Default Re: Something new and kinda sorta 100 years old looking

Here's a little update. Progress got slowed up a bit by my seriously throwing my back out and also needing to divert funds to Christmas presents. My back is feeling some better (had an MRI yesterday) and I've started picking up some needed steam hardware - a solenoid valve to regulate water flow and a pressure relief valve. I still need to purchase a gas regulator valve that is temperature controlled. It's going to be pricey so I'm pacing myself for that one. I need a couple gauges yet and a motorcycle battery. Motor should be together within the week. I need to meet a deadline as I hope to have a display at a steampunk convention in late March. Exhibits are juried some time in January. I at least need to be able to mock this thing up for a photo (along with a steam sculpture piece I'm working on).
