    Well here's the pump working, but I think it is a bit slow so I have ordered a small geared motor to experiment with. It does shift water but I haven't tried it against boiler pressure yet...
    If it don't fit, use a hammer to make it fit....

    I have found the video of the Puffer's first test under steam, taken about seven years ago. It sits nicely in the water and certainly looks the part.....

    Hi Stephen. I'm fully capable of setting it up, I have 95% of the required parts, I'm just bone idle!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    Hi Nick,
    I wouldn't call it a cop out, why not use a commercial unit that has the bugs ironed out.

    Cheers,
    Stephen.

    I suppose it's a bit of a cop out really I have everything bar the sensor, but once I'd spotted the ABC it was in the post before I knew it!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

    Whilst looking for a sight glass sensor I came across this chap, who makes, amongst other things, an automatic boiler controller so I took the plunge and ordered one (don't tell the missus!). The chap that builds them is most helpful, he just spent 20 minutes on a whatsapp video call explaining all the features. It has built in failsafes, and if anything needs attention, either a blue or a red led lights up, these I will route up the mast so they are easy to see. The videos on his website explain all. Once the unit arrives I post photos, videos of the unit in operation..

    It is always interesting to see how other people work out challenges. I think it is one of the things that keep us motivated to dig into things and learn more.
    Keep us informed of your progress!

    Hi Nick,
    If you can get the auto system working reliably that would be the best in my opinion, looking forward to seeing your setup. ๐Ÿ‘

    Cheers,
    Stephen.
