Re: Alcohol Burner

Thank you all for the replies, RM, I like your design, are you using Stainless steel for Material? Please keep posting pictures as you progress, Thanks! Sure thing! Yes the base plate and burner tube plus the arch are all SS. The burner block or nozzle will be brass and I’ll Machine that next. Ther...

Re: Angry ANGUS

Cross posting my Alcohol burner pics. The real commentary on this is on the main forum post. This is as close as I can interpret to the Master Steve Bratina’s design that has been so successful is several of his 3/4” locomotives. I’m not done yet but I managed to get pretty far today. Cheers, RM htt...

Re: Alcohol Burner

Here’s the intake holes. These come out to roughly 75% of the flue area so I’m not sure if that’s too much or too little? Comments on that would be much appreciated. I need to make the burner block and wrap up the mount holes next but I’m done for the night.... Cheers, RM https://uploads.tapatalk-cd...

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...
