Stuart 500 gas-fired boiler - stock code 4374

A Stuart 500 boiler, complete with all fittings, original gas burner and a ceramic burner with gas tank. Quite the nicest way to fire one of these popular water tube boilers, ceramic burners are very quiet and can be throttled down to a small flame, keeping the boiler at a civilised pressure to run a mill or beam engine without constantly lifting the safety valve.

There is some paint loss to the steel firebox cladding sheets - it's a quick and easy job to unscrew the longitudinal bolts and respray sheets and cast end plates into satin black, whereupon it would look as good as new.

Working pressure 60psi.
