Vertical Boiler Project

       These pages chronicle the construction of a model steam boiler. I am building a vertical steam boiler to power my PM Research 6CI Steam Engine and to learn what I can about model boilermaking. I am posting my building experience with this boiler for the benefit of other amateur model engineers and those who are fascinated with steam power like myself. If you have any questions or comments about this project feel free to contact me.

Thanks, Don Giandomenico
