Re: Boiler Barrel Material

With a nuclear analyzer, you need only a couple of square inches, Most large scrap metal dealers have one. If it were me, I would go see one (after a phone call) and ask. A $20.00 bill often works wonders!

Re: A champion is born.

Mike, and Paul,

I would love to see Paul's engine, your new engine, and Pam's engine triple heading. There would be enough power there to pull the world down!

Re: A champion is born.

Paul, That is such a beautiful engine! You should be very proud, my friend. My hat is off to you and Mike for the creation of such a magnificent engine. If it pulls even 1/2 as good as it looks, it will indeed be something to see.
