I also realy love this stuff, Unfortunatly wery few are left of those where i live, think i hawe only seen one or 2 in my life here so i think i can simply forget to got one, however, a friend hawe some old crude oil engines that is going to be restored (possibly by me in the future).

I recently got some old shaping machines that i will restore as soon as i find a place to install them so i can work indoor during the winter season here.
I also restored an old metal cropping machine last year, it´s still in thousand pieces on pallets, but i will post some pictures of in here when i got the missing parts for it so i can put everything together again.
Some months ago me and the boss here on the blacksmith where i work (he is also wery interested in those things) restored an old mecanical hammer to absolute mint condition.

 I realy love those old machines.

Aw, CRUD, you're in S.C. I was going to offer to come over and help on the weekends (I'm 'way over here in Texas).

I need a little help here.  I have never fired up a full scale steam engine before.  Anybody out there with a Frick Steam Engine Owners Manual?  Please! ?  Wink
Seriously, does anybody out there offer a steam engine operators school.   I don't even know where to put the water in at.
I do know I will need the Fire Box Door and the Ash Box Door.  The Smoke Stack I have been told was optional, but I think I would rather have it.
I'll need to test the pressure relief valve.  Also, I will need to locate a steam pressure gauge (Calibrated).
I'd like to get her going in a year or two at the most.

And PLEASE, YES I know the Boiler has to be tested first.  That fact is known, what I need to know is who will preform this service in S.C. or near by.

Thanks,
Stan aka the Sky Pirate
