Need Steam boiler

Post by rhinoevans » Tue Dec 31, 2019 12:08 pm

any chance a steam boiler out there for an S1. The threaded part for the drain snapped off. Not sure if fixable unless buying a new steam boiler. First the hot water elbow into the steam boiler snapped off, and now the drain. what makes these connections so fragile.

I don't have a boiler to sell, but I did have the threaded nipple break off of my own steam boiler. I talked to Chris Coffee and they suggested tapping the inside of the drain tube and then using a stainless cap screw to plug it with an o-ring. This worked prefectly and I have been functional for years after the break. I used an 8 mm-1.25 tap that I bought from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FQ ... UTF8&psc=1
