took me about two years. i went to school to get a boiler
When firing up
the boiler I used petroleum coke as the coal. It burned nice and
hot and did not produce a lot of soot which kept the flues tubes
cleaner for longer period of time and did not get a lot of slag
in the fire box.
I have not fired up the boiler in years but had air
compressor hook up to it at 150 psi. I built the boiler. 5.5" od
wall thickness 7/32" end plates riveted and silver solder fire
tubes flared and solder boiler is well, built will not explode
