Nuts and Nipples

I'm hoping some of my friends on the east side of the pond will have some info they'd be willing to share. I'm looking for drawings on solder type nuts and nipple ends and the mating receiving end.

Pete,

I'm working on designing the casing for my future boiler, would you be willing to share some more detail on the construction of your casing? Especially how the panels fit together and how you are retaining the refractory (also what kind of refractory)

Thanks

Re: T goodhand boiler maker in Kent

I think if it stands 160 psi hydraulic test with ease , then what's the problem?
