Re: Finger Lakes Live Steamers 50th Anniversary Meet

I'm planning on coming with my 1" pacific, and maybe my 3/4" pacific if I can get it rebuilt in time.
Looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and also seeing all the additions to the track!

Hi everyone, Standard injectors are restocked while inventory lasts. I will be at the Sacramento Valley Live Steamers fall meet this coming weekend and the Riverside Live Steamers fall meet the weekend after. I am hoping to have prototypes of both the Large injector and Intermediate injectors at the...

Re: WHO NEEDS CNC?

Practically anything that can be made with CNC can also be made with manual equipment, but it would be silly to suggest that the old ways are just as easy. Granted, in some cases they are neck and neck as far as cycle times and unattended running are concerned (the automatic cam-driven screw machine...

Re: Last two days R&D

Custom made springs should arrive in 2 weeks. Having scale safeties made a bigger difference to the engine's aesthetic than I expected.

Re: Injector size for My Sweet William

Thank you for the kind recommendation optigman. JohnR, I typically recommend that an injector be able to deliver twice the anticipated max consumption, however, boiler capacity is also a factor in the rate at which an injector will fill your boiler. If I remember correctly the Sweet William has a de...

Re: Live Steam CNC Defender

I would prefer not to discuss specific financial aspects of my business in a public forum. I decided to invest in a piece of equipment that was more than capable of producing aerospace or medical device components in the event that making only live steam parts wasn’t producing sufficient income. Thi...

Re: Live Steam CNC Defender

Thanks for starting this thread. My biggest problem with the anti-CNC sentiment is the suggestion that those who take advantage of the technology are just button pushers. A “button pusher” is someone who loads material and hits the green button after the real machinist has set up and programmed the ...

Re: Last two days R&D

I make a point to refrain from developing products that are already offered by other suppliers. Since SuperScale has been purchased, I have no intention of offering anything that was part of the SS catalog. There's no sense in cannibalizing its potential success. However, if I refrained from making ...

Nathan 1921 Starter Valves

Hi everyone, The starter valves are undergoing final assembly, however I still don't have everything I need to assemble the flanged connections, so I'm offering the spanner nut version first. If you have ordered a valve from me, please let me know if you are interested in the spanner nut version. I ...

Re: Last two days R&D

Hoppercar, mufflers are TBD.

It’s been brought to my attention that Australia (and possibly other regions) require that safety valves be manually operable by lifting the valve stem. So, I will gladly offer these safeties with an elongated stem by request.

Thanks Tom, noted.

They will be offered with 1/16” and 1/8” NPT adapters, and other sizes can be made by special order.
