3-Feb-10 The smokebox to boiler mounting band has been rolled, sized and welded together. We have had to adapt the blueprint plans to the boiler since the boiler is both not round and is undersize from the prints. We will use a wide 1-1/2" band on the Outside of both boiler and smokebox. The band will be welded onto the boiler and the drilled and tapped to the smokebox. Funny thing happened after welding the ends of the band--the band _shrunk_ in size. We had it clamped for a nice fit on the smokebox, but you could see daylight between the band at several places. Not so after the weld cooled! We have a shrink fit now!
