My son has returned the boiler. How he can build thickness with silver solder I don't know, but he has. Will have to try and get it tested again now. Unfortunately my tester has moved away, so I have to find a different one. One who is not obsessed with trains. In the mean time I will have a steam up with the engine out of the model. (some time this week) Geoff

There will be no steam up for a wile, had a bit of trouble with the pump.  Mine that is not the steam plant. Had a free ride in an ambulance and 4 days in hospital good job we don't pay in the UK. Diagnosis posterial artery (to brain)completely blocked Fortunately for me the right front has taken up the job. Unfortunately for me this had also blocked 95%. Two stents fitted to front so feeling a lot better. The down side the boss has band me from the workshop for a few weeks. So it looks I will never get to the PADDLER DAY. Geoff Well not this Year again.

Geoff,
Take care of your health first, there is always next year if you do.
Mend yourself quickly, then back into the build.
Take care

Thank you my friends for your best wishes. :08  I was disappointed wanted a ride in the air ambulance.  :darn Never mind feeling a hell of a lot better already.  After having one artery useless and another only working 5%, when I have rested  :vacation I think I'll be jumping over the moon. Have temporary withdrawn from captain of the bowling club,( will be drinking less) :beer  so will have more time in the workshop. When I fined the key,  :thinking where has she hidden it. When the grand kids come over we will have a game of fined the key. Geoff

I have had a look around the workshop  :o ( when the boss was out). The jobs are mounting up I'm afraid, bits to mend for the house, bits to make for motorcycles.  As for the model I had a good look  ::) at the boiler?? I don't think I can present it at the model engineering club. What with the repair, the dent and the slight twist ( the latter two due to me :oops dropping it ). I have said before the club is very much railway orientated, so I must not let the boating fraternity down. I have tested it myself that will have to do, so only be operating in private.  This is no great loss as it has only cost me time and gas.  However I have ordered new copper and will have another go using the experience gained with the first. :hammer I have another year before paddler day 2013 if I ever make it.

Something to report at last. :sunglasses :sunglasses Lagged the boiler and made the casing. The lagging made from a soldering mat & the casing from a road sign. (NOT :nono STOLEN) Geoff
