Re: 1" Safety Valve Progress and other updates

1" Safety Valve Progress and other updates

Hi everyone, I've been intermittently working on the safeties as time permits. Hoping to run a batch before the FLLS anniversary meet in August. For my first round of testing I paid an excessive price to have some springs made that ended up being too light. Wound some myself that seem to be working ...

Re: Another Injector Piping Question

The delivery line can be shared with other water inputs, but it must have its own check valve to prevent the output of other feeds interfering with the injector's operation. You also don't want the injector feeding back into other sources. It's best practice to have an injector's inputs and outputs ...

Re: 3/4" Scale J1e

Jack,

I apologize if I missed the information, but what are the overall dimensions of your brake cylinder casting? I may need one for the 3/4" pacific.

Re: Another plumbing question

A standard globe valve will work more than fine. The idea that steam needs to be blasted into an injector for it to work best is nothing more than a myth. We're spoiled that these miniature injectors are able to work with a blast of steam at all. Most, including full sized, don't.

1.6” Scale “LEACH” Sander Fittings

I am making a very limited run of early style “Leach” sander fittings in 1.6” scale (1:7.5). These were found on some locomotives built in the late 1800’s. They will be $40 for a pair, machined with 7/32”-40 internal threads. A bit of an odd size, but this represents 1.25” pipe in 1.6” scale. I will...

Re: 3/4" Scale J1e

Jack, I can hardly wait to see what you do with this engine! Memories of finding that chassis came to me every time I walked through the consignment tables at Cabin Fever last weekend. Looking forward to posing #5544 next to #4683, and I'm glad to see your personal projects getting some TLC. Anthony

Re: Intermediate Injectors in stock

Also, I get a lot of compliments on the quality of these castings. Part of the reason they are so nice is that they’re not castings! All of the EE line injectors are machined from solid aluminum bronze. This gives me full control over quality and supply. I have TWO injectors that showcase the “raw” ...
