    Little has been done on the Wiles Junior as there has been much going on in my private life.
    The oven has been disassembled and some of castings sand blasted and painted.
    What has been found is three old pictures of this same Wiles Junior at work about 25 years ago or more.
    It was been used on some sort of get together for the rural fire service.
    Notice the scones , small whistle, and a beer barrel being used for steam heating hot water.( why this was so I don't know as the tea urn steam heated hot water has always worked.)
    Note the incorrect fitting of the steam pressure gauge without siphon pipe.( this lead to failure of the gauge)
    One photo shows steam pressure about 75 psi on the gauge and another with the safety valve blowing off indicating the boiler was at 100 psi.

    Incorrect Toyota wheels were fitted at this stage of its life.

    .....
    Quite possibly to provide a larger quantity of hot water, for example, for the washing up?
