Hello All

Updated Comments
In the Twenty First Edition of the Reeves Catalogue on page 34 shows a very interesting selection of boilers

Reeves produced a 6 & 7" Vertical Boiler drawings and cast iron shells
Part numbers 6" = RV62 and the 7" = RV63
?? The RV63 7" is now missing from the website, do you have any details of that boiler ?

Tubal Cain
RV40 3" Diameter boiler for the beam engine Mary
Updated the LBSC design LO86 to M36 5" Vertical Test Boiler in model engineer in 1977

Martin Evans
M30 8" Diameter Vertical Test Boiler - This may have been
Model Engineer 1975, 141, 3525 page 1130 Vertical Multi-Tubular Boiler
?? I wonder if it reappears in his book Model Locomotive and Marine Boilers ??

Thank you VERY much to all those people who have written to date, I really am most grateful for your help.

Miles



Orignal Question
I am looking for information, castings or drawings for vertical test boilers.

For example
- The Reeves 6" Test Boiler
- Tubal Cain 5" Test Boiler M36 from ME 1978
- GLR Kennions 4" vertical boiler

Do you have any drawings, building articles, boiler kits, boiler top castings in the "when I get a minute for sale pile" ?

This is a project to build a boiler rather than a ready made unit.

Finally have you built one of these and have any opinions or comments ?

Thank you very much indeed
Miles


p.s. My email has an underscore rather than a hyphen, so name_surname at icloud.com
