It looks so massive! It's got to be an impressive steamer too!

You always find the very crustiest of machines and bring them back to life. Fantastic, this is another excellent restoration, Congratulations!

Can you repair the original gauge? It's a very cool design

Yeah, I wouldn't want to loose that dial or that needle indicator either. They are incredible.

You'd think there'd be a profitable enough market to make machines with these kinds of esthetics and curves, with a simple PID for the boiler, and sell them again. I almost want to have my Strega case powder coated :wink:

Another wonderful restoration Vincent. Beautiful design and engineering, and like your color scheme.

Can't wait to see what you come up with next.
