I just want to show you the boiler , my friend Jacky, is building.
It is coal supplied and the proper combustion is maintained by a system of jet to help the draught and to allow a good fire.
It is all self explained with the photos, but if you have any question, I am sure that Jacky will be willing to answer.
The amount of rives shows a creative artman and require a lot of patience.
Just enjoy. Some more are coming!

Jacky's design, using multiple venturi's in the smoke box, is similar to the concept tested in the US in the 1870-1890's for RR locos. I made a similar multiple venturi system for a coal-fired boiler (using 2 venturi's, rather than Jacky's 3 venturi's), and found it helped increase the output of BTU's (desireable).
Beautiful work, using proven combustion-enhancement technology, Well Done.
