    Glad to see that you've changed your mind about posting your progress on WT. I always look forward to seeing what everyone else is up to in the 2mm section, and what you're achieving is no less than anyone else!

    That's coming along nicely - is that lump of metal by the tweezers a frame to link the boiler and firebox?

    Hi Adrian yes it's the front of the fire box back of the boiler the small triangle shapes with the hole are used to line up the plates (4 of them) once soldered together they are removed and the hole is used to line up the boiler and fire box with a piece of tube that fits into the boiler ( does that make sense)
    Regards
