Vertical coal-fired boiler - stock code 4935

A vertical multi-tube coal-fired boiler which has been stored away in one of the units for several years - I thought it looked like a useful size, just never got around to finding the engine to go with it. Complete with a smokebox/chimney assembly, some fittings, including try cocks, grate, blowdown and pressure gauge. It's externally in immensely scabby condition - mainly cosmetic, a session with wire brush and paint (or the shot blaster if you're feeling flush) would improve things ten-fold.

Diameter 19 inches
Height 31 inches
Tubes 1 1/2 inch outside diameter

Hydraulic test @160psi for 80psi working pressure, certificate issued 28-8-2012
