Impressive.
For the assembly photo I see a hoist in your future to move the work around.

A nice looking beast, I can't wait to hear your report on the sealing effectiveness of Kozo's no ring piston valve and whether there is any steam blow past after things are run in. Regards Paul Gough.

Some intricate work indeed Dale. Nicely done though and nice to see it all fitting together as well.

Here is my stack ,this was a really hard for me to do .There is a lot of things that could go wrong .I ruined the top set by getting it to hot ,very easy to do on such small parts onto a big part .A lot of hand work to do also . I am not really happy with it but O well it is a train .right ?

Oh - those must have been a drag to solder on the chimney.

I can only imagine making a jig from stainless to hold them in place while soldering and using a "dam" to keep the older in place.
Why stainless - well it got a low heat transfer characteristic for a metal.

Best wishes
