Tuesday Torque: Beijer 35 HP Hot Tube Engine, Running This Week!

 We're revisiting the Beijer hot tube engine that was rocking for us last week, and watching it run like it was meant to run. Many thanks to Merle for spotting these videos for us!

Nice engine and the beat of the exhaust sounds good.

I noticed the old style blowtorch sitting on the ground, and my understanding is that they aren't something to use causally, and there is a good reason they fell out of use when the propane torch became available.

John in Phily: Yes, do not use those old brass torches. I knew a guy whose brother died of burns and tetanus because of a brass blow torch. He had fired it up and was holding it between his feet while he pumped up the pressure. The bottom blew out and flaming fuel blew up his trouser legs. This happened while my friend was in the Phillipines during WW II. His brother had taken him to the train station when he left home, and that was the last time they saw each other.
