Ray, @ what point do you do some kind of a pressure test?  Will you do one in stages to make sure *up to that point* you're OK, do you do one major test near the end, or when it's rolling stock you run it & see if there's any excess blow off?

thanks Bruce,  I am hoping in the next day or  2 I will get the grinding done , and weld the firebox on.  Mark  ,after the boiler is comlpete , but befor it is installed, it will receive a pressure test.  This test is called a hyrdo test.  I will fill the boiler full of water , and then pump more water against the water in the boiler ,  I plan on running at 130lbs steam pressure so the hydro will be at least 260, prob closer to 300.
