  Does this one seem appropriate?
It is a PM setup - #1 engine, vertical
boiler, and feed pump.  I did not build
it.  I've steamed it up several times,
so it is a runner...

between cameras and it is an old photo
from the sale.

  I closed my eyes and bid.  I was astonished that I
was hi-bidder.  $500 was the most I've ever spent,
for me a mind-bending amount for a hobby.  It is
almost identical to the one pictured on the cover
of the catalog.  Allen-head bolts everywhere sealed
the deal.  They are the right way to go, demonstrating
the mindset of the builder.  On the other hand, he was
a glutton for O-rings...if one is good, three is better.
P.I.T.A. but removable.

Good luck,
Wayne

Wayne,
That's a great setup.
What psi do you run it at?
Does it have good grunt?

I am fascinated with functional engines and mobiles. So I try to have my table saws actually cut (balsa or paper), drills actually drill, grinders grind, etc.

I suspect your pmr would easily *cut* (thinking of Forged in Fire TV).
