    Concerning these smoker units- I have a couple of them and I like the concept of not developing unnecessary heat in my models, not to mention the water vapor is much more in keeping with a steam vessel as it reacts to atmospheric conditions and the only residue is water - topside and engine room.

    Another perhaps even more important item about these units is the customer assistance provided by Denes Design. As I mentioned I have two of these units and both of them worked flawlessly when they arrived. Alas, after trying to operate them like I did the oil-type smoker I compromised both control modules.

    At the risk of being too long winded, I'll explain my fault as it may save someone else the same fate:
    I had the oil type smoker set up on an independent ESC so I could turn on/off the unit and increase or decrease the amount of smoke at will through a potentiometer in my transmitter. Obviously, the output of the ESC varied which the heating element didn't mind. The Denes Design units want a constant voltage to the control module and relies on a signal from the receiver to increase/decrease the volume of vapor consonant with the shaft RPM. The way I tried to hook up the unit (I used the ESC output as the power source to the DD control module,) allowed the voltage to fluctuate from 0 to 12V and if I wasn't careful the polarity could be changed (as the ESC thought the boat was backing up) which was also detrimental as voltage polarity is critical to the Denes Design.

    I contacted DD via email, described what I had done and received a very civil and thorough trouble-shooting email within hours describing how to determine the severity of the failure and how to remedy the issue.
    I suspect other providers would have been more than happy to just sell me another unit citing my failure to follow the instructions.

    In short, the units work great and the help from DD is exceptional.๐Ÿ‘

    Hi,

    Nice thick Smoke/Steam from a lego tug.

    I can see many new ideas how people use the Denes Design Smoke/Steam Generator ๐Ÿ˜Š

    That's all right, Mr Ryan. My Morse is so rusty, I could be sending him dimensions on Playmate of the Month.

    Good Morning Gents,

    I was thinking on how I can upgrade the Steam Generator.
    My maximum I can add a Middle Set Button.

    What do you think?

    Hi Dainesh,
    I want to tell everyone here that you are an honest person.
    You did a great job, everything went perfectly. Thank you very much.
    In January, as soon as my cutter is roadworthy, I will order the third steam engine from you.
    Just awesome, instead of the other power-guzzling devices.
    These unnecessarily heat the innards of the ships when space is limited.
    My next project will be the sternwheeler, which I put on hold because my cutter needed an overhaul.
    thanks Dainesh, ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
    hobbyist greetings Michel-Cl.
    Ps: More photos regarding the installation of your steam engine in the cutter will follow soon
    if you don't ask, you won't get an answer!

    Hi Gents,

    I tried to connect two Denes Design Steam Generators together, the result was pretty good so I created a video about it.

    Hi Dainesh!
    Thanks for getting back, I think it might just work, I'm going to look into the possibility, even if that particular system won't work there must be one that will.

    Hi Ron,

    I guess it is possible, you just have to create a proper plumbing for the smoke ๐Ÿ˜Š
    I just saw my system in tug boats, but it is time to try them in other vessels๐Ÿ˜‰
