Finishing up Condensor

We decided to re design and rebuild the condenser/oil separator. Inlet for exhaust steam comes from two engines via 1/4" I.D. copper tubing and is bolted to the flanges of a machined Tee which in turn is silver soldered at a tangent to the side of the condenser. Exhaust steam exits the condenser through a flanged 90 elbow. From there it travels to the smokestack.

Lagging is now installed and will be held in place by three threaded rods and tightening hardware. Preston is very close to being finished. The new shop is ready with two 8-foot work benches built up and heavy duty shelving hung for displaying my Vosper MTB, River push boat and a pickle fork racing boat with a K&B 7.5 cc outboard.
