Thatís really nice! I would love to see some pictures of the setup. Iím wondering how the generator is hooked up. They look to be at 90 degrees apart.
Best Regards

Have not steamed the machine yet, Arnold. I am frightened of the huge alcohol burner. I can't run it outside, only in my basement and I don't want to risk a fire.

Thanks for the picture Jim. Thatís a clever setup and I like it.

Iím know what you mean about running in the basement. I bought a center flue boiler and you canít get a clean burn in those tubes. I never had a problem with carbon monoxide with any of the open burners in a firebox.
Best Regards
