Hello I myself think soldering is practice doing clean surfaces are the first step flux, type of solder and a good iron . Holding the pieces in jigs or clamps will assist in the final out- come. At first it seems very hard but practice will prove to help and soldering becomes a little easier. Rick

Hi Gary I looked at your harbour post pictures your boats look great. Yes after I ordered the parts I thought of a lever oiler combo will order that in the future when I can figure out the piping I will need and yes I can silver solder. Rick

Hi Gary Yes I watched the videos great work . I only have a small boiler but should get about 15 mins. run time and yes I'm hoping the eyes hold up the good thing is I can take my time at it. The slide valve timing may be another issue I will have to learn. Will keep you up to date when the engine comes in . Rick

Hello I have a steam plant to operate my new build but it has a shut off valve I will not be able to control the steam. The company I purchased the plant from doesn't have an RC valve . Ideas on shops I can search for the RC valve. Rick

AIR FOR STEAM by Newby7 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 23 days ago
Hello All Thinking out loud when I research steam engines it seams after they are built or after repair they are tested on an air compressor is it possible to set up a model RC boat to run a steam engine with air if so would it be by compressor or a compressed air bottle . If by compressor is there a small enough unit to go into a boat and be battery operated any ideas . Rick

Hi Gary Good to hear from you the bench work is still on and yes it will run longer on the bench than on the water but for now it's good to see the plant run. Your idea on the shut-off is good I'm still researching. Regards Rick

Hello to Gary Wanted to up-date you on the puffer build the steam plant came in and is now mounted in the puffer everything seems to work so far needs water testing to see how it will run. Rick
