Thanks for the encouragement Phill. I do have some thick walled tubing, both copper and steel, that I can use for the boiler and the flue. A small problem though - I even have some silver solder that I bought off another group member several years ago, but cannot identify it. Is there any way of doing so please? Does that member remember selling it to me, and if so can he remember what grade it was please? Unfortunately, I have an absolutely lousy memory for names, so there is no way that I can rremember who it was.
