Can someone please tell me the length of the boiler from front to back when it’s delivered - I am planning to make a trolley to move it around.
Thank you very much.

Thank you very much for the quick reply Mark.

Your trolley looks great - I wonder whether you could perhaps give me the dimensions of your trolley as well ?

Thanks Elwood... I did have a look at that, and it is very informative. Unfortunately he is a bit quick with the tape measure and it’s difficult to read his dimensions !

Or do as I did: set the boiler upright - much easier to attach the Smokebox this way - do your mesaurements accordingly. And as soon as trolley is finished lay the boiler (plus smokebox) onto it. Ah and set the width at the firebox so you can leave it on the trolley when you add the hornplates.

Cheers

Hi

The boiler from the front to the back is 875-881mm, this can vary from boiler to boiler as the heat applied to welding can cause minor distortion (but only by a couple of mm).

Many thanks

Will

Hi Milford

Can you PM me an email address? I have done a sketch for you so I'll take a picture of it and email it over?
