Anthony, when you say you used a triple-lead thread, is this the same as a thread with three starts? In other words, one turn of the handle moves the valve a distance equal to three times the thread pitch?
That is correct.

Re: Nathan Monitor Injector in 2.5"

Tim, The steam valve is 3/16” OD with 3 leads at a .075” pitch. Doesn’t really show on the spindle but you can sort of making out 3 leads on the chamfer of the yoke. Forgive the dirty fingers!

Nathan Monitor Injector in 2.5"

I started designing the 2.5" Monitors back in August 2014. I figured they would make a nice dummy body on a locomotive I hoped to build. Well, going through Nathan drawings and looking over model injector designs, this project grew into a love for steam injectors that got a little out of control. I'...

Re: Shout out to Dave (Trainman4602)

One of the things I hear most often at train meets is "I'm not ready for them yet." Then I usually get a call when I don't have what they need in stock and the customer is in a pinch to finish the locomotive before a meet. Buy what you're going to need when it's available if you can, and it's more u...

Re: EE Product Updates - 5/3/19

Matt, I’m only getting 171 back, so there’s only 170 left for everyone else. Sent off new monitor waxes. If they look good I’m thinking those will be next after the large injectors and safeties. This is the project that got me interested in injectors in the first place, and I’m itching to deliver th...

Re: EE Product Updates - 5/3/19

I've been known to change my mind at the drop of a hat, but at the moment I think 1/4" is as large as I'll go. It fills a nice gap between what's currently available and the 3/8" penberthy. I understand the prices have gone up and the quality has gone down, but they are still available and old stock...

Re: EE Product Updates - 5/3/19

They are older castings being reintroduced. Molds were made by Ed Yungling in the 80’s.

Re: Colorado Narrow gauge

The locomotives were built by a combination of Cooke, Brooks, Baldwin, and Rhode Island Locomotives Works. So that would not hold up to the entire roster.

This first batch will consist of 80 injectors if I don't scrap any. I expect to have them ready in June. If you are interested in one let...

Re: Colorado Narrow gauge

Hi Matt, The number refers to the number of driving axles, and the last letter refers to when the class was built. For example, the Class B-4A consist of locomotives #30-36, which were the earliest B-4 class built in 1880. B-4B's were #37-56 and were built in 1883. The final class was the B-4F's (no...

Re: Steam Pump need help identifying

Based on the dimensions given, these castings are likely 1" scale. As a reference, in 1.6" the width of the castings should be close to 4", and overall height of the castings stacked together would be approximately 6.65". I suppose it's possible they could be made to work, but I don't think the cast...
