Re: Argent Lumber 3 spot

Steve Alley should have Gene Allen’s pattern for this stack. As I recalled in may be a little beat up, and it may not have a core box. We never cast it during the time I was involved.

Re: I understand castings cost a lot, but why drawings?

After briefly being in the supplier business a few years ago, I have learned not to fear the castings problem if I have the drawings. Especially in smaller parts, it is relatively easy to make a master pattern in 3-D modeling, and make copies for a match plate. Of course, during that brief period of...

For something similar to the Coles Worthington pump look at the Mich-Cal No2 pump drawings in Live Steam Oct 1986 and Dec 1986. This might be what you want. This uses no castings.

Re: Future considerations from EE

Anthony Being east coast, and having learned on a full size Sellers 7.5, I would like it. In 2.5” scale. I think they are very susceptible to different size cones, for different feeds. Steve Edit: and I think you can pick a size where a large 1.5” is about the size of a small 2.5. Just a different n...

Re: Kunkle safety valves

It has to do with the costs of certification maintenance. The No. 1 Kunkle is still the same, but other Kunkle valves cover this fired vessel range, so they only have a “U” stamp now. Our local state inspectors (Maryland) know this and give us no problem at annual inspection.
