuff pots, but each of mine is unique in some special way, even though two of them are based on standard, basic designs, like a couple of the ones you are showing.

Actually, looking closer at your photo, I see that at least two of yours have the special feature that I originally got Geoff to put on some of his production.

Wisdom is the domain of the Wis (which is extinct). Beauty is a French phonetic corruption of a short cloth neck ornament currently in resurgence..."

Thanks to the three of you.

Geoff had a huge impact on my addiction to this hobby.

I only wish I had been able to meet him in person. 🤠

Woe is me

I have one like the one on the left. I use it now and then and can still see him in that mask dancing.
The letter he included was dated Feb. 6th 2013, my 55th Birthday.

Nice array Charlie, I'm surprised no one has stepped into the void made by Geoffs passing in this area of chuff pots.

I am surprised too Bruce.

When I first got into the hobby, I made one out of a Weeden Boiler.  I gifted that one to Travis.

I have one that I bought from another fella in Australia that is made out of copper.
