Thanks guys, a couple notes in case someone makes one, the hole in the exhaust pipe has to be tuned for your boiler.
Velocity is what has to be accomplished and boiler pressure maintained, on this one the hole is smaller than a pin.

Thanks Jim, that`s the hard part for me, most toys are stamped tin the head being the hardest part.

I was wondering about that.
Very impressed! 🚀🔭

You're super creative Lenn, always brings a lot of joy seeing what you and Norma can come up with and hand craft.

I always thought if something like your rocket man could be built with a propeller for propulsion it would be neat - just food for thought Lenn.
