Re: Blower Valve Vs Injector Steam Valve

The valve you would use for a blower can be used for an Injector, and in my opinion on-off/quick start valves should not be used for injectors. They greatly limit an injector’s performance. They have a huge range of capacity when using a regulating steam valve, and even the lifting type will prime m...

Re: Full sized injector from scratch

Thank you all for the kind words. I’ve been working on some of the last small items while waiting for the bodies. I should have castings next Monday. The spindle guides were quite fun to make, and it was even more fun to see the steam valve and handle assembly come together. I hope you all had an en...

For an Army 2-6-2t ?
No, I believe they found another to go on that engine. That was a 3.2 Sellers injector.
Not sure if I can say who these are for, but they will need more in the future.

Re: Full sized injector from scratch

All the other bits and pieces for the injector are just about done. Still a few more things to do but nothing major.

Full sized injector from scratch

Hi everyone, You may have noticed things have seemed slow from Eccentric Engineer lately, but I promise I haven't been lazy! I had the pleasure of machining a full set of rods and valve gear for an articulated locomotive, made molds for the 1" scale simplex, have been shooting waxes for the 1.6" com...

Re: 1” Scale Consolidated Safety Valves

Here’s a picture of a production safety valve. Injectors take longer to make but safeties are definitely more difficult. I think I may cut one in half...

1” Scale Consolidated Safety Valves

1" scale safety valves are almost done and will start shipping next week. I don't typically take orders before product is finished, but since safeties need to be set to order, I've decided to let customers place orders a week early. I'm very happy with the final product, and I think you will be too!...

Re: Feedback requested, PRR junction box

Roll form taps work well in this material. It pushes the material to form the thread rather than cutting, and the tap itself is much more rigid than a fluted tap. Drill needs to be substantially oversized, since material gets pushed inward creating the final minor diameter.

Re: injector problem

I'll reiterate the notion of swapping the injectors. This is the surest way to quickly find out if it's the injector or the installation. Having some limited experience with injectors, 10/10 times the issue is with the installation. No water filter, suction leak, restrictive check valve, injector in...
