Fitting Waist Sheets

Wednesday, November 28, 2018 by MC

Five sets of waist sheets and the saddle hold the boiler above the frame. We only had one and one half of the five original sheets. We placed the original ones in place and then had new sheets cut out to to replace the missing ones. Finally we transfer punched and drilled the mounting holes. They will be fastened in place using tapered bolts.
