Re: Alcohol Burner

Hopefully I’m on the right track here... I came home around 2:00 and got busy. I need to attach the upper section to the pan still and drill a bunch of holes. Plus I need to fabricate the burner block but I’d like to sleep on the idea for a night regarding the little tray in front on the hole or not...

Re: Alcohol Burner

This is me overthinking the deal but it’s something I’d like to try... I really can’t wait to finish this new locomotive and try out this burner. My Coventry Pacific is propane fired and it’s almost too easy. I need a challenge but I don’t want to turn to the black rocks. https://uploads.tapatalk-cd...

Re: Alcohol Burner

Here’s the basic layout I mentioned above. I’ll leave it up to Steve to chime in with detail if needed... I’ll add my “idea” about the burner in a second.

Re: Alcohol Burner

Here’s the burner that is similar to Steve Bratina’s. This is from some old GGLS archives that I have in my stash. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190102/adc5b484f1256d76520aabd6201cebf0.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190102/2893e07524b23f0a1c344acfd1a5fc2c.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cd...

Re: Alcohol Burner

It depends on how you design the burner Bill. I know of some that worked very nicely. I can’t wait to try out your style of Burner... I’ve got all the chunks of metal now and will most likely fab it up very soon. I wish there was a video of the flame coming off it so I can understand how it burns b...

Re: Angry ANGUS

Wrapped up the killer trucks from Jim Abrams today and started the overall mock-up of my SP’ish Vanderbilt tender. I’ll be using 6” Sch-10 stainless for the tank that I picked up at the local scrap yard... The end bell is a butt weld pipe cap that I ordered from McMaster Carr. I think it’s going to ...

Re: Angry ANGUS

Hey David, Good eye! The difference in color was from the heat to shrink them on the axles. And the black goop is the excess loctite retaining compound from the one fit that didn’t quite make the shrink tolerance.... ;-). They will all look pretty once I buff then out and wipe up that extra goo. The...
