    Reproduction special wing nuts have been made for tail board and tea urn.
    Another photo shows some of the pipe paint work done.
    I have made a reproduction poker and scraper tools using the original from my Wiles senior as samples ( I don't want to steal stuff from the senior cooker as I will make a future restoration harder.)

    Currently working on the boiler tube cleaning brace of which I don't have a sample, but photos, ,the parts book and the brackets its suppose to hang on give me a good idea of its design and dimensions.

    I have been looking hard at the steaming pots and the way they are made.( they are nothing special)
    I have a plan to fix them, the hardest bit will be forming new replacement bottom sheets.
    I intend cutting a piece of thick steel plate to the rounded square shape and using the thick plate to hammer form to shape the pots new bottom sheet.
    From the factory the bottom sheet once formed were simply oxy welded to the sides.
    The inside was sealed with Tin heated and soldered .

    The hard part will be the tin plating.
    I have to wait until I can raise some money to buy the tin and other gear required.
