Re: Steam pressure gauges is there any interest in them?

Re: Steam pressure gauges is there any interest in them?

Just updated the website to add 200, and 160psig gagues. The 200psig ones all say locomotive, the 160psig ones don't and would be perfect for auxiliaries such as compressed air. Here's some photos; 160psig gauge.JPG 200psig gauge.JPG If there is any interest probaby next run will be to do some 2.5" ...

Re: Verifying Blast nozzle height

A simple trick here one live steamer taught me when I had issues with my blast nozzle, couldn't keep the fire going when I first stared my engine and had to push it around the track. I was pretty discouraged till a fellow live steamer taught me a trick. Rig up the thing to compressed air and hold a ...

Re: Steam pressure gauges is there any interest in them?

After producing the first round of these gauges and selling out in a whole weekend the second round hasn't been as encouraging and I still have a bunch more of them for sale. If interested either see the classifieds or here's the website that I set up to sell them on https://www.modelgauge.com/. Now...

Re: Model Steam Pressure Gauges

I opened up an online store for these gauges where I currently have the 300psig versions for sale in both brass and nickel plate I have yet to hear from John so right now they are all for sale. I hope to add a few more options in the near future. https://www.modelgauge.com/ In the case where I am no...

Re: Model Steam Pressure Gauges

Glad to hear everyone is enjoying the gauges so far. We're working on getting ready for the next batch of them. As far as pressures I can do 160psig with/without the words locomotive on it right away if there is interest in those. I am thinking some of the 160psig gauges may be handy for compressed ...

Re: Steam pressure gauges is there any interest in them?

One question - how do you verify the gauges will accurately register what they indicate on the gauge? I’d be interested in maybe a couple of gauges, if they register at least up to 250 PSI. Thanks Glenn Glenn, the gauges themselves are a commercially available 300psig pressure gauge which I then ov...

Re: Model Steam Pressure Gauges

To answer a few questions; Tim 2" is the dial face itself measured at the largest diameter of the bezel. The case itself is is nominally a little larger than 1.5" the whole gauge stands about 1-1/16" tall. Howard, it seems like last time this came up the consensus was most guys wanted something in t...
