Mr. Charley Spiecer of Sarasota, Florida applies a coat of
Kilrust to the injector steam line on his engine. The Sawyer-Massey
Engine has just been equipped with an all welded boiler built by a
machine company in Illinois that built steam engines several years
ago. It was my pleasure to witness the double working pressure
by-drostatic test on this boiler and needless to say it was in
perfect condition. Charley who is now retired, will have many years
of trouble free pleasure from this new boiler and rebuilt engine.
This engine was in the NTA Steam Show at Wauseon, Ohio.
