how to build model steam boiler

Vertical Boiler Project - RCDON

I am building a vertical steam boiler to power my PM Research 6CI Steam Engine and to learn what I can about model boilermaking. I am posting my building experience with this boiler for the benefit of other amateur model engineers and those who are fascinated with steam power like myself.

Making Simple Model Steam Engines: Stan Bray: 8601200851892

Very nice well bound hard back with drawings for home built steam engines, boilers, burners as well as various fittings. Most of the engines are simple oscillating type but there are a couple of others. Good introduction to engine building with a chapter on tools, measuring and materials. Clear black and white photos of each project engine.

Vertical Boiler Project 4/23/11 - RCDON

This boiler will use a set of 31 fire tube boiler tubes which will be used as the primary heating surface to make steam. The boiler tubes will be held in place by swaging or flaring the ends with a swaging tool. This will mechanically hold the end plates in place and keep them from bowing out.

and shape and will last for several similar boilers. Use the flanging plate to mark out the copper sheet. A piece of ½ inch brass bar drilled to push over a pencil will mark a line ¼ inch larger than the former. Expect to anneal each plate 4 or more times, It is better and less messy to allow the copper to

Vertical Boiler Project 3/28/11 - RCDON

This means that I will have to build a fairly large boiler compared to the majority of model boilers made today. The 6CI engine has a 1.5 diameter piston with a stoke of 2.5 which can really use up a great deal of steam volume in a short period of time.

Model Boiler Material?? - Practical Machinist

The reason model builders prefer copper for home-built boilers is that it is easy to form, anneal, and join, and is corrosion resistant most important for occasionally used boilers. If you choose to use steel you may wish to use a corrosion inhibitor in the boiler water.

MODEL BOILERS - John-Tom

MODEL BOILERS All joints exposed to the flames should be silver-soldered, and other joints as well if the working pressure is to exceed 50 lbs. to the square inch. Silver-soldering requires the use of a powerful blow-lamp or gas-jet; ordinary soft soldering bits and temperatures are ineffective. Brazing is better still, but should
