Re: Live steam teflon rings

Thank you. That is exactly what I needed. I will try my one local magazine distributor this morning, and if that fails, I will give you a call.

Thanks!

Live steam teflon rings

Apparently there was a recent article in a magazine talking about using Teflon rings in a live steam locomotive (in my case it is for a LE American). Did anyone see this article and does anyone know a source for these rings?
Thanks.

Re: SOLVED: Sight Glass water drops during running

The repair originally started because of a bad tube. The boiler has had the tubes removed and inspected and will shortly be welded back together, re-tubed and put back into use. In this attached photo, you can see the "wall" has been removed and water flow will be a lot better now. This boiler did s...

Re: SOLVED: Sight Glass water drops during running

Sometimes it takes 2 years to solve a problem, and now I have final closure to this problem. As a quick recap (so you do not need to go and reread the previous 10 pages - although they are very interesting), the problem was on a 1 1/2" propane fired Mogul, the water would drop in the sight glass whe...

Re: Any f7 builders? Looking for guidance

Thanks Steve - that is a good looking example and I will study the photos carefully. I am trying to figure out how to finish a fiberglass f-unit and looking to see what was used as vent covers, etc. Can you tell me what kind of material you used for the side vents??

Thanks.
Dale.

I just recently got a raw fiberglas f7 body - in unfinished condition. I was looking to connect thru PM and then e-mail with anyone who has finished an f7 a-unit.

I need the draft, but was wondering if there is any way to make it quieter, and less obtrusive? I do not posess great machining tools, or skills so cannot do a highly machin...

Thanks.

Re: Anti-matter is real: conclusive proof

I am pretty convinced that the screws and tools I drop reach 88mph before hitting the floor. This explains why when you search and search for something and cannot find it, it suddenly shows up at the place you already looked, but in the future! See?? Simple!
